Getting here

Carrer de les Carolines, 20-26
08012 Barcelona

In the heart of Barcelona, in the Gràcia district, behind a wrought-iron fence in the shape of palm fronds, lies the best-kept secret: Casa Vicens, Gaudí’s first masterpiece.

Delve into Gràcia as you will Casa Vicens, little by little, calmly, at your own pace. To enjoy all it has to offer and the special environment on its streets and squares full of life; to chat with locals and enjoy the architecture, shops and buildings; to have some tapas or discover the latest cultural events. Because the Gràcia district is one of the city’s most emblematic neighbourhoods, packed with character: it combines the flavour of tradition, with workshops, herb shops, bookshops and cafés, with the most cutting-edge artistic and culinary offering.

Each August for the past 200 years, residents decorate their streets with spectacular adornments, a sign of the pride and authenticity of a town that was independent until 1897.
