Full description

This guided tour will take you to the first house built by Antoni Gaudí, a work that anticipates modernism in Catalonia and to the fantastic Park Güell, both declared UNESCO World Heritage.

Casa Vicens: Was built as a summer house between 1883 and 1885; it was designed for Manel Vicens i Montaner (1836-1895) a broker-dealer, when Gaudí was 31 years old. It is Gaudí’s first building in Barcelona where he was able to show 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.

After this tour, the guide will accompany you to the bus that will take you to the meeting point of the next tour.

Park Güellwill really surprise you! You will not find any park like this one in the world! This architectural marvel, created in the middle of nature by Antoni Gaudí, was commissioned by Count Güell, who wanted him to design an elegant estate with family homes. Today is a public park and belongs to the city's heritage. It has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site, a landmark that you surely cannot miss in Barcelona!

During the tour, you will be able to find the big staircase dominated by the dragon decorated with a mosaic of ceramic tiles, the Catalan style known as “trencadís”. This dragon is one of the most characteristic images of Barcelona. Written originally Park Güell (in English), the architectural design has the central square bordered by a snaking, “trencadís”. Below the square, the roof is supported by 86 Doric columns, like trees, with paths between them and viaducts on sloping columns: Gaudí's work, like no other, combines nature and architecture

The visit ends in Park Güell.
