    This house hasn't been open to the public for very long. It is an audio guided tour but it is timed. The first 20 minutes or so are spent learning about Saint George through various videos that are a ...  more »

    Beautiful House, opened recently. The visit includes the audioguide you accompanied between the different rooms. Highly interactive experience in which the viewer experiences firsthand the legend of Sant Jordi. The tour ends on the roof, reached by a lift. Recommended!!

    We took was the anniversary and were 2 for 1 tickets, so we took the opportunity to take the visit (€10 /px) House and the terrace with live music (€12.5 /px). The visit to the House is not nothing recommendable, only see a floor, adapted to show the history of San Jorge (that not only is the patron of Catalonia, but the communities belonging to the Crown of ARAGON - not Catalan-Aragonese, that never existed-) and little more, nothing of modernist rooms as you can see in the Pedrera or Batlló House. The terrace was the most interesting and especially for live music and dancing. Beverages included in l input is water, glass of champagne, wine, soft drink. Were ice-free at 21 h approx. drink a coca cola hot eye... in the entry also included pairing (for the anniversary? We do not know). Neither had many tables to be... Certainly by the price which is worth everything without the offer is not worth, and offering stays right.

  • The tour is fantastic. The legend of Sant Jordi is played out as you go through the rooms. Then you get the history of the building, the architect, etc. The tour continues on the roof with more visuals in the towers. The shop has as some beautiful items, and the coffee in the bar is the best I've tasted during my visit to the city
  • Just see its from the outside, looks interesting. They ticket cost 12€
  • A Modernista house (actually one building with multiple apartments and shops), that has opened in half 2016. Not yet known, so very few visitors, but certainly worth a visit.
  • lesser known barcelona place. one of the top three architects in Barcelona.
  • While the bulding is wonderful from the outside the tour of the interior is a waste your money! We started off with a guided visit of the outside when a guid explained a history of the house, which was quite interesting (although due to a noise from the street it was hard to hear). Then you enter inside and that's where you get dissapointed. The part of the house you get to visit have almost no signs of being from the modernist period, just white walls. Also you get to see a bad film about the St George's legend (screened in parts in different rooms, which you can't escape once you've started) and enter terrace (which is just a regular terrace). We felt ripped-off. Definately not worth the money you have to pay. Maybe if it was half price it could be considered, for the part you spend with a guide. There are other modernist houses you can visit in Barcelona which actually still have the modernist features you can admire once you enter inside.

Where to stay in Barcelona

Because the city's metro system makes traveling from area to area relatively painless, you have more flexibility in choosing a place to stay. Barceloneta, the neighborhood surrounding the city beach is somewhat removed from the city center, making its hotels popular with families. Only a 15-minute walk from the center, Barceloneta has a more laid-back beach atmosphere but still offers several restaurants and entertainment options. Farther away from the beach and closer to the city center, El Born is a charming neighborhood well-known for its restaurants and lively bar scene. Eixample is also popular as it is more central and home to some of the city's best shopping and tourist sites, including La Sagrada Familia. For a more traditional experience, consider staying in the Gothic Quarter, the heart of Old Barcelona. This picturesque neighborhood boasts a tight network of historical architecture with boutique hotels and traditional restaurants.
