Casa Vicens was built by Antoni Gaudí for Vicens Montaner between 1883 and 1888. The summer residence was Gaudí's first major project.
The building shows many oriental influences, such as the latticework screen in the dining room gallery.
The trompe l'oeil ceiling painting is by Torres Massana.
Nature motives are present on many of the ceilings.
The building even contained a small smoking room.
During the last renovations a new staircase was installed.
