After extensive renovation, this house was opened for visits just before we left Barcelona having worked there for 3 months. Of all Gaudi things I have seen (and I have seen a lot--see memento from Park Guell our grand daughter gave us for Christmas), I...More

It was commissioned by a rich tile manufacturer which accounts for the fantastic tiles - which have been carefully restored or replaced. Only opened in autumn 2017 after an extensive restoration.

16 EUR well worth for Gaudi lovers, beautiful interior that recently underwent complete restoration. In the second floor (in the other half of the house) there's an exhibition trying to put Gaudi and Catalan modernism in the European/global perspective, there's a short, interesting film about...More

Must see if you like Gaudí. Not as grandeur as Casa Batllo or Casa Mila, but not as expensive either. Adult ticket is 16 EUR, totally worth it. You get full access to the house and the roof. No audio tour guide, but friendly staff...More

Gaudí was a young and unknown architect when Manuel Vicens commissioned him to build him a summer residence. This was Gaudí's first opportunity to create a project of this size and, as you can see, with his first house he was already beginning to show his...More

Lucky to visit this newly opened house during my recent trip to Barcelona. A beautiful house with varying styles. Very close to Park Guell, with a direct bus from the park to Casa Vicens. Only a short walk from the main street.

The newly restored and opened Casa Vicens is worth a visit. The house is a fascinating example of Gaudi’s early work. An eclectic mixture of styles. There is also a very interesting interactive exhibition showing models of other architects/ designers .

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
