Beautifully restored Gaudi first commission which is so fine from conception to detail. It is full of interesting exhibits telling the relationship to the arts and crafts movement and other movements related to modernism. Gaudi is a startling fusion of art, architecture and craft. There...More

Visiting here as a primer to the larger Gaudí masterpieces (ie Battló, La Sagrada Família, Parc Güell, etc) helps to provide a better insight into who Gaudí was and to work he would create. The information behind the house surrounding the development and eventual annexation...More

Casa Vicens is the first house built by Gaudi as a commission for a wealthy families summer home. It’s very interesting with a beautiful facade and a lot of really interesting things to find inside such as papier-mâché tiles, the exquisite smoking room and gaudis...More

Gaudi’s first house. Great restoration. Tour lasts just over an hour and is filled with spectacular details. Definitely up there with the park, the church and the apartment buildings as a must-see.

Great place to see the beginning of Gaudi art and understand his creative process. Loved the exposition of other contemporary houses from other important architects.

Very nice first house built by Gaudy. I passed in the street few years ago before the house was open to the public. It was a real pleasure to visit the Inside. A new point of interest in Barcelona !

the centre, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole
different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many
international artists to this area, resulting in a
wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy
boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the

Casa Vicens - a small private house, restored interior decoration. Casa Batllo- the most beautiful and large in area for inspection! Casa Milà (La Pedrera) - attracts the most with the view of the roof of the building.

In the end I booked ahead a couple of days before hand as there was a 20% discount. We turned up early and they let us in without any problems. It was very quiet. I think in March, if you keep an eye on advance bookings... More
