  Palau Güell on Carrer Nou de la Rambla
by seamandrew
 
 

In the first stretch of Carrer Nou de la Rambla is the Palau Güell . It was built by no other than Gaudi himself between 1885 and 1889 as the home of his patron, Count Güell. With this structure, the architect embarked on a period of fertile creativity. Here, Gothic inspiration alternates with elements of Arabic influence. The building is structured around an enormous salon, from which a conical roof covered in pieces of tiling emerges to preside over an unusual landscape of purposely placed battelements, balustrades, and unusually shaped chimneys.

Address: Carrer Nou de la Rambla 3-5
Directions: On Carrer Nou de la Rambla just off of La Rambla.
