“Be prepare to walk and open your eyes”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

A huge park in the city. A lot of people. When we went it was raining but we appreciate so, I suppose when the sun is there it is surely splendid. Put good shoes on and bring your camera. It is an overlook place.

“Don't visit with children”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

This is a lovely, pretty building, but the staff expect you to be absolutely silent as you visit. We visited with a really well behaved child who held our hand all the way round and asked questions about the shapes and animals he saw. We were 'ssshhh...d' by just about every guide and made to feel pretty unwelcome.

“A jewel”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

Gaudí keeps amazing you. Go to the park and the palace of Güell and be stunned by the artist's imagination: colours, shapes, designs, animals.... it is a jewel!

“Very Enjoyable Visit”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

Not a massive fan of Gaudi, the Guell Palace was none the less an amazing place to visit. Not too crowded due to a very sensible system of staggered entry. We really enjoyed exploring all floors of the building and found the audio guide informative without being overley wordy. The view from the roof is great , taking photos of the quirky chimneys a must!
