Gaudi House Museum: an immersion in the life of a pioneering modernist

museum

Nestled in the heart of Parc Güell, the magnificent home of one of the masters of Catalan modernism has become a symbolic destination.

The iconic artist Antoni Gaudí lived here for almost 20 years, from 1906 until his death in 1926. It was in 1963 that the famous residence in Catalan, called Casa Museu Gaudí, was inaugurated as a museum.

It houses a marvelous collection of furniture and objects designed by the architect, as well as memorabilia that belonged to him. Gorgeous works that adorn the bedrooms, and, outside, some of his most sumptuous sculptures are contained in vast green gardens. With its pink facade, this remains a testament to the unique style of the artist.

The house has four floors, two of which can be visited. The ground and first floor are accessible, the second is for internal use, and the top floor, which houses the Enric Casanalles library, can be visited with permission.
