Modernist Barcelona - Cya On The Road

Online tickets of Barcelona museums + Skip the LineThis is a specially designed route that leads the visitor around Barcelona’s finest examples of Catalan modernism. You’ll discover the works of well-known architects such as Antonio Gaudí, Josep Puig i Cadafalch and Lluís Domènech i Montaner. Catalan modernism, while part of a European-wide trend, acquired a distinct local flavor. This was primarily due to the development of the cultural differences that Catalonia – and particularly Barcelona – was experiencing, regarding Spanish culture. This was known as the Renaixença, or the resurgence of Catalan culture, at a time of major urban and industrial development. We can therefore say that Catalan modernism, as we will see during our tour, is an urban, bourgeois style. It was used by the wealthy bourgeoisie as a form of expressing, through their residences, their Catalan identity, wealth and class. During this tour, you will see highly original and unusual buildings such as Casa Batlló (Batlló House) and the Palau de la Música Catalana (Palace of Catalan Music). Above all, we will visit Gaudí’s masterpiece, the Sagrada Familia.Photo Parc Güell, Barcelona by Angela Llop is licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0
