Details

In this guided tour you will discover the first house designed and built by Antoni Gaudí, a house with an unusual oriental and Mudejar aroma, covered with spectacular green and white tiles. This building is the prelude to Gaudi’s body of work and hints at the future Art Nouveau (Modernisme) in Catalonia.

Casa Vicens was built as a summer house between 1883 and 1888. It was designed by the 31-year-old Gaudí for Manel Vicens i Montaner (1836-1895), a broker-dealer. It is Gaudí’s first building in Barcelona where he was able to display his enormous talent.

In Casa Vicens, Gaudí recreated the figurative worlds that were fashionable at the time, but in a highly personal way. The house was built following Catalonia's construction traditions, which the architect interpreted in unexpected ways, while he also incorporated decorative and symbolic elements, also in his highly personal way. As a whole, it heralds and displays the creative freedom that would become the trademark of his entire future oeuvre.

In addition to being one of the starting points of Gaudí’s career, the architect created an innovative and original work in Casa Vicens, which is different to anything that had been built in Catalonia before it. Casa Vicens became one of the first examples of the aesthetic renewal of art and architecture which was taking place all around Europe in the late 19th century.
It is the seventh building in Barcelona listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the last to be opened to the public.

The visit ends at Casa Vicens. Staying on your own in the quiet neighborhood of Gracia which is well connected with public transport.
