A long hot walk up to the house but worth it. A lovely house in a beautiful location. It was interesting to see a different building by Antoni Gaudi. My audio machine 'misfired' occasionally but was generally helpful. There was no problem swapping a glass juice instead cava at the end of the tour. The young woman 'guide' was helpful but did not interact very much so her role was limited.
