It's all of tiles and mosaic, very colourful. Take the metro to Fontana station (green line) to get there.
Off the beaten track and not open to the public as it's a private house but the ceramics on the exterior are truly impressive and different to the other Gaudi houses in the city.
I absolutely love Gaudi but this building is pretty ugly! If you are in the neighbourhood, great, but if not, make the effort to go elsewhere. I have given it a one star to compensate for the overstated, halo effect ratings. I'd give it a two and a half.
One of Gaudi's lesser known, but I feel underrated masterpieces. Brilliant Morrocan / Islamic style. Unfortunately could not get a glimpse inside, as it is a private residence. The ppl who live here have no idea how lucky they are!

The Casa Vicens is an early Gaudi masterwork, inspired by Moorish architecture and fully decorated with tiles. Although the building doesn't have curves, Gaudi masterfully manages to create a playful facade. Can't be visited inside.
