We are very sorry that you lived an unpleasant situation like that in our city, but for your comments it seamed to have happened in the Park Güell, not in our equipment: the Palau Güell. In any case, thank you for your comment.

A bargain with free entry on the first Sunday of each month; prepare for a line to acquire timed-entry tickets, but line moves smoothly. Audio guide is oddly mismatched with some interior numbers, but generally helpful. Beautiful interior.

We stumbled on this Gaudi masterpiece by chance. It was much cheaper than the other Gaudi houses but was amazing especially the roof terrace. Audio guide was included in the entrance price

Not the most famous of Gaudi's houses but for us is second only to the Sagrada. Great value for money, full of amazing architecture and design features, audio tour included in the price is a must.

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.

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
