Palau Güell

The life of the Güell family through their palaces

The tour, “Els Güell a la Rambla. Quatre palau connectats” (The Güell family on the Rambla. Four connected palaces), will take you on a journey through the life of one of the most influential families in the Modernisme period.

Eusebi Güell i Bacigalupi was a Catalan businessman and patron of the arts who became one of the most affluent people in the country at the beginning of the twentieth century. Many of the palaces dotted around the Rambla, one of the most prized areas at the time, belonged to him and his family. To discover more about what his life was like and why he invested so much of his money as a patron to great architects, you can sign up for the tour organised by Palau Güell: “The Güell family on the Rambla. Four connected palaces”. The starting point is at Palau Moja, which was home to Antonio López y López, Marquess of Comillas and the father of Eusebi’s wife Isabel López Bro. The tour will then move to Palau Fonollar, which Güell purchased to have as his residence after marrying Isabel. You’ll then continue on down the Rambla until Casa Güell, which is where Eusebi’s father, Joan Güell i Ferrer, lived. The last stop on the tour is Palau Güell, where the family lived, which is an iconic piece in Antoni Gaudí’s oeuvre.

“The Güell family on the Rambla. Four connected palaces” will run on the third Sunday of each month, from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm, except in July, August and September. The meeting point for the group is in front of Palau Moja, on Carrer de Portaferrissa, which is where the tour will start.

Taking part in this activity will cost €15. You can book your places on the Palau Güell website.
