For the first time, we can admire the architecture of a young Antoni Gaudi. In fact, this is his first solo project. Casa Vicens was the first building designed by Gaudí in its entirety.
During the visit to Casa Vicens by Gaudi, the models will unveil you the original project and the size of the garden and a walk inside the house will show how Gaudi was a genius. Materials, artistic techniques and the distribution of the rooms reveal an architect with great practical vision. The living room, the gallery and the smoking lounge are part of this fantastic journey. The icing on the cake of this visit of the Casa Vicens in Barcelona is a walk to the roof where we will find the first chimneys made by Gaudi, something that has almost become his signature.
La Casa Vicens is located in the Gracia district. That’s why we propose a stroll to explore the area and considering that the mosaic is very important in the work of Gaudí, also we offer a workshop to learn the trade.

Anna was great! She was informative without being boring, catered to our specific sight-seeing requests, and kept us fully enlightened and entertained. How this woman has so much knowledge, I don’t know! She literally had the answer to every single question we had. We stopped for a coffee mid-way as she could sense we were getting tired from walking and I enjoyed chatting to her socially. I 100% recommend her for anyone going to Barcelona!
We engaged Anna for a 3 days private tour in Barcelona. She is very dedicated and knowledgeable on every places of interest in Barcelona. When my child wasn’t feeling too well during the trip, she was flexible and accommodative to our last minute changes and requests. My family truly enjoyed our trip in Barcelona and had a wonderful time spent with Anna. If you are looking for customized private tour, Anna will be the best person to engage!!
We concur with all the previous wonderful reviews of Anna and her team. We ended up having three tours with Anna and each one was different, informative and superb. If you would prefer to soak in the city and keep your nose out of the guide books and maps contact Barcelonina. Our trip to Spain had been derailed but once we contacted Jordi, everything started to improve. These folks have it together, make great suggestions on what to do and are patient with letting you make up your mind. Barcelona would not have been nearly as fascinating without them.
