The free park surrounding the main area is very nice and includes a lot of the great architecture we came to see. The price to get in to the main area is quite high and needs to be reserved in advance. In addition, the main area doesn't offer a whole lot more than the park. We had to put an... More

Really enjoyed this part of the park. The ceiling is wonderful and the pillars are interesting. Well worth going and taking a look from outside and seeing the gargoyles...or were they dogs??

The first impression would be "what a rich man's house it is". The decoration was so delicate and there is also an organ inside. The early style if Gaudi was different and one can visit Palau Guell even with casa Batllo or casa Mila scheduled. There were much wood and steel. Although it would not be the style I love,... More

We initially saw this on one of our walking tours so understood the rather "serious" exterior. The inside however is something else, so ornate with such clever use of light and space. The roof of course is the pièce de résistance with fantastic views across the city.

This fabulous house is a must see if you love Gaudi. This architectural gem on a domestic scale,just off the ramblas is well worth a visit.

The park is lovely and as they manage the numbers, not too busy to enjoy. Sitting having a beer in the cafe was most relaxing and it has a lovely atmosphere.

Make sure you see Palau Guell - as well as Parc Guell - they are beautiful, original works of architecture. Do not miss!

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.
