We visited Casa Vicens on the way back from Park Guell - it is pretty much within a walking distance. The building is absolutely beautiful inside and out, very much worth checking out.

This house is located in the Gracia district. It has been beautifully restored recently and shows Gaudi's early achievements. The house is on a much smaller scale than la Pedrera or Casa Batlló. However, it is more on a human scale and easier to relate...More
