Reviewed December 19, 2013

One of the primary attractions of Barcelona includes the Torre Bellesguard Castle which was designed by the Catalan architect, Antoni Gaudi. The castle was recently opened to the public and I thoroughly enjoyed my tour. Built over the ruins of Marti I l’Huma’s summer palace, the castle is now partially occupied. The castle is inspired largely by Gothic architecture and you can find a bell arch, towers, gargoyles and crenellated battlements of an exemplary nature. The interiors of the castle are colourful and ornate, but are rarely viewed by tourists. My tour lasted a full two hours and I soaked in as much history as I possibly could, hanging onto every syllable uttered by my dear guide! The Torre Bellesguard adds to the cultural and historical heritage of the elusive Barcelona.

Not overcrowded place, still a private home - carefully preserved and restored, definitely worth a certain ride wjich was not so complicated in reality. We shared a tour with a couple from the UK - so, I was able to provide some translations for our non-English speaking Russian majority (there were 5 of us). A unique combination of medieaval original style with Gaudi fantastic approach brought a rare fruit... And - you can feel yourself inside it, like a guest. Thanks for the privilege!

As a big fan of Barcelona I always enjoy discovering new things whenever I visit. I knew Torre Bellesguard had only been open to the public for a month but I expected it to be crowded with tourists like the more well known Gaudí creations. So I was pleasantly surprised to find I was the only person on the English speaking tour. The young lady who conducted the tour (I'm sorry, I didn't ask your name!) was exceptionally well researched and I was educated on Gaudí, Torre Bellesguard and the history of the area too. Both the building and gardens are beautiful in the way that everything Gaudí created is. The house is partially occupied, how fortunate to reside in a work of art! I feel honoured to have visited Torre Bellesguard in the early days of it's opening to the public and sincerely wish all involved the best of luck with this venture.

It's been amazing discovering this unknown gaudinian treasure, probably the most recommended attraction in Barcelona. It's worth a visit!
