See where it all began! Casa Vicens was Antoni Gaudí's first major commission, and its legacy can be felt throughout all of the master architect's finest work. It was built as a summer garden house for Manuel Vicens i Montaner, and kickstarted the Modernism movement in Europe. This fascinating museum is a living tribute to one of the greatest creative minds the world has ever known.
When a Catalonian stockbroker enlisted the skills of a young architect to design his holiday home, he couldn't have known the scale of the genius he was about to unleash. Inspired by patterns found in the natural world, the pastel-hued and intricately detailed miniature palace is as stunning today as it was in 1883.
Step inside Gaudí's mind and discover a technicolor tribute to his endless imagination. The renovated building has been repurposed as an architectural museum and cultural space, with two floors of meticulous design, and a truly exquisite rooftop terrace which offers amazing views of the surrounding area.
Don't miss the Mediterranean garden, dedicated to Saint Rita, and the cavernous Catalan vaults, which now house the La Capell bookshop – the perfect place to pick up a memento of your visit!
