Geocache Description:


Casa Vicens is a house in Barclena, designed by Antoni Gaudí, now a museum. It is located in the neighbourhood of Gracia, on Carrer de les Carolines, 24. It is considered one of the first buildings of Art Nouveau and was the first house designed by Gaudí.

This early work exhibits several influences, most notably the Moorish (or Mudéjar) influence. Casa Vicens marks the first time Gaudí utilized an orientalist style, mixing together Hispano-Arabic inspiration. This was a style of architecture that completely breaks with the norm of the period. Not only does this house mark Gaudí's coming of age, being his first major work of architecture, but it also represents the flowering of Catalan modern architecture.

La Casa Vicens es un edificio modernista situado en Barcelona, en la calle de las Carolinas 18-24. Obra de Antoni Gaudí, fue el primer proyecto de importancia del arquitecto tras su licenciatura como arquitecto en 1878. Se construyó entre 1883 y 1888.​ En la fecha en la que se construyó el edificio, Gracia era todavía un núcleo urbano independiente de Barcelona y poseedor de Ayuntamiento propio, con la categoría de villa, aunque actualmente es un distrito de la ciudad.

El edificio fue declarado Bien de Interés Cultural el 24 de julio de 1969, y Patrimonio de la Humanidad en 2005.
