Pictures Palau Guell

One of Antoni Gaudi early works is Palau Guell which is a magnificent town house in Barcelona's Raval area very close to La Rambla. Restoration work has been ongoing since 1984 and the building has reopened in 2011 after being completely closed for the seven years to complete the huge job of restore this magnificent building back to its original splendor. The 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 Güell. Eusebi Guell had married Isabel Lópex i Bru in 1871 and Palau Guell was built in 1875 as the family town house in Barcelona.
