Palau Güell Summer Nights
Summer Night Concerts
Palau Güell is celebrating the new edition of the Summer Night Concerts on its gorgeous terrace. This has become a very special and unique event worth seeing in Barcelona! The concerts will take place on the roof, magical and unrepeatable, where for the first time the architect Antoni Gaudí conceived the chimneys as architectural sculptures. You can enjoy various music genres such as jazz by Lester Young, Ben Webster or Billie Holiday; doo wop, new tango or Jamaican jazz. For a perfect accomodation, BCN Apartment Rentals offers you the best luxury apartments in the heart of Barcelona, with the best design, location, security and comfort.
Palau Güell is situated on Nou de la Rambla street, one of the most emblematic in the Raval neighbourhood. It is also considered to be one of the first Art Nouveau buildings in the world, due to its stylised plant-like and organic shapes, inspired by nature. The building also plays masterfully with the concepts of light, space and volume. Palau Güell was built as a family mansion that the industrialist Eusebi Güell ordered to his friend Antoní Gaudí. It is worth noticing that it was the first time Gaudí used trencadís, the mosaic finish made from irregular pieces of broken tiles, that was later to become a hallmark of his work. Also, the Palau Güell´s 20 chimneys, each one different from the rest, serve to represent the ornamental concept that the architect would later apply to other projects such as La Pedrera and Casa Batlló. Declared a Historical Artistic Monument in 1969 and a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984, Palau Güell is a building of great beauty that should be visited by anyone who wants to understand the work of Gaudí.
