El Capricho de Gaudí El Capricho de Gaudí

El Capricho of Gaudí (1883 – 1885), also known as Villa Quijano, is a colourful and original mansion designed by the brilliant architect Antoni Gaudí (1852 - 1926). Regarded as one of his first significant works, El Capricho house marks the beginning of the modernist movement and lets us get acquainted with a young Gaudí full of energy and vitality. Together with the Episcopal Palace of Astorga and the Casa Botines of León, El Capricho house is one of Gaudí's three buildings constructed out of Catalunya. On the facade covered with shiny sunflowers, Gaudí conceals an elaborate system of symbolic metaphors, which tells us of nature, light and music. Through the exotic and vibrating Capricho house, one can feel the very essence that makes Gaudí so unique. That is why, after more than 130 years, this building remains Gaudí's hidden gem.
