Güell Palace (Palau Güell)

Calle Nou de la Rambla 3-5, Barcelona, Catalonia, 08001

The Basics

Built in the 1880s, the 7-story Palau Güell is an early example of art nouveau and modernism adapted for domestic use. The imposing facade features two parabolic arches with wrought iron grille, and has Arabic, Byzantine, and Mudejar forms throughout. Note the impressive central hall, covered by a dome with star-pricked ceiling, and don’t miss the roof and its 20 colorful chimneys.

Explore Palau Güell on your own or on a guided tour. Visits to Palau Güell can be combined with sightseeing tours covering other masterpieces by Antoni Gaudí, including Sagrada Familia, Park Güell, Casa Batlló, and Casa Milà, or other Barcelona neighborhoods such as the Barri Gòtic, El Born, and Barceloneta. Or visit on a hop-on hop-off bus to explore the city at your leisure.

Luigi was a fantastic tour guide, showing us more than we had imagined. The lunch stop was superb. This was the perfect first day for us in Barcelona, giving us context for the rest of our stay. Luigi is also flexible and will adjust if you want to slow down or see more in the time you have.
