The other Modernism

When we talk about the Modernist era the architect Antoni Gaudí and his fantastic creations in the capital of Catalunya immediately come to mind.  Nonetheless, we shouldn’t forget other masters of architecture from the same time period who have made an important mark on our history.

On this tour we will visit the most famous Modernist constructions and a few hidden jewels in the Barcelona Eixample, the neighbourhood that sprang up outside the city walls in the 19th century.

We will visit:

  • The Eixample neighbourhood with its interior courts.
  • Passeig de Gràcia, where we will discover some the Modernist architecture´s jewels (La Pedrera, casa Batlló, casa Amatller).
  • Antoni Gaudí’s Sagrada Familia
  • Domenech i Muntaner’s Hospital de Sant Pau

 

During the tour we will stop for a glass of cava or wine.
