Antoni Gaudí’s First House Casa Vicens Will Open its Door For The First Time

Casa Vicens in Barcelona is a remarkable architectural gem, and for the very first time will welcome guests for a one-night stay.

The lavish summerhouse was built for a local family by Antoni Gaudi, the famed architect of the extraordinary church of the Sagrada Família in Barcelona. Guests who secure their booking will be greeted by their host Emili, a member of the team that recently transformed Gaudí’s first house into a house museum. Guests will enjoy an exclusive tour of the house, and insight into the restoration project.

Doors will be closed to the public, giving guests unprecedented access during a socially distanced exploration of Casa Vicens and its signature blend of Moorish, neoclassical and organic forms.

We are deeply committed to the preservation of Gaudí’s cultural heritage and it will be a great pleasure to share the building’s secrets and rich history with whoever books”, said Emili, Casa Vicens Gaudí Host.

The stay includes a Gaudí-inspired Michelin star menu in the dining room: a jaw-dropping gem that is full to the brim with unique and never-before-seen decorative touches – the perfect setting for an intimate yet unforgettable meal. Dinner will be followed by a nightcap in the luxurious smoking room.
