Casa Vicens (1883-1888) was Atoni Gaudí’s first work. It was a task from the wealthy stockbroker Manuel Vicens i Montaner. The building combines traditional Spanish architecture and century-old Arabic traditions. Nevertheless you can already recognize in this work Gaudí’s typical elements: near natural shapes, ceramic and many colors. Today it is only possible to view the house from the outside as it is private property.
