If you’ve ever been to Barcelona, Spain, then Antoni Gaudi’s Casa Vicens may be a familiar sight. This masterpece is located in the Gràcia on Carrer de les Carolines, 20-26 neighborhood and was actually the first house designed by Gaudí, which is now a museum. Airbnb is offering a one night stay for a group of two guests this fall.
For the lucky group who get to stay in this former summerhouse, Host Emili, a member of the team that recently transformed it into a house museum, will be there to greet you. He will be sharing his insights and secrets from the recent restoration project during an exclusive tour of Casa Vicens. You won’t have to worry about the public causing chaos, as its doors will be closed to the outside, giving guests exclusive access. More information here.
