21 April sees the first edition of a new guided tour to Antoni Gaudí’s building on Carrer Nou de la Rambla.
On the third Saturday of every month, a new guided tour going under the name The Secret Palau Güell takes visitors to some of the places in the building that are normally kept hidden from the general public and allows them to catch a glimpse of the everyday life of the family that used to live there.
The new tour will be operational from 21 April and will take place in the evening. From 8.30pm to 10pm there will be guided tours in Catalan and English, and from 8.45pm to 10.15pm the tours will be in Spanish and French. Eusebi Güell’s office and the chapel in the central hall are just some of the places on the tour, and participants will also be able to listen to an organ from the balcony and contemplate the illuminated roof. Children under 10 years of age are not allowed on the tour for safety reasons and the management at Palau Güell also point out that there are places on the tour that may present problems for people with reduced mobility.
The building was one of the first commissions that the industrialist entrusted to Gaudí and was constructed from 1886 to 1890. It stands out for its functionality, being adapted to the needs of the private life of the family and to their intense social and cultural life.
