Art Nouveau family visit, another way to discover Barcelona

There are several modernist buildings in the center of Barcelona that have activities or visits specially designed for families or children. If you are looking for family plans linked to the Catalan culture, pick up paper and pencil!

Casa Vicens, Antoni Gaudí‘s first building, is one of the modernist buildings offering regular family activities in Barcelona.  Thanks to these, the little ones can enjoy the building in their own way. They are sure to have a great time taking out their interior painter or architect!


Another modernist building that doesn’t forget to think of small artists is Casa de les Punxes. This iconic building by Puig i Cadafalch has occasional family workshops such as the one to be held on 10 November or those held at the end of the month at the Saló de Famílies Nombroses de Catalunya. The real strength of Casa de les Punxes lies in the free complement it offers children during family visits, the Kit Explora les Punxes, a booklet of activities with which young and old can learn about Casa de les Punxes while having a good time.

In addition, the house has an extensive school program with various activities ranging from different workshops to guided tours. The didactic proposal of Casa de les Punxes bets on offering an approach to the artistic and historical patrimony of Catalonia. To this end, it uses activities aimed at children and young people that encourage the acquisition of habits and values to solve problems and situations, seeking to compromise all areas of the curriculum.  In addition to the dynamic and participative visit to the building, there are also activities on the origin and evolution of the legend of Sant Jordi, on the ornamental elements of the Casa de les Punxes, on its architect or on its historical and artistic context.


The well-known symbol of Barcelona designed by Antoni Gaudí, the Sagrada Familia, also thinks about how to please small visitors. The proposal for children’s activities in the Sagrada Familia has been changing over time in recent years, but what is clear is that the Sagrada Familia, like Casa de les Punxes, currently offers occasional children’s workshops.


Another house that joins the family plans is Casa Amatller. This house offers different family activities that delight the youngest, literally… some of them involve chocolate!


Finally, Casa Batlló, Antoni Gaudí’s emblematic building, also has its own activity focused on the family public, consisting of a special visit where the children and the history of the house are the protagonists.
