1· Palau Güell
Businessman Eusebi Güell assigned the work to architect Antonio Gaudi with the intention of using it as a home. This building’s most notable room is the concert room, as it has a built-in organ.
The same room stands out for its height, reaching approximately three floors. For this reason, this central room is the most important point in the whole house.
In the year 2011 it opened its doors to the public eye. Have you been yet?
Location: Nou de la Rambla, 3-5
2· Casa Vicens
This work by the illustrious Antonio Gaudí, which was inaugurated in 1888, is one of the modernist buildings in Catalonia. It is in the Casa Vicens where we can find the first accessible roof, which stands out due to a small dome.
Its positive valuation meant that it was declared a UNESCO world heritage sitein 2005. When do you fancy visiting it the most?
Location: Carrer de les Carolines, 20
3· Hotel Casa Fuster
This prestigious hotel was made from the rehabilitation of a modernist building, the Casa Fuster. In this case, the person most responsible for the architectural work is the Catalan Lluís Domènech i Montaner.
But don’t think that this is an architect with little acclaim, as the truth is the complete opposite. Apart from having international recognition, another one of his works in the city is the Palau de la Música Catalana.
The material that stands out the most on this building is the marble, which is why for a long time it was considered one of the most expensive buildings in the whole of Barcelona.
Location: Paseo de Gràcia, 132
