Opening of the Vicens House
The Casa Vicens in Barcelona, one of the outstanding works of the famous modernist architect Antoni Gaudí, will open its doors on Thursday, November 16th. Tickets can already be purchased via the internet, with two modes: free visit without time limit and guided tour in Catalan, Spanish, English and French in groups of 10 people.
MoraBanc, an Andorran bank, acquired the property about 3 years ago with the aim of opening it to the public for the first time and as a long-term investment.
It should be noted that Casa Vicens has remained a family residence for over 100 years, since 1888. Now open to the public, the house-museum has adapted to the needs of the public to allow access to people with mobility difficulties. The tour covers the whole area, both within the each and the garden.
Rates and schedules
Standard tickets cost € 16, however, residents in the province of Barcelona only costs € 12. There will be a discount for those under 25, over 65, disabled and large families.
And in addition, two days a year you can visit for free, the European Museum Night and the International Museum Day.
The farm will open every day of the week, with a schedule of 10 to 20 hours. Closing only for Christmas, New Year and Reyes. Also on the day of Santa Rita (May 22) will promote special activities and visits. It is a tradition that comes from more than a century, in which the later garden opened to the neighborhood because it hosted a source dedicated to the patron of the impossible to bless roses and candles and to drink of its carbonated water.
