A Gaudí undiscovered, his homage to Catalonia
Bellesguard Antoni Gaudí is a jewel of Catalan Modernism. A place to discover unspoilt and unique.
The Bellesguard tower was built by Antoni Gaudi between 1900 and 1909, the tower built with very straight angles was inspired in the medieval castle of Martin I the Humane, last king of the House of Barcelona, who lived in Bellesguard until his death in 1410. Gaudí built a castle mixing the modernist and gothic style and recovering the remains of the medieval palace which nowadays can be seen in the garden.
