The Casa Vicens is not usually one of the typical stops for tourists, although it is a magnificent work of architecture of Gaudí. The house has an exotic and oriental air different from all the others. In addition, it is not near the centre and the most touristic area. It is for this reason that you can enjoy this building without the massification of tourists.
