Description

Join your guide on a Wednesday for a private tour of Palau Baró de Quadras, one of the finest examples of Catalan Modernism. Tour the beautiful insides, designed in the style of a gothic Catalan palace!

Josep Puig i Cadafalch was commissioned to refurbish a residential block on carrer del Rosselló in 1900 by the Baron de Quadras, and being somewhat ambitious he gave the building two totally different facades, one on Diagonal and the other on carrer del Roselló!

Note architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch's neo-Gothic staircase, wrought-iron entrance, and the medieval touches - such as Saint George, the patron of Catalonia, slaying his famous dragon.

Soak up the Modernist bonanza here, including mosaics, sgraffito work, and multicolored Arabesque woodwork, as well as the sculptures by Eusebi Arnau and Alfons Juyol.

This was an interesting tour. You could really see the guide was enjoying her job and wanted to ifect the audience with her own enthusiasm for the house, it's history and the history of Barcelona. Unfortunately, not all the original interiors have been preserved and almost no furniture, now it also houses offices of a working institution, so you cannot see the house as it really was before. However, the guide woudl show you photographs from the past so you could picture how the rooms used to look. SHe also explained a lot about how the house was built and why, how it reflected the social strata at that time, what nifty designs the architect implemented when building it to compensate for varios limitations that existed, etc. Really worth an hour of your time and certainly not as crouded as visits to other great houses of Barcelona.

Nos encantó este Palau en todos los aspectos, tanto arquitectónicamente como por la historia de la familia Quadras contada en visita guiada de la mano de Nuria, una chica simpatiquísima que nos hizo la visita muy agradable y amena. Al ser este Palau sede del Instituto Ramón Llull, hay salas de uso privado u oficinas que no se pueden visitar, y hay otras que estan acondicionadas para el uso propio de los eventos que organiza el Instituto, pero aun asi es preciosa de ver.
Pero hay un pero... la lampara moderna circular que hay en el salón principal afea muchiiiiiiiiiisimo aunque sea muy funcional para los eventos. Seguro que hay alguna alternativa para quitar esa "cosa" que choca totalmente con el entorno de la sala y que impide ver los techos decorados y poder teletransportarte a aquella epoca. Es como si entras en los aposentos reales de Luis XIV en Versailles y te encuentras una cama MALM de Ikea. No pega ni con cola.

Bien organizada, excelente guía, a pesar del retraso imputable a que había estudiantes que debían realizar un trabajo sobre el edificio. Esto retraso casi 20 minutos la entrada de nuestro grupo. Cumplimos puntuales con la hora de entrada, nos gustaría... haber esperado menos. Teníamos otros compromisos,.
