"Anton Gaudi House" Gaudi's House - Casa Museu Gaudi Tip by Rupanworld


Park Guell was originally designed to be a private residential district and a house was built by his assistants in it to serve as a sample house for potential purchasers. But the project never materialised and hence, Gaudi himself purchased this house in 1906 and lived here for 20 years until his death and worked here. The house has a simple architecture, not like Gaudi signature pieces, because then it would have been easier to sell to potential purchasers. The house is now converted into a museum and exhibits Gaudi's work and life and includes drawings by him.
