From 10am to 4pm on September 30 and 1 October, and 7 and 8 October 2023, there will be free admission to the Güell Pavilions (Av. Pedralbes, 7, Barcelona), designed by Antoni Gaudí, as part of the celebrations for Festival of Les Corts neighborhood.
In 1883, Eusebi Güell wanted to enlarge the vast estate that his father had purchased some years earlier in the area of Pedralbes and Gaudí was commissioned for some of the refurbishment works (1884-1887) that were directed by Joan Martorell. Gaudí designed the garden and entrance pavilions to the estate along the track (today’s Passeig Manuel Girona) that led from the road to Sarrià. At the end of the 19th century, the estate contained the summer house of the Güell family and the arable land that it farmed. The former stables, coach-house and porter’s lodge are part of the heritage of the University of Barcelona, which in 2014 lent the space to Barcelona’s Municipal Institute for Urban Landscape until 2024, with the aim of opening it to the public and commencing with its restoration. The site is currently provisionally closed until an opening date is set for daily public visits in the near future.
