The Casa Vicens was the first important construction of the Catalan architect. Built between 1883 and 1888, it was an imaginative project of a residence for a wealthy family owner of a ceramic factory. Ceramics play a very important role in its design, as can be seen in the facade that contains the “trencadís”. You can also see some influences of Islamic architecture on its facade and inside some rooms.
