Gaudi’s masterpieces are known as the must-go-to places in Barcelona. Are you ready to see the Sagrada Familia and his other works through the eyes…
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.
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 was the palace of Gaudí’s greatest commissioner, industrialist Eusebi Güell. It is known for its ornate iron gate entrance for horse-drawn carriages.
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.
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.
Locals refer to the property as the House of Bones, and a visit to the site with its dragon scale roof is a must!
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.
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.
- When to visitThe 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?It depends. Some buildings, such as Casa Battló, are best experienced with an audio guide. Since the Sagrada Familia has a lot of detail, a tour guide would be very helpful.
- How to get thereTake the metro line 3 to Liceu, or buses 14, 59, 91, and 120, which stop nearby the Palace.
- Additional tips
- Prices and opening hours to the Gaudí buildings vary, so be sure to check online before you go.
What People Are Saying About Guell Palace
Really impressed with our guide's knowledge. She answered all our questions and really opened our eyes to Barcelona. Highly recommend to do on your first day!
We had a brilliant experience and really enjoyed the tour. Our Tour guide Zoë, an architect that studied at the same University as Gaudi offered us insight and a different perspective on the works, the skills, the genius that is and was Gaudi. Being a former student and appreciating the unique design and character was the key in being a successful tour guide. Highly recommended and would like to do it again in 9 years when the Sagrada Familia will be finished! Let's see!!!!
The tour was really informative and well organised, me and my husband were both really impressed
The guided tour was very informative and at the right chronological order. You get a lot of information about Gaudi life and work. Our Australian guide was great! Fluent English and funny.
Great way to spend the first day and plan where you want to go back to visit and spend more time. The commentary also is helpful so you know about sights you are seeing.
