Other modernists in Barcelona

Art and culture route
Modernism in Barcelona is as prolific as the buildings. Beyond the genius of Gaudí, there are dozens of buildings full of symbolism, colour and fantasy.

In the splendour of the bourgeoisie of the 19th century, Modernism emerged and reached its creative zenith. L'Eixample is a good example, with its façades of perennial beauty, although there are also examples of this style in many other places.

The Casa Amatller, within the "manzana de la discordia", is a wonderful building by Puig i Cadafalch, in Neo-Gothic style and with outstanding staggered finishes. In this block, you can also find the Casa Lleó i Morera, by Lluís Domènech i Muntaner.

At the end of the Passeig de Gràcia you can find work from the same artist, the Casa Fuster, which is now home to a luxury hotel. Following the Diagonal, you will reach the Baró de Quadras Palace, a building of exquisite taste, by Puig i Cadafalch, which is reminiscent of a Neo-gothic palace.

From there, you can go to the spectacular Gothic Castle of Casa Terrades, by the same architect, and better known as the Casa de les Punxes due to its pointed towers. Very close to the Sagrada Familia is a place that is a must to visit, the majestic Modernist Site of Sant Pau, designed by Domènech i Muntaner as a city-garden for the sick.

The route ends at the Palau de la Música Catalana, the most beautiful modernist building in the world; enjoying a concert in the masterpiece by Domènech i Muntaner is a unique pleasure.
