|Designed by Antoni Gaudí and built between 1883 and 1888.
Antoni Gaudí's first major commission in the city of Barcelona, Casa Vicens is a mix of Gothic and Mudéjar styles. This privately-owned home set the tone for Gaudí's subsequent work; many of his trademarks - e.g., bright colors, extensive tile work, and elaborately decorated chimneys - are already present in Casa Vicens. Gaudí's love of nature is also celebrated: plants which had to be destroyed in order to build Casa Vicens are incorporated into the building.
