My luck it was because this museum I ta was located near Onix Liceo hotel, so I had privilege to visit. It was very interesting with chance to learn and accumulate many knowledge .

Build by Gaudi for his friend and patron Guell. Handcarved, everything is a magnificent tribute to a golden age of money and privilege. Handsets are free and guide you around. 5 star

Step in the world of a rich family in the beginning of the 20th century. What a wealth, what a beautiful use of material. Very interesting Gaudi monument.

Admission was 12 euros each, which was a bit expensive for what you are able to see. The audio guide helps explain a lot of the rooms in the building, but you have to enjoy architecture if you want to avoid getting too bored by...More

Palau Güell with Parc Güell are the crown jewels of Barcelona and a visit to the city will be incomplete without a visit to both

If you stay at Le Meridien you get complimentary access to this site and it’s worth a visit to see Gaudi’s creations in this palatial family home. The design and detail was before it’s time and the way it is preserved is exceptional.

It's not a park. It's a failed housing area for wealthy Barcelonans. And the developer's loss is our gain. It's a hard-to-describe magical place. Definitely take the guided tour. Our guide Jeff (Not sure what his name was in Catalan) was knowledgeable, charming, and quite...More

We toured Palau Guell and enjoyed it very much. Compared to the other Gaudi attractions it was empty which made the visit very nice. The home is magnificent and is just off of La Rambla. They even have a rooftop Terrance to take in great...More

We finally made it to the Palau Guell on our last day in Barcelona. This was the outstanding visit of the trip. When I was last in the Palau in 1973 it was almost in ruins and being used by a local theatre group. The...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

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
