Vincent's House is the fourth World Heritage Site we have visited in Barcelona. It takes about 20 minutes to walk from Gracia station on the Blue Line of the tourist bus. Vincent's House is a family residence in Barcelona, designed by Anthony Goldie and built by industrialist Manuel Vincent. It was Gaodi's first important work. In 2005, it was listed by UNESCO under World Heritage "Anthony & Goldie's Works". The building is located in Carrer de les Carolines 24, in the Gracia area. Four floors. Now it is a private house, no nameplate, but the popularity is still there, from the endless stream of tourists and photographers and the unique style of the house, it is not difficult to find.
Vincent's House is Anthony Gaudi's first important architectural design, and the germination of all architectural design after him! In 1883, Mr. Manel Vicens invited Gaudi to design his summer villa! After three major repairs, the first was Gaudi's original design from 1883 to 1885, then Joan Baptista's extended design in 1925, and the garden design! The structure is divided into garden, basement, main building, first floor, second floor and balcony! Unfortunately, this time I went to Vincent's house, which was being renovated, but I couldn't get into it. I heard that Vincent's house was bought by a banker and will be open to the public soon.
Before I went to Barcelona, I didn't know about Vincent's House, but when I saw the Vincent's House in the pictures of Gaudi's works, I was deeply attracted. ~The beauty of Vincent's House is that it looks like a rainbow in the sunshine. ~So on the last day of Barcelona, before I went to the airport, I couldn't help taking Line 3 to Vincent's House (in Quel Park). The first stop, the first stop of F, whose name was forgotten, is probably Fontana?... quite close, which proved to be a worthwhile trip. Vincent's home is still used as a residential building and is not open to the outside world. Moreover, Vincent's home is hidden in a building with a small scale. It is difficult to find ~Suggestions for the children's shoes that are more persistent in Gaudi's works, don't miss them.~
This Vincent's home was actually Gaudi's first work, or his maiden work. Before graduation, he was asked by the owner of a ceramics dealer to help him build a house. The owner of the house was a ceramics dealer, and the owner hoped that he could advertise for him through the house. There was such a big project waiting for him, so Gaudi immediately promised to be as full as possible. The house started in 1883 and took five years to complete. Vincent's House is a four-square house, which is very traditional in design. It seems very different from his later works. Although many details of Vincent's house are excellent, so we must go and see it.
The Wiesenthal House was designed and built by Gaudi in his early days and was also used for housing. Now it seems to be privately owned and cannot be visited internally. It can be accessed by subway. The building itself is small. In a residential area, its unique architectural style makes it very prominent.
