Palau Güell

Discover the secret side of Palau Güell

We'll wander through hidden parts of Gaudí's work that are normally closed to the public.

Palau Güell was one of architect Antoni Gaudí's first important commissions, at the very beginning of his career. Eusebi Güell, a well-known patron, politician and businessman of the time, wanted the artist, not yet very well-known, to build him this peculiar urban palace as an extension of the family home on La Rambla in Barcelona. Other important architectural works later came about as a result of this relationship, such as Park Güell and Colònia Güell. Although loads of people visit the Palau every day, some areas are off limits to the public for various reasons. Now, the Barcelona Provincial Council has decided to open up these hidden areas to small groups, with a guided tour called 'The Secret Palau Güell'. Through this tour, we will get a look at the history and every-day life of the patron's family. We'll visit Eusebi Güell's office, the chapel in the Central hall, the basement, listen to the organ from the side gallery, take a secret service staircase and enjoy the view from the rooftop.

These guided tours will be offered the third Saturday of the month, except 18 May. Tours are available in Catalan, English, Spanish and French at different times, depending on the month you choose. This activity visits areas that are more difficult to access, so no children under 10 are allowed.

The guided tour costs €20. You can get your tickets on the Palau Güell website.
