Thank you for your comment, but for your post, it seems to be about Park Güell, not our cultural equipment the Palau Güell.
Kind regards.

“Like no Park you can imagine!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

DIY touring...look past the crowds and do take time to look at the details in ceilings, fences, drainage systems, mosaics. Recommend taking a taxi to the park...it is quite a walk uphill on a hot day otherwise (HOHO bus stop is at bottom of the hill)

“So interesting”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Have you ever seen a home with stables for horses in the basement? And a circular slanted ramp from street level down to the stables? This is truly a unique home, in many ways. Don't miss walking out on the roof!

“Paying to enter a park”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

There's only one part that it's "protected" bu you have to pay either way. Was dissapointed to have to pay to see nature in the city.

We appreciate your remark about an attraction of Barcelona, but apparently your explanation, seems to refer to Park Güell, not our cultural equipment the Palau Güell.

Kind regards.

“Okay but nothing great.”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

I would say the place was just okay but amazingly expensive! Look at the pictures.
It is pretty but I just can't see why the queuing was so long for such an average place.
