I wasn't able to go, however, the owners distribute free tickets to the first 300 or so people at 4:30 on Sundays. This used to be a free attraction (as will a lot in Barcelona that no longer are, i.e. Park Guell, Montjuic Castle, Caixa Forum)

After walking through Park Guell wondering if we were in the Palace until we stumbled on to the entrance of it. Was pretty cool designs inside but i think the entrance price was a bit steep for what it was....

We had already seen the Casa Batllo and La Pedrera as well as Park Guell, so we weren't sure the Guell Palace was going to be worth seeing. Luckily, we were wrong! This building is really quite amazing and there's a lot to see here. The roof designs alone were worth the price of admission. Definitely worth the visit!

This is one of Gaudi's buildings that we missed during our previous visit to Barcelona, so we jumped at the chance to see it this time.

Even in this early building Gaudi's genius and attention to detail is visible. The audio guide was very informative, although frustratingly we couldn't access the extra snippets that it occasionally offered us.

The main hall in particular is beautiful: relatively small, due to the small footprint available for the building, but perfectly formed. During a recent restoration the existing pipe organ was replaced and occasionally during our visit it burst into life to give visitors an idea of the excellent acoustic of the space and what it might have been like to attend a recital here during the building's heyday.

There's a lot to see, without buying the tickets to go into the pay area or museum. The only downside is all the crappy souvenir stations set up that our small children are drawn to like flies ;).
