We had no idea there was Gaudi outside Barcelona, so what a lovely surprise. A magical house, and well preserved and presented.

This house was designed by Gaudi at quite young age.It is situated in the centre of the old town and has a nie garden. It is worth a visit, which will take no more than one hour.
