Charming visit, not crowded, need phone for audio guide
Well worth it to see the earliest Gaudi work which was very interesting but WiFi a little spotty in places (needed to access the online audio guide). Remember to bring your own earphones. Visited Mercat de Libertad afterwards and sat in nearby square for a drink in the late Oct sunshine. Lovely.

The interior was really decorative and cool. The upper half is a museum and has some good history of the house.

A wonderful house full of nice and useful details. The inside as well as the outside of the house are completely connected with nature. It's worth visiting it.

The visit was worth the money and the time, and I would absolutely recommend it! The location of the house is easily accessible. We visited around 11am, and there were not a lot of visitors. There were temporary and permanent exhibition inside the house. For me one of the highlights was the film they showed about the renovation of the house. Really makes you appreciate the beautiful view and the design as well as the execution.

Very interesting to see Gaudi's first house after seeing his later work. It was very helpful to be able to enter any time during the day.

Seeing the rooms that Gaudí designed was inspirational. We very much enjoyed our visit looking at the original rooms and we learnt a lot from watching the film/video on the 2nd floor, it was very informative for a quick synopsis of 19th/20th century Barcelona history of building. We also enjoyed reading about the other influential architects around at that time, like our own William Morris. The interactive computer displays were good. We very much appreciated being able to read and listen in English. Thank you for a great visit.
