Cases Singulars is a company dedicated to the management, communication and diffusion of unique houses and spaces in Barcelona, the majority of which are privately-owned.

We provide and diffuse information about this heritage in order to give it worldwide presence, we promote high-quality experiences throughout this heritage, incorporating the values of sustainability, conservation and preservation of this heritage into said experiences.

Visit

Visits to the Cases Singulars are guided tours, always led by somebody who has training in the field of heritage, history and architecture. The visits are provided in several languages. The groups are always small and have a specific focus on the visitor, as our objective is for them to be introduced to, to enjoy and to be exposed to a very unique experience.

Also, in each Casa Singular you can find an extensive program of activities: concerts, micro-theater and family activities, among others.

There is also the opportunity to visit the Cases Singulars in a group, as long as you book in advance and we also welcome teaching groups.
