Top ways to experience Casa Vicens
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Gracia
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from 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 vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theatre that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.

It is a must see place and it’s presented excellently. And there’s an employee named Julien at the front door, he was very hospitable and helpful.

Casa Vicens - well worth a visit!
Oct 2021
Loved my visit to Casa Vicens. The audio guide was great and the staff were friendly and helpful. This is a less visited Gaudi home, but it is certainly worth the visit! you will not have to fight the crowds as in Casa Batllo and La Sagrada Familia.

Great experience
Nov 2021 • Couples
I just loved it. It's incredibly beautiful, really worth visiting. Staff was lovely and helpful. The only problem was that you can't access Wi-Fi outside of the house so it's not easy to use the audioguide in the garden if you don't have personal mobile data but we made it work.

Beautiful and informative!
Oct 2021
Enjoyed the property very much! Amazingly well maintained and appreciated the exhibit area with the models dating from various times. Crowd was not too bad as we were there late October. Only issue was with wifi reception on phone to use audio guide. Had trouble in many areas outside and inside so had to keep switching to read the transcript rather than hear audio

Amazing accessible tohr
Nov 2021 • Couples
This building is amazing with bold colours and surprising architectural elements around every corner. We loved the sounds of the garden from inside. My husband was in a wheelchair and the house is entirely accessible other than one step onto the roof. Audio guide and supplemental videos are quality and informative. Loved this tour!

It was a great pleasure to visit this beautiful house on a sunny autumn day. The colours are spectacular and the organisation of the house is thought provoking.
It is definitely worth a visit.

Casa Vicens - Gaudí Gem without the crowds
Oct 2021 • Solo
Once you’ve visited La Sagrada Familia & Casa Batllo, get away from the crowds and bask in the nature and peace that Gaudí created in Casa Vicens! The covered balcony with the water fountain is not to be missed!

A beautiful house
Oct 2021
Although this was Gaudi’s first major commission, it shows all the signs of his genius. We enjoyed our visit immensely, and highly recommend a visit to this beautiful house.
