Ok so Sagrada may be the first port of call when you reach Barcelona, but booking rather expensive tickets on line, crowds for days all for an unfinished church might not be to everyone's liking. I'd recommend Palau Guell instead if you want to get...More

Palau Guell is only 2 minutes or so on foot from Barcelona Party Central (Plaça Reial), but amazingly quiet and undervisited. Other Gaudi sites were mobbed, while here I was able to enjoy peace and quiet amd some sense of intimacy with this amazing building....More

Just of La Rambla this palace is well worth a couple of hours of your time. Only opened in 2011 after careful restoration this palace gives amazing insight into Gaudi’s work, his relationship with Guell, the family life of the Guells and the craftsmanship of...More

Go to Barcelona to see the gifts of Gaudi. Palau Guell is particularly lovely. We were working in Barcelona for 3 months when our grand daughter came to pick out a wedding dress at the flag ship store--and a beautiful dress it was! We decided...More

Closed for so many years, it is one of my favorite Gaudi's house. Audio guide is so informative. Do not miss the roof, and if you can do the night visit which includes a concert on the rooftop with a glass of cava (or 2)!

This attraction is definitely worth a visit, the highlight for me being the colorfully decorated chimneys. But I found Casa Batlo a more fascinating stop on the Gaudi trail.

I have been to almost all of Gaudí buildings, this is one of the cheaper ones and the most interesting one!

We went late in the afternoon, close to closing time and there was no line and barely anyone inside. The interior is stunning and gives a good sense of Gaudi's early work and how it evolved over his all-too-short career. The roof is amazing.

Just off the Rambla and a welcome respite from the heat. On 1st Sunday you get in for free instead of the usual €12 per person. Eclectic and a gentle introduction to Gaudi especially when compared to his later works. Delighted we chanced to see...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
