Great tour and restoration. A real bargain and great audio and visual tour. The Palau is beautiful. I particularly enjoyed seeing the basement carriage and horse area the brick work was amazing.

This seriously may be my favorite site in Barcelona (besides Sagrada). My friend and I had no clue this existed until we came upon it looking for something to do. Very cheap tickets... the student price was €11. Like I saw in another review, definitely...More

Cheaper than most of Gaudi s residences /museums and well worth a visit. Fantastic architecture and you must go onto the roof.

In the heart of Barca's historical area is the museum. Crowds were a little busy but that's what happens i guess. Def recommend.

This was a great place to visit. Make sure you go early so you are not there with the crowds. Give yourself plenty of time to visit this home. You will need it. The audio tour was great because it was very helpful.

Not your average Joe’s residence.....I made it for a free tour just by dumb luck, and the waiting line really wasn’t bad at all, because they have Timed Entry specified. The place is fabulous, even if I wouldn’t want to live there. It’s a marvel.

At last minute, we decided to take a tour of this house. It seems out of place in its location, but beautiful! You receive an audio guide upon entry. That was a nice feature. You can go through all of the rooms and then stand...More

Built by Gaudi, this is slightly less organic in feel that some of his other works in the city, but nonetheless impressive, I particularly liked the dragon above the ground floor entrance.

Build by Gaudi for his friend and patron Guell. Handcarved, everything is a magnificent tribute to a golden age of money and privilege. Handsets are free and guide you around. 5 star

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

It was busy at sporadic times. I went past there 3 times (one of which I went in) and the one time I did go in i didn’t pre-book and it was basically empty. But I’d recommend pre-booking as the line can be 30-40min long... More
