Casa Vicens, Barcelona
(4/5 based on 180+ 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.

  • Gaudi was incredable artist and we enjoyed all his works! The Vicens wasn't an exception! Barcelona would be much less impressive without Gaudi! 
  • House gaudy early works (1883-1888), tile manufacturing Manual Vicens said (died 1885). Reading through word of mouth, because the private homes not only in appearance under the thinking went. Going straight on Gran de Gracia, right out of the Fontana station on the No. 3 line, at Carollwnes turn left a little to the right. On sheet is currently under construction, so the breakfast was outstanding just a little side street and floral tiles.

  • I stopped by on my way to the Park Güell. Appearance seen only from not because not many people did. The design is pretty novel. I think it is slightly uphill, but underground a bit down in the effort, the visit is also good. Those who want to go to the so called tourist spots, but I think anyone who likes building may be de向kanai plain.

  • 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
