Beautiful. Excellent for anyone who loves Gaudi or has a taste for the gothic. Palau Guell has a lot of history and the Audi guides are easy to follow and free. Very cheap exhibit as well considering and a great thing to do as a family. They have the option for a full tour or an express tour which is... More

We loved all of the details that the artist and creator put into this part of Guell. Resembling trees a bit, the natural shape is enhanced by the inventive eye of Antonio Gaudi'.

We decided to visit the Palau guell and when we arrived they had a guided visit planned in French which was part of the price so we decided to go for that instead of taking an audio guide. That was our big mistake, this woman guide wasn't at all fluent in French, actually it was her first time. Couldn't understand... More

A lovely and interesting place. Visited with my husband. Left kids att home. Teenagers can enjoy but not smaller kids. Do listen to the audio guide! After the visit you will love Gaudí. There was a line, but we only waited 15 minutes (shade). Go!

After enduring the queues of the other Gaudi attractions, I was amazed at the lack of people here. Apart from the Sagrada this was the highlight of our trip. Unassuming from the outside, it leaves you gasping in wonder at the craftsmen at work here. It is run by the council so maybe not all tourists are aware of it... More

What can I say an icon of Barcelona. That beautiful & lucky city to have so much Gaudi's legacy. You should try & visit as much of Gaudi's architecture when there, But Barcelona isn't all about him. It's a wonderful city to visit in its own right, with excellent restaurants, bars, hotels, food, La Rambla, La Boqueria, Picasso Museum, even... More

Gaudi's mind at work. not very expensive. A different idea of a palace. Close to Las Ramblas in the Raval. This palace was designed by Gaudi for his patron Guell.

The guy was a genius. I love his work! In all of our trips to Barcelona, we had never visited this place before. Get a guide, as it is most interesting

I learnt of Antoni Gaudi several years ago and said I would like to visit his buildings, I had a significant Birthday this year and my Daughter took me to Barcelona, Palau Guell was one I did not know about. We were given the tip to be a little adventurous and walk down some of the side streets from Las... More

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
