205 reviews
Visit this off-the-beaten-path Antoni Gaudí home on a self-guided tour of Casa Vicens. While less visited than some of Gaudí’s other Barcelona masterpieces—such as the Sagrada Familia and Park Guell—touring this historic house provides a deeper insight into the acclaimed architect. Plus, unlike Gaudí’s more crowded attractions, you can take unobscured photos of the building's unique architecture without hoards of people getting in the way.

Definitely worth a stop to get a dose od serenity into a busy Barcelona trip. I thought the film on the history of the convent was particularly worthwhile.

What a hidden gem, such an old building (school) having such vast history and old style architecture, it's worth going 5o this place. It's out of town, so need to plan to go there Or city bus tour takes u there.

We live near the monestir and have visited it only a couple times before for specific events. Recently we were able to have a guided visit and we loved every minute of it. The cloister merits a sit just to relax in its quietness and the church a visit for its splendor. We recently went to the Christmas concert in the church and the acustics were incredible. We would suggest reading about it before visiting.

It is a lovely building but the audio guide didn't say how many people lived there, etc., and gave little real information. Church was closed which, as is part of the monatry was odd. Still, interesting building and some nice artefacts.

If you would like to take a break from the typical monastery landmarks, then this is the place! The monastery is a quiet place up on the hill with lush scenery and a rich history (it was founded in 12th century) in Medieval and Romanesque architecture styles, with exhibitions and garden.
