Owner description: Mosaiccos offers classes, tours and cultural and enjoyable activities for children (>3years), families, adults, young people and seniors. You can create your own souvenir just like Antonio Gaudi! In the "Experiencia Gaudi," you will learn the revolutionary technique of Gaudi, the “TRENCADIS” which can be found all over Barcelona's main monuments: La Pedrera, Casa Batllo, Parque Guell, and Sagrada Familia, among others. You will learn the basics of this mosaic techniques, learn to handle tools, choose your design, and create your first masterpiece of trencadis-mosaic: a photo frame, salamander, or another object. The " Experiencia Gaudi" will be an unforgettable, special, and unique reminder of Gaudi's Barcelona to bring home. The price depends on the object and length of the classes (From 1 hour), the standard time is two hours. Mosaiccos also organizes cultural and guided tours. Skip the long ticket lines, as we also offer tickets here for "Casa Batllo," "La Colonia Guell," and the "Gaudi Experience." In our shop, all products for sale are designed and handmade here in our workshop, inspired by the masterworks of Gaudi..

“Create your version of Gaudi”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

Based on TripAdvisor reviews, our family of four visited Mosaiccos as part of a day in the El Born district. The staff were friendly, helpful and accommodating. I expected hordes based on the TripAdvisor ranking, but we were the only people in the shop for at least an hour.

We paid less than we expected for more than an hour of cutting and assembling stain glass shards onto our tiles. It was a great way to relate to the Gaudi windows we saw in Sagrada Famila. Two other families came in while we were there, but we never felt rushed.

Our family consisted of two teenage daughters, so this is an activity and experience that will appeal to older people, not just kids. They do have projects available for all ages. Highly recommend! Create your own art to remember Barcelona.

“BEST time spent making a priceless souvenir from Barcelona!”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

Thank you Angelika for all your help in creating these priceless memories for me, my daughter (age 11) and our family! We had never done mosaics before...but this was so fun! We spent around 2 hours together, chatting, being creative and trying something new. This was well worth the trip! Go at the beginning of your trip to Barcelona so that there is enough time to have your work of art grouted and dry! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

“Highly recommend”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

Spent a lovely couple of hours here with our 2 children, 8 and 5 making beautiful mosaic boxes. Kids enjoyed it as much as we did and the end product is truly beautiful.
The owner, Angelika was most helpful and very accommodating which made the whole experience a delight. It's well worth it.

“A fantastic afternoon”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

We spent a lovely afternoon making mosaics which are truly beautiful, despite some moments of frustration our lovely host managed to calm us down and bring out an artistic streak in the family which we didn't realise existed.

“Excellent activity for the whole family”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

Our daughter and son loved their experience here. It is the perfect activity for children or adults and it is a lovely hand made souvenir to take home from Barcelona. We made two hearts and a gecko which we plan to frame now that are home. Also, Angelika is a truly lovely person. It started raining in the afternoon as we finished our activity and she kindly lent us one of her own umbrellas which was so kind. Highly recommended. The trip advisor rating is absolutely correct.
