After Casa Batló this is my favorite private residence designed by Gaudi. This one is especially interesting showing a strong influence of moorish mudejar style architecture
If you have known Gaudí's works, you will know at a glance that this is a very early work of Gaudí, and the overall style is different from his later works. At that time, Gaudí had not yet fully followed his sentence "The curve belongs to God, and the straight line belongs to mankind", so you can see Gaudí's early creative ideas here.
This building was listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2005. The whole building has Mudejar and Oriental flavors and belongs to the works of Gaudí's "Oriental Period". Gaudí has always worked slowly and carefully. It took him 10 years from the beginning of the construction project commissioned by Manuel Vincens to the completion of the entire construction project.
Gaudí’s works are far from the city center, if you don’t have time, you can skip it
Then I went to the subway station sign coming out of Güell Park and saw that the House of Vincent is nearby~ so I followed the navigation~ in a very small street~ especially obvious building~ super beautiful~ because there is no reservation~ Did not go in ~ not many people visited ~ take pictures outside ~ love the unique charm of this style ~
The House of Vincent is the fourth World Heritage Site we visited in Barcelona. It takes about 20 minutes to walk from Gracia stop on the tourist bus blue line. The Vincennes House is a family residence in Barcelona, designed by Antoni Gaudí and built by industrialist Manuel Vincennes. It is the first important work of Gaudi. In 2005, it was listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO under the "Works of Antoni Gaudí". The building is located at Carrer de les Carolines 24, in the district of Gràcia. Four floors. It is now a private residence without a nameplate, but the popularity is still there. It is not difficult to find the unique style of the house from the endless stream of tourists and people taking pictures.
Museum inside, not much to seeoutside if you dont go onside the museum. But easy to go by metro and just walk by.
This would be a great add-on to Parc Guell or even La Sagrada Familia/Sant Pau. They have done a lovely job restoring this gem. It's interesting and a bit smaller than the other Gaudi sites, so you co...
Beautiful place to visit, a beautiful work of Gaudí less known to public but very interesting, I definitely recommend And the drink on the coffee terrasse after is a real plus
I have been living in bcn for a year, and this is one of the most beautiful places I have been to! I loved it more than casa Batlo for example, is amaaaazing
Hidden gem of a house - had a phone app audio tour guide, which worked amazingly and should be the norm I think. The sorbet and the cava were the cherry on top of the cake. Highly recommend it!
