This palace makes brilliant use of the confined space of its site. The features such as the central dome, the basement for stabling and the way the light can be controlled is remarkable.

The house is a real Gaudi mixture of materials and designs. The presentation is well explained in the audio guide but some exhibitions are only in Spanish. When the organ plays it is magic for the ears. 🎼🎼

His use of space and light is really highlighted here and such a small plot. Amazing main rooms and love this roof terrace too. Audio guide really informative too.

Palau Guell is just a half block of Las Ramblas and easy to find. It is one of Gaudi's masterpieces, with beautiful architecture and internal furnishings. Of course the roof is lined with whimsical chimneys. Even if you don't have to go, walk down the...More

Stunning work of Gaudí, from designing to building the home of his good friend Guell. Personally this was my second most favorite place to visit while in Barcelona, surpassed only by La Sagrada. Make sure to pick up the audio guide on your way in,...More

We visited here on our last day (we’d been staring at it all week as we were staying in the hotel opposite!) and I’m glad we visited. It’s really nice, an interesting building. Staff were friendly throughout, but especially the lady on the roof, really...More

We were absolutely stunned by this place! It's really a must while you're in Barcelona. The tickets price was reasonable also, we paid €28 for 2 adults and 1 child. It was totally worth it!

Helpful docents (I required use of elevator). Interesting early work of Gaudi. Liked all the wood. Roof sculptures not my thing, but Gaudi lovers would like them.

This was a beautiful house and the basement is particularly interesting. There are lots of stairs and uneven surfaces when you visit. It didn't happen to be very busy when we were there and we were able to go in a half hour earlier than...More

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

The only time I know of that is free is on the first Sunday of the month. If they have changed that policy maybe you can go to their web site and get the information you are seeking.
