Spaces

We invite you discover the main rooms of Palau Güell in a visual interactive way. You can visit the central hall on the main floor, the roof with its chimneys, the former stable and coach house and Eusebi Güell's office, and enter the private world of the bedrooms. These are just a few of the areas awaiting you.

Facades

The main and rear facades of Güell Palace, made from a variety of materials (stone, iron, wood and vitrified tile), hide its sumptuous interior.

Rooftop

The roof is one of Güell Palace's magical corners and is outstanding for its twenty chimneys and central spire, which is 15 metres high.

Attic

The attic floor is where the household chores were done; there was a laundry room and a kitchen, along with eleven servants' bedrooms.

Bedroom Floor

This floor was used only by the family and contained the parents' and children’s bedrooms and the bathroom. The whole floor is laid out around an ambulatory, a windowed gallery overlooking the central hall.

Mezzanine

The mezzanine floor, between the main floor and the floor where the bedrooms were located, is where we find the balcony or minstrels' gallery where the musicians sat for concerts.

Main Floor

Once we reach the main floor, the building starts to resemble a palace. The rooms on this floor are on either side of the central hall, which is as high as the building.

Mezzanine Floor

The mezzanine of Güell Palace housed offices. Here we find Eusebi Güell's business office and other rooms used for administration and archiving, such as the library.

Ground Floor

Entrance to the Güell Palace was through double doors from the street. The doorman and coachman services were carried out from the ground floor.

Basement

The basement of Palau Güell was formerly the stable. Access was from the ground floor via two entrances: a gentle ramp which the horses went up and down and a steep cobbled spiral ramp which the people used.
