While I love Guadi, there is more to modernism than Guadi and this is one of two spectacular sights by Domenech i Montaner. It is an great functioning building but more important than only function, its exterior and interior are incredible. Words will not do...More

Taking the tour was one way to see this gorgeous Moderniste interior, but maybe not the best way. It is quite pricey while many of the concerts presented are quite reasonable and would add the acoustic dimension. Our guide was very knowledgeable, as an architect...More

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
