Barcelona: Gaudi's Casa Vicens Skip-the-Line Entrance Ticket

Barcelona: Gaudi's Casa Vicens Skip-the-Line Entrance Ticket

Visit Casa Vicens, the first house of Gaudí, and the first important work by the architect. This was the work that marked his point of departure, an architectural gem which was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2005.  Constructed between 1883 and 1885 by order of Mr. Manuel Vicens, Casa Vicens is one of the first masterpieces of Modernism, and an anticipation of the later work of Gaudí.  Originally, it was projected as a holiday home with a garden, in which geometric shapes and rich ornamentation, inspired by the surrounding vegetation, are present both in the exterior of the house and in the different interior spaces. This skip-the-line ticket allows you priority entrance and access to the whole complex.

Barcelona: Guided Gaudi Tour to Sagrada, Houses & Park Guell

Barcelona: Guided Gaudi Tour to Sagrada, Houses & Park Guell

This perfectly planned walking tour of Gaudí's most iconic buildings gets you inside each site without the crowds and gives you the flexibility to get up early or sleep in on their vacation. The morning tour includes entrance to Casa Battló where you'll get to explore each room ahead of the crowds. While the afternoon tour takes you inside the first house Gaudí designed, Casa Vicens, which laid the foundation for his success. Either way, you’ll enjoy the same crowd-free experience and visit Park Güell and La Sagrada Familia with a knowledgeable guide. The morning tour starts at Casa Battló where you’ll go straight to the most famous rooms. Your guide will show you the tiny details that make this house so fascinating; from breathing ‘gills’ to the clever play of light in the building’s tiles. Then it’s on to Casa Milà, where you’ll learn how this austere building came by the nickname “Stone Quarry.” From there, it’s off to Park Güell. Part fanciful explosion of color, part thoughtful study of organic forms, it is a perfect reflection of the natural world. Since this became a ticketed site a few years ago, entrance lines have become extremely long – so it’s a good thing you have skip-the-line access. Finally, hop on a private minibus for a short transfer to Gaudí’s most iconic work: the one and only Sagrada Família. You’ll spend a full hour exploring the church itself, then, unlike most tours, you will go down into the museum to see some of the architect's drawings, models, and calculations, plus a clear view of his tomb. If you opt for the afternoon tour, you'll begin the walking tour with stops outside the impressive Casa Battló and Casa Mila. From there, you'll ride the metro to Casa Vicens and enter the colorful first house Gaudí designed. Most tourists miss this, but you'll find out how Casa Vicens put Gaudí on the map. From there, you'll walk to Parc Güell and breeze past all the tourists with skip-the-line tickets. After your guided tour, board a private minibus to the last stop of the day: La Sagrada Familia. Enter after the daytime crowds have left and the golden hour light streams through the stained glass windows. As the tour draws to a close, get recommendations from your guide on where to eat the best tapas or stay a little longer to continue exploring.

Barcelona: Gaudí Walking Tour with Casa Vicens and Casa Milà

Barcelona: Gaudí Walking Tour with Casa Vicens and Casa Milà

Your Gaudí walking tour starts at the old village of Gràcia. There you will meet your English, Chinese, Japanese, or Korean-speaking guide before setting off to discover one of Barcelona’s best kept secrets until 2017: Casa Vicens. This was Gaudí’s first house as a young graduate, and was inspired by Oriental influences. The house, surrounded by luxurious gardens in the past, is now the ultimate hidden gem of the city. Out of the upper Barcelona neighborhood you’ll walk down Passeig de Gracia and arrive to Casa Batlló, where you'll be able to appreciate the legendary facade and the dragon-like rooftop. This is probably the building where Gaudí let his imagination go completely, with many people saying it’s like being deep under the surface of the ocean. During the tour down Passeig de Gràcia you’ll discover some other amazing buildings from the same Modernista period. Finally, arrive to Casa Milà where you can get ready to experience some deep immersion. Barcelonans hated it at the time that it was built, but these days "La Pedrera" is one of Barcelona’s must-see attractions. The house is like a fairy tale when you see it from outside, and even better when viewed from the interior. With a fast-track ticket included, you'll be able to skip the lines and explore the tenant's apartment, the inner courtyards, the attic and the rooftop. Casa Milà's rooftop is said to be the best terrace in Barcelona, not only because of its amazing views, but also because you'll be able to pose next to Gaudí's famous solider statues, one of the city icons.

Incredible to see Casa Vicens prior to Gaudi’s other works in Barcelona. This house sets the tone perfectly for Gaudi’s architectural style. Our guide was amazing - Nuria. Would highly recommend it as a first stop when visiting Gaudi’s other masterpieces!

This experience with go city pass all inclusive was really nice. You don't have to worry about selling out and you avoid queuing to buy tickets and then you also save money. I recommend it for those who want to visit all the attractions of the city

Beautiful house, not too busy either, had a really lovely time, especially sitting in the garden or by the water feature

The guide was very knowledgeable. He kept the tour running smoothly despite the rainy weather.

Highly recommended! Someone who likes Gaudi's architecture must see his first house.
