Description:

Casa Vicens, Gaudí’s first house, will open its doors in autumn 2017.

It is the eighth building in Barcelona listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the last to be opened to the public.

Casa Vicens was built as a summer home between 1883 and 1885 1 ; it was designed by the 31-year-old Gaudí for Manel Vicens i Montaner (1836-1895), a broker-dealer. It is Gaudí’s first building in Barcelona where he was able to display his enormous talent.

The rehabilitation and restoration of Casa Vicens were necessary in order to showcase and recover Antoni Gaudí’s original design to the extent possible.

This restoration also comes with the necessary rehabilitation to adapt Casa Vicens to its new cultural use and public visits to ensure that it complies with the safety, accessibility and comfort measures that a future cultural asset of its kind should have.
