Full description
Avoid the crowds with an exclusive early guided visit to Casa Vicens, Gaudí’s first important project and the eighth building listing as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Barcelona. Discover the huge differences with his most well-known works with the help of an expert guide.

Check in for the activity at least 15 minutes before the departure time at Casa Vicens. Then, meet your guide for the tour, and set off to explore the house. Rooms with oriental details and Mudejar style dominate the site. Nonetheless, the artistic quality of the building does not fall far from Gaudí’s other works.

Casa Vicens was built between 1883 and 1888 and was once located in an independent town from Barcelona. However, during the industrial revolution, the city expanded and the walls were demolished. As a result, the original city united to surrounding villages. Today, the house is located in the Gracia neighborhood. The landmark opens its doors earlier only for your group.

Choose the optional tour of Park Güell and experience one of the most important works by Antoni Gaudí. The park, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1984, is set in a unique area with amazing views over the city. Discover how the original project changed to the current public park. Walk around the monumental area of the park with your guide and wonder at Gaudí’s mastery, seeing how he created a naturalistic and organic style, achieving a perfect fusion between architecture and nature.
