Palau Güell

The building was finished in 1890. It stands out for its conception of space and light. It was the private residence of Gaudí’s patron, Count Güell. The Palau Güell has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

There are several open days throughout the year: the first Sunday of each month, May 21st, April 23rd, the Museum Night, September 11th and 24th, and December 15th. Tickets are delivered in two shifts until they are sold out.


Park Güell

Eusebi Güell commissioned Gaudí to conduct a full urbanisation of the old village of Gràcia. Finally, only two houses were built, one of which is currently the Gaudí House-Museum. Gaudí respected the existing vegetation and introduced Mediterranean plants with low water demand. The park became a private garden, which after the death of Güell was offered by his heirs to the City Council of Barcelona, becoming a public park declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

We recommend you buy a ticket online, ensuring your access. With the entry you can access the Bus Güell for free. It is a shuttle that goes from the Alfons X underground stop to the Park Güell.

Güell Pavilions

It was the first order to Gaudí from who would prove to be his great patron, Eusebi Güell. Gaudí redesigned the garden of the leisure estate of the Güell family, built the wrought iron gate in the shape of a dragon and built two pavilions, one, the house of the doorman and the other, the stables.

Calvet House

The manufacturer Pere Màrtir Calvet commissioned Antoni Gaudí to build the Calvet House. His business occupied the basement and the ground floor, and the upper floors were used for housing.

In 1900, the house won the prize for the best house of the year by the Barcelona City Council. Currently, the ground floor houses a restaurant.
