Pavilions of the Güell Estate

Guided visits to the Pavilions of the Güell Estate

This was the first large-scale commission given to Gaudí by Eusebi Güell.

Antoni Gaudí i Cornet (1852 - 1926) is undoubtedly Barcelona's best-known architect and the city is crammed with buildings that bear testimony to his particular genius. But none of that would have been possible without the support of his main patron, the industrialist Eusebi Güell. Thanks to him, we can now marvel at creations like Park Güell, Palau Güell and the Pavilions of the Güell Estate. If you have not yet visited the latter, don't miss the opportunity to do so on one of the guided tours on offer. You may already be familiar with the dragon that guards the wrought iron gates at the main entrance to the estate, but the site contains plenty of additional attractions. On the tour, you'll see the gatekeeper's lodge, the double-volumed horse stables and learn all about the history of the estate, a large part of which was transferred to the state by the family following Eusebi Güell's death.

Guided visits to the Güell Estate Pavilions take place on Saturdays and Sundays and are available in Catalan, Spanish and English.

Admission costs €5. You pay at the gate though prebooking is required on 932 562 504. Additional information is available at the following link.
