Made in modernist style with oriental flavor, it was built between 1883 and 1885 and after being rehabilitated it is ready to be seen by the public. For an amazing stay in Barcelona, take a look at beautiful apartments by Two Sisters Apartments in the neighborhood of Sant Antoni.
Casa Vicens of Barcelona was declared a World Heritage by UNESCO in 2005, it is located in the quiet district of Gràcia, and looks like an oasis of oriental aroma. It was built according to the project of summer house realized by young Gaudí, ordered by the broker Manel Vicens i Montaner. This is the first work that Gaudí created in Barcelona and where he was able to demonstrate all his talent since it is considered one of the first masterpieces of modernism. Casa Vicens creates an innovative and original style that breaks stylistically with everything that had previously been built in Catalonia. It is one of the first examples of the aesthetic renovation of art and architecture that took place throughout Europe at the end of the 19th century.
There is a permanent exhibition, which occupies the whole 2nd floor of Casa Vicens Gaudí museum that will act as a foundation for the rest of the exhibitions and installations scheduled. The permanent collection is based on the social and cultural context in Barcelona when Casa Vicens was being designed (1883-1885), looking more closely at the beginning of the career of young Gaudí through his influences, reflections, first projects, works and collaborations, to then focus on the original project and construction of Casa Vicens and its changes over the years.
This wonder of the city will be open to the public at a price of 16 euros for the general entrance and for 19 euros, if you want a guided tour. Visit Casa Vicens, we have been waiting for many years to be able to do it and now it is the time!
