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.

Highly recommended!

An incredibly beautiful building, you should definitely take a guided tour or use an audio guide. The route around the house is very conveniently and clearly organized. It is better to buy tickets in advance.

Highly recommended place to see in Barcelona
Oct 2021
My daughter and I visited Casa Vicens and it was indeed an excellent experience to se Gaudis architecture not least because of the wonderfully friendly and highly qualified staff who told us about Gaudis architecture and its significance for modernism while showing us the building.
We can highly recommend this place if you are visiting Barcelona

I did the free visit with the audioguide you can download on your phone. it was great because you can do it at your own rhythm and the guide on your phone is great.
The house is incredible, the last floor with the interactive tablets was super cool too.

Magnificent building. A fusion of styles, including Moorish. Gaudi was either a genius or crazy. Or high.

Not as amazing as Casa Batllo
Oct 2021 • Couples
I would give it 4.5 stars if I could. It seemed a little more crowded and not as specific on the audiotour as Casa Batllo was. It was still very nice, and good to see a different Gaudi house.

Amazing place perfectly curated!!!
Sep 2021 • Friends
Unexpected beauty in the middle of a crowded neighbourhood, the first house of gaudi is as beautiful as the others but more special because it’s not so well known.
The guided tour is clear engaging and leave you freedom in choosing your rhythm.
Definitely a must see!

Beautiful Gaudi house in garden setting!
Sep 2021 • Couples
Gorgeous house with garden setting, well interpreted by the audio guide and additional displays on the attic floor. Gaudi's first house design is already a masterpiece! You can tour at your own pace with the audio guide.

Wow! Totally worth a visit! It is just amazing
Only reason I did rate 5 was because the audio guide that you download it wasn’t working properly because if poor wifi coverage. Rather than that Casa Vicens is one of the most beautiful piece of art of Gaudi, it’s just amazing!!!

An absolute jewel in the city of Barcelona. Being Gaudi's first house, it is very different from the more popular Casa Batlo in style, but this makes it an even better experience. Would 100 percent reccomend. We went there by foot, and the neighbouring houses are also lovely. At the end of the visit we were also gifted a delicious -and very fulfilling- cake: such a great memory!
