Private Gaudi home in Barcelona now open for private tours

This is a rare experience.. no crowds.. fortunate to get an intimate inside look at a privately commissioned home

Why would someone want to live in a church?

It's not a church, it's a building that draws on Gaudi's architectural obsessions and religious obsessions and leanings. The commissioning owners must also have been very religious, as you would expect at the turn of the 19th century in Catalonia.

I imagine no crowds due to the entry fee! Something new to see, good info -- but I think it's easier to see the one right down off the Ramblas, the Palau Guell, and it's only 12 euro.

Thanks so much for sharing this. I would pay that in a heartbeat. I am not much of a Barcelona fan, but love Gaudi's work.
