Palau Güell

Palau Güell ( The Güell Palace ) is an spectacular building located in the historical center , next to Las Ramblas.

It was the residence of the The Güell López family, owned by Gaudi's main comissioner, Count Eusebi Güell. 

The building designed by Antoni Gaudí is one of the first works of the architect in the city.

Stands out for its innovative conception of architectural space and light , as well as the different materials used for its construction : stone, wood, wrought iron , ceramic, glass ... quality materials providing the building a very unique and harmonious ambient.

The terrace is one of the most significant areas of the Palau Guell, known for its twenty chimneys and the central spire , 15 meters high, right on top of the dome of the central hall, is covered by original stone wastes.

More than chimneys are true sculptures, their structures and forms are sextremely varied , so are functional and artistic elements simultaneously.

The Palace has been declared  World Heritage Site by Unesco . You can visit its interior and is , like all other works of Gaudí , absolutely fascinating both inside and outside.
