Excellent guide. Fascinating insight into past age.

Well organized tour. Intimate and informative. Good to see a grand building by an architect other than Gaudi. No big crowds as at Casa Batlló next door, which is of course worth visiting. Insightful to understand competitive nature of the well-to-do of Barcelona in late 1800s/early 1900s as they sought to outdo each other. The chocolate drink at the end was a nice touch, and fitting in the house built by a chocolate entrepreneur!

Excellent Tour of Historic Home

Guide was very well informed and provided a very enjoyable and educational tour of such a beautiful residence. The experience of seeing this home was much better than expected. It was truly wonderful to see the interiors as they were originally, and so well maintained.

Very interesting, we learned a lot. The guide explained to us really well. We recommend it
