An architectural work of art by catalan genius architect Gaudí. An impressive palace open for visits. Just meters away from my flat.
The Palau Güell is one of the first important commissions that Gaudí received at the beginning of his career. Eusebi Güell (industrialist, politician and patron) wanted Gaudí to build this peculiar urban palace as an extension of the family home he had on the Rambla de Barcelona.
