Even there are many people who do not know Palau Güell and do not visit it. It’s a real shame, because it is beautiful building designed by Gaudí and it is located in the city center.
The building stood out for its innovative conception of space and light. Also, one of the main features of the Palau Güell is that it was one of the first important works commissioned Gaudí. Moreover, it is a superb example of domestic architecture. Eusebi Güell (industrial, political and patron) ordered this peculiar urban palace to Gaudí because he wanted an extension of their family located in La Rambla of Barcelona.
The most striking part is the Güell Palace and its rooftop terrace, quite striking, with outstanding 14 fireplaces. It also stresses the high needle-shaped lantern which is the outside shot of the dome of the central hall, also made of ceramic and topped with a weathervane lightning rod-iron, containing the compass rose, a bat and a Greek cross.
On the roof of Palau Güell was where I first Antoni Gaudí chimneys designed as sculptural elements, sinuous forms, and some of them coated using the technique of “Trencadís”.
