Spring Vicens

Casa Vicens turns nature into architecture

Nowadays our garden it is a small oasis located in the centre of the Gràcia neighbourhood, but when Gaudí designed it, it had larger dimensions and featured a large waterfall and a circular fountain which refreshed the covered porch.

In Casa Vicens, Gaudí managed to design a garden which continues into the house, where nature can be found on the walls and ceilings. This helps to create a strong connection between the indoor and outdoor spaces.

The current garden is around 300 m², it has various flowerbeds, flowerpots with plants, and a garden roof. It should be noted that the atmosphere of the original late nineteenth century setting has been recreated. Some of the trees that were already on the property have been preserved, such as the oak, which is around 8 meters high or the magnolia which is around 10-12 meters high. The rest are plants which were placed during the rehabilitation of the house, following the characteristics of the plantations from that period.

Now you can discover it.
