Gaudi's 5 Must-See Barcelona Buildings

The body of work by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí falls somewhere between real and imagined, deep in history and living in present. These buildings are the must-sees of Barcelona for everyone everywhere, not just the architecture buff, not just in Spain.

Sagrada Familia

The church was Gaudí’s masterpiece and was only a quarter complete when he died at 73. Completion is estimated about a decade from now, a century after the master’s death.

Palau Güell

Palau Güell was the palace of Gaudí’s greatest commissioner, industrialist Eusebi Güell. It is known for its ornate iron gate entrance for horse-drawn carriages.

La Pedrera

Inspired by natural movement, Gaudi's house is more sculpture than structure. Moving through it feels like exploring a cave, an experience both modern and organic.

Park Güell

This surreal wonderland showcases the variety of Gaudí’s virtuoso. Arrive early to beat the crowds; chances are you’ll still catch some Spanish guitar on the steps.

Casa Batlló

Locals refer to the property as the House of Bones, and a visit to the site with its dragon scale roof is a must!

Guell Palace: Our Tips

Buy tickets ahead of time

Many of the buildings will have long lines, especially the Sagrada Familia. Do yourself a favor and buy the tickets online far ahead of time. Park Güell will assign you a specific time to enter, which makes the experience more serene and worthwhile for everyone.

Take the metro everywhere

It’s pretty easy to navigate. Instead of buying each trip individually, purchase the 10-trip ticket and share it among your travel buddies. It’s much cheaper, nearly 10 trips for 10 euro.

Good to Know

    The Palace is open Tuesday through Sunday, 10:00AM to 8:00PM, summer and 10:00AM to 5:30PM, winter.
  • What is the price?
    General admission palace tickets start at 12EUR, and go up as you add other ticket packages and perks.
  • Will I need a guide?

What People Are Saying About Guell Palace

An enlightening tour by an entertaining guide

The Guide (Miguel) was very informative, charming, funny, and it was a pleasure to be shown around the city centre by him. I must admit, I didn't know that the metro was going to be used to get from A to B in some places, but even that was a pleasant surprise as I had not intended to use the underground when there. Miguel further kept the tour entertaining by showing photos from his file of Gaudi himself, and his works, and there was also a small quiz which I won the prize for of a lolly-pop... it will all become clear on your tour and I won't spoilt it be giving the answer to the question here.

Loved the tour. Marc was an excellent and knowledgable guide. He really helped to enhance my experience of Gaudi and his work, his genius and his religious devotion. If you're looking for a walking tour, I'd definitely recommend this one.
Gaudí Free Walking Tour in Barcelona Reviewed by Kate, 10/15/2016

This was quite possibly the best thing that I did in Barcelona!

This was an incredible experience for my entire family. Our guide, Miguel, was charming, knowledgeable, and really gave us a unique perspective into the life and works of Gaudi. He was also very understanding and got us to the Sagrada Familia in time for our reservation there, we were only upset that we weren't able to hear that part of his tour!!! Again, I stress what a wonderful experience we had.
