Palau Güell

The first major work of Gaudí that was commissioned by Eusebi Güell in 1885, Palau Güell marks not only the beginning of the friendship of Barcelona's two most famous sons, but also marks the first of many splendid architectural works in Gaudí's portfolio. Compared to his later works, Palau Güell is rather muted, almost sober, but still has plenty of typically Gaudí-like designs and utilitarian solutions. From stables in the basement to colourful chimneys on the roof, catenary arches, twisted ceilings, glass mosaics, shutters and skylights playing with natural light point to Gaudí's unique talent of making the most out of every room and every space.

The palace was built specifically for Señor Eusebi himself as his private residence, where he moved with his family after its completion in late 1880s. For the longest time, Palau Güell was completely shut down for renovations. The main hall, the master bedrooms, the servants' rooms, the famous roof, the stables had all been closed... but not anymore! Although the roof terrace sometimes closes during rainy weather, the opportunity to visit the palace is the one not to be missed. Taking pictures is allowed inside.
