Palau Güell in Barcelona, Spain

 
 

Palau Güell is Gaudí's lesser known but very important design in Barcelona, an opulent mansion located on Calle Nou de la Rambla. "Palau" means "Palace". Palau Guell is one of the best places to see in Barcelona.

It is constructed as a residence between the years 1886-1888 for Count Eusebi Güell, his most prominent patron. It is the only building that Gaudi finished before his death. During the civil war, the building was used as a police station. Today it serves as a museum.

The building is spectacular with its series of columns, domes, parabolic arches, diverse materials and the use of broken pieces of ceramic tiles on rooftop chimneys.

The building is declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A visit to Palau Güell is one of the best
things to do in Barcelona.
