Owner description: This palace was the home of industrialist Eusebi Guell and was Antonio Gaudi's first major building in the city..

Guell Palace is a complete surprise, while not very remarkable from the outside, the interiors take your breath away. It's hard to imagine how every single detail has been carefully thought of to maximise on the space in which it is built. The handicraft and workmanship is unsurpassed, and the effort is amazing. It would have been amazing to live here.

We were planning on the Gadi home and the church Sagrada Familia. This one we walked to and decided to try when in the neighborhood.

It best showcased Gaudi's work, I thought. Excellent!

It was an earlier work by Gaudi, but I visited it the last. What a surprise! Compared to pedrera or even sagrada familia, the ornamentation and the richness of the materials is over-the-top. The craftsmanship is awesome. I would call this style arts & crafts meets art-nouveau. But the wonderful part is that underneath all the glitter, there is the practicality/simplicity/spirituality/functionality that Gaudi carries through all his works.
