Last winter I visited for the first time Casa Vicens, the first house designed by Gaudí in Gracia neighborhood of Barcelona city as a Summer residence for the broker Mr Manuel Vicens. This house had been built between 1883 to 1885, when the young Gaudí was on his thirties. 


Since October last year, this house finally opened the doors to the main public with a great schedule: everyday opens from 10 am to 20 pm. The house is located near Park Güell in the neighborhood of Gracia. Regular buses stops close to the entrance, as well as metro station Fontana (green line) is just 5 minutes away. Entrance ticket costs 16€ p/p but reductions for kids, students and seniors are available online. It's recommended to book your tickets on the official website: 


Antoni Gaudí, the architect, accepted the commission of this fabulous summer residence the same year he started to build the famous church of Sagrada Familia with donations. The evidence shows how fast he finished this house in contrast to the slow process to build the church, still unfinished nowadays. This private commission only last 2 years, from 1883 to 1885.
