Casa Vicens, Barcelona

(4/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
On your way to visit the better known Park Güell, designed by Anroni Gaudí, take a detour to see Casa Vicens, one of his first notable works. This house, commissioned in the 1880s, joined much of Gaudi’s other work on the UNESCO World Heritage list in 2005. Walk around the asymmetrical exterior and note the Moorish influences evident in the colorful tiles, turrets, and buttresses. Look for the playful details that Gaudí included and admire the ornate sculptural work. Though the house is a private residence and not open to the public, if you're lucky enough to be in Barcelona on Saint Rita’s Day, (May 22) when the house is opened to “neighbors and citizens,” you might just get a peek inside. Add Casa Vicens and other attractions to your Barcelona trip itinerary using our Barcelona holiday planner.

  • 不对外开放。距离古埃尔公园不远,这座建筑很多时候会被游客所忽略和遗忘,作为高迪的第一座房屋作品,即使只是远远地望一眼,他那源自棕榈树灵感的外部栏杆,美观而精致,也把内部的屋子遮了个严严实实。 这栋房子的主人是陶瓷商人马努艾尔•文森,屋主在1878年邀请当时才刚刚毕业的高迪设计一栋夏天要住的房子,初出茅庐的高迪当然非常兴奋,立刻答应下来。文森之家从1883年开始动工,耗时5年完成。屋子上贴满了彩色陶...  more »
  • Still little to see as majority of the building is covered with scaffolding. You can see some ceramics from one side of the villa. It says 'coming soon' :)  more »
  • Gaudí early work on a cover is currently in repair. Appearance itself is somehow knows for its atmosphere. After the repair go to separately.

  • Off the beaten path, but for anyone that follows the work of Antoni Gaudí a must see. This is a private residence so there is no access to the interior unless you are lucky enough to know one of the tenants. On the outside you will see his signature natural form metal work in the wrought iron fence. But the architectural style is very different from his other works in that it has a blend of Mediterranean influences with beautiful tile and brick work. A short walk from the Fontana Metro stop.
  • Currently being repaired / refurbished. Beautiful building, but cannot see majority of it at the moment due to scaffolding.
  • Unfortunately closed in october 2016. The casa is being restored. Nonetheless, it seams to be a great place.
  • An amazing but little known gaudi building in a quiet street. Now underconstruction..
  • This building is currently.closed for renovation until the autumn of 2016. At least that is what the sign said on June 9, 2016
