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.

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
