The building is the star! The exhibition wasn't up to much but it has only opened this year as a museum, perhaps the exhibitions will improve, I hope so.

Very attractive castle-inspired building housing a Gaudi museum. Unless one wants to visit the museum, it's worth about a 5 minutes stop to take a photo.

A medieval edifice designed by Gaudi for his friend and boss Eusebi Güell, a kind of castle-irony, you do not find him on the Sagrada Familia. It was rented to a bank (Caixa Bank) for a fabulous sum of money and it may be free...More

Whe we saw this building I asked "what style is this?" I stood and stared. When I found out it was Gaudi, I understood. It's modernist with gothic and, well, Gaudi! Lovely building to see from the Calle Ancha and side streets. Love those turrets...More

This ornate building currently houses a bank. It has the appearance of being hundreds of years old, but actually it is just over 100 years since it was built. It is situated in the centre of the old town.

This is an unexpected architecturally significant sight to see in Leon, the design is more modern and something you would expect in Barcelona. It is interested to see in Leon set amongst the classical style buildings. The location is really good so it doesn't take...More

The building is just sitting on the edge of old town but the design of the building is classical with a Gaudi twist. The building is not open to the public which is a shame but understandable
