The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

It is a beautiful palace and if you visit other masterpieces of Gaudí in Barcelona, you will see that is an architectural lab for other famous buildings of the architect.
What is most amazing of the building are the doors details, the stained glasses, the chapel, and the ceilings. The roof is also very interesting, how Gaudí experiments with 'trencadís' and the chimneys which you can see similar shapes to 'Sagrada Família' towers or 'la pedrera'.
A very recommended visit to see other creations of the architect.

Everything. Not only the spectacular roof but all little but elaborate detail. Windows, doors, staircases. Elen a toilet is a masterpice. Plus, at that day we had a little bit of organ music

It is absolutely incredible to see the palace, you step back in time and can only imagine the grandeur. You will wear out your storage because every step is a photo op.

Located on side street so it is easy to miss if you don't know about it. Buy tickets on-line as there is timed entry to control crowds. Very reasonable price and enjoyable.

Beautiful building right in the middle of La Rambla.

The ticket costs €12. If you are in La Rambla area, it’s worth a visit.

I stumbled across Palau Güell when I was exploring the area near my hotel upon arrival at Barcelona, having never visited Spain before. It doesn’t look like much from the outside, but inside, it’s just beautiful. The roof terrace in particular is really something to behold. Reasonable price too, which is just as well as it isn’t included in the Go City pass. There’s an audio guide, although it’s an app you have to download to listen to the audio guide on your phone - they don’t have devices to hand out themselves. This wasn’t well explained by staff there. In fact, it wasn’t explained at all - I saw other people doing something and asked them. Despite language barriers, we just about managed to understand each other. Once I’d got it sorted, off I went with my audio guide. It was all going well, but towards the end, I did get a bit lost and couldn’t find the next numbers, so I just gave up in the end. A lovely house though, and well worth a visit.

We came in 2021 and the entry was only 5 euro each and we could walk around and explore by ourselves for as long as we wanted. We really enjoyed this casa a lot, hardly anyone was inside so we managed to have the rooms to ourselves most of the time.

The engineering and decor in this house is incredible. The audio tour is a little over-long (take headphones and a charged up phone because you do it using your phone, not their devices) but you can skip bits if you want. You can go down into the stables and up on the roof and everywhere inbetween for only EUR12, which is pretty reasonable.

Guell family had so much money that Antonio Gaudi was able to implement his most virtuozo ideas. Loved terrace with colourful chimneys, great sound of organ and piano. Take a guided tour, you would not regresa time spent in this magical place.Till the end of 2021 guided tour just 5 EUR.
