Description

Architectural landmark of Gaudi design

Palau Güell commissioned architect Antonio Gaudi to design a new house he wanted built in Barcelona, in Nou de la Rambla street. As one of the few Gaudi sites that has seen little modification since its completion in 1918, you are able to see a more impacting effect of Gaudi’s work at Güell’s Place.

Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984, Palau Güell is a testimony to Gaudi’s contribution and influence on building techniques and design forms in the modernisme movement of the early 20th century. The creative character of Palau Güell can be seen from the street. For a closer view, there are tours available during some times of the year.
