From the Monument of Columbus, you’ll enter the colourful boulevard known as La Rambla, and walk to Palau Güell (the Güell Palace). This wonderfully unique mansion was designed by Antoni Gaudi in 1888, for the Catalan industrial tycoon Eusebi Güell.
Impressed by the designs of Antoni Gaudi, Eusebi Güell requested that he build him a mansion that would set him apart from his neighbours. Palau Güell is the result of this collaboration and is one of Gaudi’s first projects.
Upon arrival, you’ll notice the grand iron gates that allowed visitors to enter by horse-drawn carriage. Once inside you’ll be given an audio guide, to allow you to explore the house independently. Discover the different rooms which are located over 5 floors, each one a treasure trove of design in architecture.
Afterwards, join your guide on a walking tour of the Gothic Quarter; the centre of the old city. View Plaça Nova with its twin semi-circular towers of the Roman walls, before an exterior visit of the Cathedral, a Gothic structure dating from the 14th and 15th centuries. Enjoy some free time for shopping before rejoining your coach back to the ship.
