  • Join your private guide on a Wednesday to explore a Modernist masterpiece
  • See modernista and neo-gothic flares and the medieval touches throughout, including George and the dragon

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.

En la llegada no tuve ningún problema con la entrada y la visita ha sido fenomenal. La historia de Barcelona tiene muchas raíces de arquitectura, música, ciencia, pasado histórico, hallazgos, personalidad, y barrios con mucho encanto musical y gastronómico. Hay grandes personas que han dejado su legado artístico, científico o religioso. Tenemos mucha cultura y se refleja con todo su esplendor en los muchos barrios, museos, estadios, obras arquitectónicas, entidades, sociedades, industrias, negocios, etc que tantas personalidades han hecho realidad. Muchas gracias. Ana

Очень красивый дворец. Но на русском языке нет информации. Я выбрала экскурсию на испанском языке. Была одна. Гид показала и дала время на фото. Порекомендую тем, кого не смущает отсутствие русского языка. Понимаю, что поскольку там находиться Дом Азии и экскурсии проводит сотрудник, то нет возможности рассказывать на русском.

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.
