Other modernists in Catalonia

Art and culture route
Catalonia has a spectacular Modernist mosaic that goes on and on and only ends in Barcelona. The legacy of different architects is present throughout the region.

The route starts in Manresa, where you can follow a Modernist route which includes the Farmàcia Esteve and the Quiosc de l'Arpa, by Josep Firmat. 

Reus is another of the towns of Modernist interest. Beyond the Gaudí Centre, Gaudí's birthplace has modernist references that include the Institut Pere Mata, the Casa Navàs, the Casa Rull and the Casa Gasull. The towns of Mataró and Argentona have a Modernist route dedicated to the brilliant architect Puig i Cadafalch, that includes his summer house, the El Rengle market, the Casa Coll i Regàs, the Casa Parera and the Casa Garí, all marked with a Modernist character. 

The Vallès Oriental region has points of architectural interest: in La Garriga you can do the route of the architect M. J. Raspall and visit his masterpiece, l'Illa Raspall, declared of National Interest. 

The route of this architect and of other Modernist buildings continues in Granollers, where important residential and public buildings have been conserved, Cardedeu and its magnificent Modernist towers surrounded by gardens, Figaró and l'Ametlla. Finally, you must visit Terrassa, with its "Terrassa, industrial and modernist", Sitges, meeting place for famous modernists in the Cau Ferrat, and Vilafranca del Penedès, which also has a Modernist route.

The wine cathedrals

The wine cathedrals are bodegas that were built following the modernist rules with the appearance of cathedrals, especially in respect to the size. Many of them can be visited today (even as restaurants and tourist resorts), such as Pinell de Brai, l'Espluga de Francolí, Falset and Igualada.
