  • Casa Vicens

    Casa Vicens

    Now you have the chance to visit this architectural gem, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that has been restored this year.

    The Casa Vicens was the first house designed by Antoni Gaudí and the building that marked the beginning of his career.

    Gaudí had actually received the commission from Manuel Vicens i Montaner, a brick and tile factory owner, some years earlier; Vicens had inherited the land, which at the time stood in the independent village of Gràcia, and wanted to build a summer house there. In its design, the recently graduated Gaudí makes extensive use of colour and tiles, with Arabic, oriental and neoclassical influences. The beginnings of his singular style and inventiveness are clearly on show.

  • Toulouse Lautrec

    Toulouse Lautrec

    The work of Henri-Raymond de Toulouse-Lautrec is instantly recognisable, with its swathes of strong colour, portrayals of a certain Parisian lifestyle at the end of the 19th century, and posters advertising everything from recitals to bikes. A pioneer of the post-Impressionist movement, he was extremely prolific and produced hundreds of works before his early death at 36.

    This exhibition at CaixaForum looks in the main at the artist's years in Montmartre, his nocturnal life and relationship with the cabarets and underworld of the French capital, through a series of paintings, posters and other items. After your visit to the show, it's well worth exploring the building of CaixaForum. Designed by celebrated Catalan modernista architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch, it was originally a textile factory and featured a number of spacious halls that now lend themselves perfectly to exhibiting art. A guided tour is on offer, which includes a visit to the impressive rooftop.

  • Picasso Discovers Paris

    Picasso Discovers Paris

    Barcelona's Picasso Museum is one of its most-loved art centres, focusing as it does on the early years of the Spanish painter's life; he moved with his family to Barcelona in 1895 when he was 14 and already well established in his art studies. The city played a key role in his development; in places such as Els Quatre Gats café, he regularly met with other creatives involved in the avant-garde movement. But he was a man constantly looking for new experiences and inspirations, and this exhibition at the Museu Picasso looks at the impact that his first two visits to Paris had on him.

    Among the artists on show are Manet, Degas, Cézanne and Gauguin (on loan from the permanent collection of the Musée d'Orsay in Paris and the Musée national Picasso Paris), whose work Picasso first encountered in person when he was in the French capital.

  • 48h Open House Barcelona

    48h Open House Barcelona

    This is the main architectural event in Barcelona, a weekend in October where over 200 buildings of every shape and size open their doors to the general public. It is an initiative of the 48h Open House Barcelona association, which began in London in 1992. From then on, the concept of an 'Open House' has been implemented around the world: New York, Dublin, Galway, Tel Aviv and, since 2010, Barcelona, have their own week dedicated to local architecture. 'Open House' offers the opportunity to understand and experience architecture in a unique way, through an architectonic experience.

    The program invites everyone to explore and understand the value of a well-constructed and designed space. In the last few years, this event in Barcelona has expanded to include cities and villages from the metropolitan area and the Maresme Coast, and on the roster of buildings to visit we will come across churches, schools, sports centers, apartment blocks, libraries and restaurants.
