Barcelona, a photo a day

Palau Guell


I was asked about the spires on the header of this blog. No, they are not part of a church, they are on the roof of a private house, the Palau Guell, or Guell Palace. A private house with a difference, as it was built for Eusebi Guell by his good friend Antonio Gaudi.
Here is the entrance:

Now, the interior of the house is very dark and gloomy, hard to get a good shot without a flash or a tripod (forbidden). Here is what I could manage…

It gets a little lighter on the upper floors.

Many more of those spires on the roof, with a fantastic view over the old town.

  6. We toured several buildings by Gaudi in Barcelona, but not this one. We will have to come back.
