Casa Vicens House
The first work by Gaudí on his own.
This house exhibits the architectural concept of Gaudí that is repeated in his other buildings, the materials with their own texture and colour, the passionate colours and fauna.
The exterior of the house is an excess of brick and pottery because the owner had a quarry that produced these materials and imposed Gaudí to use them in its construction. The building is an evocation of Mudejar architecture. Inside is where you really appreciate Gaudí's style.
