The Palau itself is more than interesting with bits of Gaudis magic dotted about. Then you go on the roof. It is FANTASTIC, with many stacks conic spires and sheer beauty Worth going for the roof top and views alone. It also has a very...More

It's a unique grand town house in the centre of Barcelona. The details of design are fascinating and the place gives great insight into life in Barcelona as well as Gaudi's work. It's not a large palace; the detail and innovation stand out, not the...More

Earlier Gaudi design but more complete than Casa Batllo with Gaudi designed furnishings and more rooms to visit

Park full of people. Wonderful view of the city and imaginative view of future housing but essentially a failed housing model. Found it a bit disappointing because of the build up.

Free on sundays but you need to queue for the ticket first and then come for a given time slot. Impressive architecture, pity it’s mostly not furnished, Gaudi is the best but personaly i would´t pay for this one

We visited most Gaudi sites in Barcelona and this was actually my favorite. Best part is it was one of the cheapest and least crowded. It is only about 50 yards off la rambla. It is one of his earlier designs and it has a...More

Must visit for true Gaudi fans & enjoy the more technical stuff. If not, probably can skip. Nice setup

Really a beautiful building with lots of interesting features. If you're interested in Gaudi, it's an opportunity to see his style developing in this early work.

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

It was busy at sporadic times. I went past there 3 times (one of which I went in) and the one time I did go in i didn’t pre-book and it was basically empty. But I’d recommend pre-booking as the line can be 30-40min long... More
