Casa Vicens Tours

star-4
3 reviews
Casa Vicens
Opened to the public for the first time in 2017, Casa Vicens is Antoni Gaudí’s original modernist masterpiece and the first house he ever designed. Built in Barcelona in the 1880s for Manel Vicens i Montaner, this UNESCO World Heritage Site sets the tone for the rest of Gaudi’s architecture, created during Europe’s late 19th century and early 20th century Art Nouveau period.
 
The Basics
Turned into a museum after restoration work and visitor-friendly updates, Casa Vicens features two floors of the Vicens family’s sitting rooms, dining rooms, and bedrooms; a top floor space with a permanent collection depicting the house’s history and cultural context; a rooftop; a basement housing the La Capell specialty store and bookshop; and a garden. An admission ticket allows you to explore the house at your own pace, while guided tours limited to 10 people are available if you wish to explore with a tour guide for a more in-depth visit. Get the full Gaudí experience with a combo tour of Casa Vicens and other notable Gaudí attractions, such as Basilica of the Sagrada Familia and Park Güell.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Casa Vicens is wheelchair accessible, and a separate tour is available for those with reduced mobility.
  • The house features a café and gift shop.
  • Lockers, stroller storage, and a cloakroom are available.
 
How to Get There
Casa Vicens is located in the Gràcia District of Barcelona, adjacent to the Eixample District, which is home to Gaudí’s Casa Milà (La Pedrera) and Casa Batlló. The closest metro station is Fontana. From there, it’s a 1.2-mile (2-kilometer) walk north to Park Güell, another major Gaudí attraction, making it easy to visit both.
 
When to Get There
The house is open daily, with the exception of certain holidays. Tickets are timed, so you’ll choose your desired entrance time when booking.
 
Barcelona’s Gràcia District
If you’d like to get to know the Gràcia neighborhood where Casa Vicens is located, book a walking or scooter tour with a guide to show you around this artsy, bohemian barrio (neighborhood). Its narrow streets are home to cafés and a number of foreign restaurants, plazas such as Plaça de Sol, and a mix of both hip young professionals and elderly residents.
Address: Carrer de les Carolines, 24, Barcelona, Catalonia 08012, Spain
Hours: Open daily, 10am - 8pm (doors close at 7pm). Closed 25 Dec, 1 and 6 of Jan.
