  • €13.5 for an audio-guided visit, to go to the tallest tower the ticket is €15. They give you a headphones and a player which triggers a corresponding audio recording when you enter a room. The tour starts with a fairy tale about Saint George, a knight who defeated a dragon to save a princess. In Catalonia, this story is a symbol of the Catalonia independence movement. The story audio and visual tracks are well done. After the knight/dragon story you'll see photos and hear stories about the building itself and about the architect, including his political life. I found this tour overall worthy of spending time and money.
  • Nice interactive museum worth visiting. First exposition tells you about the dragon legend with exiting movie shown on the walls of the museum along your way. Then it switches to the historical and architectural peculiarities of the place. And of course a roof view with all the towers on top is great!
