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
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
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.
They are different. I have visited Casa Battlo and a number of Gaudi's other works in the past (and the works of other Catalan modernista masters like Puig i Cadafalch, Domenech i Montaner). Many of their works are... More
They are different. I have visited Casa Battlo and a number of Gaudi's other works in the past (and the works of other Catalan modernista masters like Puig i Cadafalch, Domenech i Montaner). Many of their works are masterpieces in different ways. The earlier works may have different elements of design/styles/techniques that were later further developed in other works.
If your friends are first timers to Catalan modernista architecture or Gaudi's works, maybe take them to see Casa Battlo first, if you/they have very little time. I guess you have also seen Sagrada Familia.
If you have a bit more time, try visiting Recinte Modernista San Pau (former hospital complex designed by Domenech i Montaner). It will blow your mind.
You can also look up information/photos on the internet of the places you have in mind first, and pick the ones you like to go.

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 online, you can take a chance. We really enjoyed our visit to a very unusual house. We didn’t take a tour but had an introduction from an English speaking guide, and could have asked questions from staff in the house.
