We had heard that this house, not long open to the public, was worth seeing. It turned out to be truly great. It was Gaudi's first home commission and the degree to which original features were preserved - given that this was a private home...More

Opened to the public relatively recently, Casa Vicens is well worth the visit. Pictures in front of numerous mosaic columns are a must.

Great place to visit if you like Gaudí ‘s architecture. No crowds when I visited (Sunday afternoon in September). Buy tickets online with time slot reserved. The staff is very dedicated and you will feel as if you’ve booked a private tour.

This is the first house Gaudí have created and during all the time there were 3 families living there. It is so different from the other masterpieces of the great architect and I’m absolutely in love with little details. We went at around 6.30 and...More

Just opened in November 2017 after a full restoration. Well done and explains many things about Gaudi as his first house design and execution in BCN. Well worth the effort to visit. Can be combined with Sant Pau or Sagrada Familia easily.

this is a new addition to the tourist circuit and was a residence Gaudi designed for a client. It includes all his naturalism motifs and is nice to wander around . we went on a Monday for half price entry.

We loved that we could take pictures freely without escaping peoples cameras and elbows, so civilized. Plus, you get to see his first home creation and it's simply beautiful. Very informative film that gives a nice history of home, family and Gaudi, highly recommend. If...More

This mansion is amazing. It was the first house of the kind Gaudi got to build yet for some reason it is overshadowed by his more famous projects like la Pedrera and casa Batlló when it comes to tourist attractions. That is a pity, because...More

It had opened since last November and still not many tourists go to this place. I love this casa, it reflects the early work of Guadi and his creativity to use up all kinds of brick to build up an extraordinary house. You need to...More

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

In the end I booked ahead a couple of days before hand as there was a 20% discount. We turned up early and they let us in without any problems. It was very quiet. I think in March, if you keep an eye on advance bookings... More
