    The house where Gaudi lived

    In this house Gaudi lived his last 20 years from 1906 to 1926. You can see many personal belongings of Gaudi as well as his well-known furniture designs. It is quite interesting to see where the great master lived, slept and ate. It gives you another perspective besides the architectural masterpieces he left behind.

    The Antoni Gaudi Museum is located in same area as Parc Guell. Its a lovely pink house and it also used to be Gaudi's home. Highly recommended if your're intrested in Gaudi's art and life, times. He lived here 1906-1925... Really an interesting house to experience and walk around in.

    To enter Gaudi's house there is a fee (approx. 17 euros). The queues may be big, but what a feast for the eyes it is!! The curves of the windows and walls, the mosaic front, the staircases, the rooms and the chimney rooftop.
    I don't want to spoil it for you so I will keep this review short and sweet!

    Look at the pictures to get a feel of the house. It's a great way to spend a morning/afternoon.

    There is wheelchair access to the ground and first floors but not the roof top.

    The museum gives us a glance at another aspect of the Gaudi mind, the day to day things that make a home. Here you can see things like a glass and wood partition panel, a curvilinear mirror, chairs, benches and even a table, all designed by Gaudi.
    Entrance fee is 5.50 Euro, but only 4.50 if you have your Barcelona Card.

    Between 1906 and 1926, Gaudí lived in a house located in Parc Güell. The house, known as the Casa Museu Gaudí, was designed by Francesc Berenguer. It serves as a museum and displays some of Gaudí's furniture (including some from the Casa Batlló) and drawings.

    It was exciting to see how this geniuous lived. But not only lived but also his furniture, drawings, which was a side of Gaudi I didn't knew anything about until I came to Barcelona. It is alsoexciting to look into someones home, even though a museum isn't like a home but anyway :-)

    Casa-Museu Gaudi

    Gaudi designed furniture
    4 more images

    Located within Park Guell, up the hill to the right of the entrance, is the Casa-Museu Gaudi. This is the house that Gaudi lived in for most of the last 20 years of his life - from 1906 to 1926.

    The house was not actually designed by Gaudi himself, but by Francesc Berenguer i Mestres. It was supposed to be a prototype or show-home to help sell the 60 or more homes that were projected to have been built in the failed housing development which later became the park.

    Today, the structure of the building is still the same as when Gaudi lived there. A visit to the museum is well worth while, as not only is it an interestingly designed building itself, but you get the chance to see some of Gaudi's personal possessions.

    You will see some of the great architect's drawings, and better still a selection of his quirky furniture, including some that used to be housed in Casa Batllo.

    Opening Hours:
    Apr to Sep - Daily from 10am-8pm
    Oct to Mar - Daily from 10am-6pm

    Admission cost: 4 euro (Feb 2007), or 1 euro if you buy the combined ticket at the Sagrada Familia

    Casa Quadras

    Facade; Casa Quadras-L'Eixample

    Constructed in 1904 this building was the Barons of Quadras residence. Today it houses the music museum. The architect Puig i Calafalch used an elegant interior design and the exterior of the building, there is extensive use of metalfor the main entrance. The gothic influence here is quite evident.
