Cool place, reachable from Barcelona Center. Disadvantage price-quality and the Church is closing into an ugly paddock.

I discovered this attraction while waiting in the train station in Barcelona. My family and I had several Gaudi sites planned for our trip but I hadn’t heard of this one and it looked interesting. We ended up adding it to our itinerary and I’m...More

Do you know how to pronounce the name 'Güell'? Do you know why have Gaudi abandoned this project? Do you know what the final project would have looked like? Go there and figure out the answers for yourself. It's worth it! :-)

Interesting but less to see than expected. This is a former industrial complex wherethey made cotton into thread for clothing production and it is quite vast with a social aspect to it as it has social housing, a school and a church build by Gaudi....More

You will need a Zone 2 card. It's just beyond the inner zone, about a 20 minute trip.
