The first official photographic procedure in history, the daguerreotype, was introduced in 1839 and the term photography was used for the first time, and in 1880 a photograph was printed for the first time by photomechanical means. From 1909 to 2009, three members of the Catalan family worked as photographers and left us a hundred years of testimony, which allows us to travel through the time and space of a particularly turbulent twentieth century.

This exhibition allows us to delve into the enormous legacy of Pere Català i Pic, Francesc Català-Roca and Pere Català i Roca, three photographers of the same lineage and three leading exponents of photography in Catalonia. His images are not only a testament to the artistic and cultural movements and currents that took place throughout the twentieth century, but they are also part of the iconography of the history of our country.

Pere Català i Pic (1889-1971), his daughter Maria Àurea (1920-1993) and their sons Francesc (1922-1998) and Pe

Suggested by Tiqets

The Sagrada Familia is the magnum opus of the famous Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí. The cathedral was the finale to his incredible Modernist career, and it has been under continuous construction since 1882. Over time, the so-called 'architect of God' dropped all his other work so that he could focus exclusively on this project, which he did until his untimely death in 1926. The Sagrada Familia is due to be finished in 2026, on the 100th anniversary of Gaudí's death. By that time, the construction of the Sagrada Familia will have taken 144 years.

Casa Batlló

Gaudí's masterpiece, Casa Batlló located in the heart of Barcelona, was built in 1877. In 1904, the wealthy Batlló family asked Gaudí to build another in its place. Instead, he decided to renovate the building and did so in his own inimitable style. With a wavy animalistic facade, brilliant colors, and thought-provoking whimsical features everywhere (check out the roof terrace), this is a Gaudí wonder.
