We just came back from a trip to Eurpope and in our time exploring Barcelona we found this attraction we had read about online. It took 15 minutes to dress up and take pictures and provided us with a great momento of our trip for less money than some of the cheap trinkets sold on the streets. It was a bit hard to find so get a good street map and some directions and you will not be disappointed. Friendly service too!

Simple!
Go there (close to Museu Picasso) --> get dressed up in Flamenco style (they are lovely people) --> get a perfect picture clicked.

I read about this gem on Tripadvisor before my mom and I went to Barcelona and I am SO glad that I did! We probably wouldn't have happened upon it otherwise, and it got us exploring some really neat streets.

But this is about the photo shoot. Which went how all the other positive reviews described it. The woman picked out some outfits for us and got us lots of fun accessories, then posed us (thank goodness!). After a few photos, she had us take a look and then took some more. We picked our favorite and got some prints! While they were printing, another man who works at the store took some more fun photos with our own camera. We had such a blast and will always treasure this souvenir from our trip together!

My Fiancé found out about this on Trip advisor and we decided we would go for lols! It wasn't busy only one other couple in front so not a long wait. The staff are nice and friendly. The dressing up and photo shoot was fun. The lady is very helpful as she tells you exactly where and how to stand to get the best shot. We are very happy with our photo in will be displaying it proudly at home! :)
Do not miss this hidden gem!

After reading all the reviews we were so excited to do this and it was a must do for us on our trip to Barcelona. It is easy to find from the Jaume I metro station on the yellow line. However, we were a bit disappointed with our experience. It was very rushed and when we got there, there was just a man who didn't speak any English. He then called a woman who was friendly but couldn't seem to get rid of us fast enough. The photo was okay but she only took 2 photos in the same pose and wanted us to pick one and then change straight away so we didn't have any time to take photos with our own camera. My hair was partially covering my face which I didn't know about and it was all far too rushed which made it awkward. Me and my boyfriend love things like this but sadly, we were really disappointed with our experience and our photo, especially after other people had such a good time.

First of all we would like to offer our apologies for your experience. Nevertheless, we would love to point out some things about our business: there’s no doubt that La Casa Vella is a studio. However, the customers will not get a complete photo session, but just a funny photo souvenir. Therefore, we spend around 20 minutes with every couple, and more with larger groups (this includes dressing up over your own clothes, having your picture taken and getting changed.) The photographer always takes a couple of pictures first in the pose she considers the best and then she shows the customers the result. Also, she zooms in the picture and if the customer is not happy with the result she takes more photos and even changes the pose if requested. When the client picks one of the pictures, it is understood that he likes the result. Otherwise, they always ask for another snapshot. As per their own pictures, all the customers are allowed to take pictures with their cameras and phones while they get dressed or right before they get changed, but it is their choice and always ask for permission, and it is never denied. Your experience was probably a combination of circumstances and miscommunication, so I encourage you to visit us next time you come to Barcelona and the result won’t be disappointing that time!
