Palau Guell gets knocked back in the must visit stakes by the likes of Casa Batllo and La Pedrera on Passeig de Gracia but it is absolutely worth a visit. Tucked away at the bottom of La Rambla Palau Guell doesn't look much from the outside but once you are inside it is a Gaudi masterpiece. You visit nearly every... More

Beautiful Gaudi building. Make sure to visit in good weather so the roof terrace is open. Magnificent chimneys and ornaments.

We were unfortunate that the only day we could visit was a 'free' day which meant a long queue either at 10am or 1.30pm for tickets - we would rather have booked and paid with a child in tow but this wasn't an option. Still once inside it was spectacular with a very good audioguide.

Another masterpiece by Gaudi this man was so good at what he did one of the best! So ahead of the curve just brilliant this place is quite toned down compared to some of his more colourful works which do come into play once you hit the roof! This is a very nice house indeed and well worth an hour... More

We had no idea from the outside about how wonderful and huge this palace is. Lots of stairs, but lift available to those with mobility problems. A real insight into this family home and Gaudi's inspiration.

If you have an hour to spare in the city center, hop over to Palau Guell. This was the city home of Guell, designed by Gaudi, in all its intricate details and glory. The house is huge and fully decorated, although partially furnished in original pieces. The entrance fee is fairly cheap for such an attraction in Barcelona (around 10... More

Be carful in the are as you can go wrong and come to a difficult area as we did we were ok together but it looked a... More

Space well maintained and filled with beauties and curiosities. The circulation of people is not great which makes the visit prosaic. Price for entrance is fair.

Staying in El Raval

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
