Casa Vicens is one of the masterpieces of Antoni Gaudí, one of the most influential architects in the history of modern architecture. Built between 1883 and 1888, Casa Vicens is one of Gaudí's first works and one of the most emblematic of his modernist style.

Located in the Gracia neighborhood of Barcelona, Casa Vicens was designed as a summer residence for the Vicens family. The house stands out for its innovative mix of architectural styles, which include elements of Islamic art, Gothic and Catalan modernism.

The façade of the house is covered with ceramics, a decorative technique that Gaudí used in many of his works. The interior patios are decorated with glass and ceramic mosaics, and the house has a series of towers and balconies that give it the air of a medieval castle.

The interior of Casa Vicens is equally impressive, with exquisite decoration and a distribution of spaces designed to maximize light and natural ventilation. The house has an impressive tea room, a library and several rooms decorated with floral and plant motifs.

In 2005, Casa Vicens was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, underlining its importance as one of the masterpieces of modern architecture. Today, the house is a popular tourist destination and an important cultural center in the city of Barcelona, attracting visitors from all over the world interested in the work of Gaudí and Catalan modernism.

Do not miss the opportunity to discover the origin of Gaudí.
