Situated just off La Rambla, to the right as you walk towards the sea. The Palau Guell is a charming residence designed by Gaudi. It resembles a medieval house with entrance and stables, central hall and viewing galleries. But it also has elements of Southern Europe and the Middle East, with courtyards and shade. Charming. Audio guide is included with... More

This house is the reason I came to Barcelona. I am a real Anthoni Gaudi fan. The home is a fantasy land.of good living. I think the best part is the roof whose chimneys are cones of different shapes and colors. Since we stayed at the Hotel Gaudi we would sit on the roof and stare at the lighted chimneys... More

This has been one of the highlights of our visit to Barcelona. No queues to get in, good AV guide. A must see for visitors, especially for Gaudi fans.

We took advice from previous reviews and arrived at Vallcarca Metro and made use of their escalators up to the amazing views over Barcelona from the top of the hill - I would allow at least an hour from the Metro as you will want to stop and soak it all up, and probably get lost as we did, as...

We took the journey and were pleased we did. If you are on the tour bus beware if you have walking difficulties. It is a little hilly and the bus does not stop close to the park. We queued for tickets to go into the house and observe some of Gaudis work but they were already scheduling timings of 17.30... More

We decided to stop in here as it was close to our hotel. I say, I enjoyed Palau Guell much more than Casa Botllo. It was half the price, and nearly empty, so that helped too.

This was one of my favourite Gaudi exhibits. It had a really Gothic feel and I love that it came with a headset so you can listen to the background information about the place. If I remember correctly, this was built for the Guell Royal family and they lived there for many years until Gaudi built Parc Guell for the... More

Do not leave Barcelona without seeing this building. No words can describe how much you will appreciate your visit. The skill, craftsmanship, use of numerous materials, architectural skills are truly phenomenal. Snr Guell must have been a very, very rich man and Snr Gaudi, a genius. Tickets can be bought at the entrance. The moment you walk into the central... More

We all know that Gaudi put his mark on Barcelona's architecture and more generally Spanish modernism. His creativity just does not know no bounds. And -luckily for us- he had the admirers and financial support necessary to put his dreams and creations into reality. The Guëll Palace is one of them. Organised around a central 3-storeys high central "reception /music"... 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.
