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.

Excellent Experience
May 2021 • Couples
We loved the visit. The house is amazing, another evidence that Gaudí was a genious able to break the rules and create awesome spaces. The audioguide is very user friendly and there are several lenguages to choose. A little Coffee shop to close the visit in the lovely backyard is the final jewel to spend a beautiful afternoon. Totally recommended!

Great immersive experience into Gaudi's first architectural project
May 2021
The audioguide provided interesting info about every space of the house, which, btw, is a fantastic piece of architecture provided it was the first grand project of Gaudi's. Make sure you bring some earphones (I'm not sure if they have any to give you). The dessert at the end was delicious as well.

A must in Barcelona!

It was great to be at Gaudi’s first house, where his style was already clearly marked and visible in the architecture. This site is a must for any Gaudi admirers out there!

a well-spent afternoon :)
Mar 2021
It was a very beautiful building reflecting many aspects of Gaudi style. We enjoyed a lot having a visit with the audioguide which was easy to use and follow through our own mobile phones. Everybody was very helpful and friendly. Well, the house was breath-taking with the details and also knowing where to look at and understanding what we are looking at was amazing thanks to the audioguide. It was worth to speand our money and time here. We also enjoyed a lot the audiovisual offered in 3 languages: Catalan, Spanish and English. Seeing the old pictures of Barcelona and fascnating grow of the city into a world city was great. We are totally amazed by our tour as big lovers of Antoni Gaudi architecture.

A glimpse into modernist Barcelona
Jan 2021
An exquisitely restored modernist home. A plunge into that golden era when Barcelona was home of an entrepeneurial bourgeosie, eager to show their success through luxury dwellings like that.
