    Palau de Güell

    Palau de Güell is Gaudi's first big building in the centre of Barcelona. It is located in a very small street, so it is dificult to take a good look at the facade. The house was built for Eusebi Güell and nowadays it is opened for the public. My favourite part of the house is the roof (which is also the only part of the house you are allowed to take pictures). The roof has really beautiful mosaique chimney's in all forms and colours.

    PALAU GUELLPalau Guell...It is another work of Gaudi which is one of the few Modernista buildings on La Rambla. The palace was built by Eusebi Guell as an extension of family residence in nearby Rambla. Guell commissioned the architect Antoni Gaudi to design the building. The building is a great mixture of Islamic, Gothic and Art Nouveau styles. The ceiling ornamentation in the first floor is just stunning. Unfortunately we were not allowed to take pictures inside the building.
