The Modernist Barcelona of Domènech i Montaner Free Walking Tour
Overview of the tour in Barcelona
Everybody knows Gaudí, but Barcelona is a bunch of modernist buildings with a bunch of impressive ones like his, created by architects like Lluís Domènech I Montaner, in the tour that we dedicate this one. A key figure in this artistic current, with buildings, declared a World Heritage Site
We will begin by understanding the context in which Modernism arises, and in which, Domènech lives. We will continue, talking about his fundamental role in the Barcelona International Exhibition of 1888 and we will cross El Born to reach the Palau de la Música Catalana.
We will continue towards Paseo de Gracia, and we will see his work in the "Manzana de la Discordia", the Casa Lleò I Morera -by far, the doorman is not very nice-, and the Publishing House. Afterward, we will enter the Eixample to see the Palau Montaner, Casa Tomas, and we will finish in Casa Fuster, at the end of Paseo de Gracia.
During the tour we will comment on the rest of the buildings that we will not be able to visit, such as the Hospital de Sant Pau I Santa Creu or his works in Canet de Mar, Reus, or Comillas, accompanying the explanations with photos and drawings to better understand everything we talk about.
This activity includes:
- Palau de la Música Catalana
- Castle of Tres Dragons
- Passeig de Gràcia
- Hotel Casa Fuster
Monument Rius i Taulet
I will be in front of the monument to Rius I Taulet, at the end of Paseo de Lluis Companys, in front of the entrance to Ciutadella Park. I will wear a black t-shirt with the "MODERN TOURS" logo.
Things to note
