Pictures Palau Guell

The fabulous Palau Guell  house is by Barcelona's famous architect Antoni Gaudi. It is a magnificent town house in Barcelona's Raval area and very close to La Rambla street. The building reopened in 2011 after being completely closed for the seven years to complete the huge job of restoring this magnificent building back to its original splendor.

The Palau Guell house was commissioned by leading industrialist Eusebi Güell, who was estimated to be one of the 25 richest men in the world at the time. Eusebi Guell had married Isabel Lópex i Bru in 1871 and Palau Guell was built in 1875 as the Guell family town house in Barcelona.
