Reopening of the Casa Vicens in Barcelona – 16 November 2017


Casa Vicens was built as a summer home between 1883 and 1885; it was designed by the 31-year-old Gaudí for Manel Vicens i Montaner (1836-1895), a broker-dealer. It is Gaudí’s first building in Barcelona where he was able to display his enormous talent.

It is the eighth building in Barcelona listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the last to be opened to the public.

The first phase of the project got underway in April 2015, and the full execution began on the 19th of September 2016. Respect for Antoni Gaudí’s work is the criterion determining the architectural rehabilitation and restoration process. The work on Casa Vicens is slated to finish in the autumn of 2017.

The project is sponsored by the Andorran bank MoraBanc, a prominent private family bank which purchased the property in March 2014 and which aims to preserve the world cultural heritage and invest in a world-class city like Barcelona.
