For anyone that comes to Barcelona and falls in love with the Gaudí buildings (and that is immensely rich, we should add) one of the less well-known ones, the Casa Vicens (Carolines 24 [map]) is still for sale.

Gaudí's first major work, it was built between 1883 and 1888 as a summer house for a local tile manufacturer Manuel Vicens i Montaner, at a time when there were still open spaces in that area of the city.

The Casa Vicens is not quite as unique as later works like the Casa Batlló (1904-06) and the Casa Milà (1906-1910), with its main distinguishing features perhaps the tiles that decorate the façade and the ironwork fencing that surrounds its once much more extensive garden.

You've got photos and floor plans etc on casavicens.es if you're looking for a second home…
