Palau Güell

A Rich industrial Family named Guëll asked Gaudi to built this Palace. They lived all their life in the Palace.

 

The Guell Palace " Palau Güell" in catalan, was constructed in 1888 by Antoni Gaudi.In the lobby of the Palace, the light that falls through the windows is subdued by three huge parabolic arches formed by grey, smoothly polished stone pillars. The towering arches create the impression of a Gothic window; but the windows which Gaudi employed in Guell's palace are rectangular - in other words, serve as a counterpoint to the lines of the arches. These arches also reveal the first signs of his worries with Art Nouveau. The Art Nouveau elements of the entrance gate were also repeated inside the building. For one thing, there are lavish decorations on the pillars, of which there are a considerable number : from the thick, supporting, mushroom-shaped polished grey pillars made of snake-eye stone excavated from a quarry in the Pyrenees.

 

A hall spanning three floors forms the center of the building. It replaces, as it were, the normal inner courtyard, but at the same time creates the impression that one is standing in a huge Baroque church. This room is covered by a cupola in which Gaudi put numerous round holes. The twisted legs of the table recur in the building itself, namely, on the roof.

*Good to Know: From 1st January 2016  Palau Güell will open its doors for free every first Sunday of the month.

  2. A Must See! - JAH26 (17 Dec 2011 - 09:15)

    My husband and I honeymooned in Barcelona in Sept 2011 and we stumbled across this Gaudi masterpiece. It just recently opened this year and a MUST SEE. We enjoyed it more than any of the other Gaudi sites (except for La Sagrada Familia). It is 100% open!

  3. PALAU GUELL - L. DEGRYSE (8 Dec 2011 - 18:30)

    A couper le souffle. Une merveille. Le genie de Gaudi, dans toute sa spendeur, deja. Ce palais á lui seul vaut de se rendre á Barcelona. En un mot comme en 100 : FABULEUX.
