Güell Palace (Palau Güell) Tours

star-4.5
92 Reviews
Güell Palace (Palau Güell)
Located in the Raval district and just steps from Las Ramblas, Güell Palace (or more commonly, Palau Güell) is one of Antoni Gaudí’s first major works. Commissioned by his main patron, Eusebi Güell, for his private residence, it’s acclaimed for its innovative use of space, light, and materials and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
 
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.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Palau Güell is a must-see for architecture and Gaudí fans.
  • Guided tours and audio guides are available.
  • Large bags must be placed in lockers.
  • The use of flash, tripods, or selfie sticks is not permitted.
  • The rooftop closes when it is raining.
  • Parts of Palau Güell are accessible to wheelchairs, but the roof, the mezzanine, and the southern terrace are not.
 
How to Get There

Palau Güell is located just west of Las Ramblas and is easily reachable by foot from most of Barcelona’s tourist center. By public transportation, take the metro (L3) to Liceu or bus 14, 59, 91, or 120.
 
When to Get There
Palau Güell is open daily, except for Mondays, December 25 and 26, January 1, and the third week of January. It’s best to book ahead or arrive early to avoid disappointment, as only 185 people are allowed inside at any one time. Free admission is offered the first Sunday of each month.
 
Gaudí and Ceramics

The 20 chimneys on the roof of Palau Güell are all covered with ceramic mosaics. Palau Güell is the first place where Gaudí used trencadís, broken shards of ceramic, to form decorative mosaics, which went on to become one of the characteristic features of his architecture.
Address: Calle Nou de la Rambla 3-5, Barcelona, Catalonia 08001, Spain
Admission: Varies
