Modernism and Gaudí
Barcelona is one the world capitals of Modernism. Between the end of the 19th century and start of the 20th century, the city underwent a modernizing process that affected its urban development and artwork.
Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926), one of the most representative architects at the time, was the author of famous creations such as the Sagrada Família (Holy Family), Casa Batlló, La Pedrera or Parque Güell, 20 hectares of parkland located in the higher part of the city, where there are no straight lines. Everything is wavy, twisted and winding, creating a magical atmosphere with spectacular views of the city.
Five minutes walking distance from the Hotel is the Palau de la Música Catalana, one of the largest concert halls in the world. Lluís Domènech Montaner was responsible for creating this majestic modernist building. The spectacular natural light that floods the interior filters through a splendid glass dome.
