    Catalan Modernisme: Casa Comalat

    If you liked yesterday´s butterfly you surely will enjoy watching Casa
    , one of the most spectacular houses representing Catalan modernisme built from 1909 to 1911 by Salvador Valeri i Pupurull.
    Imagine yourself walking along Avinguda Diagonal near Passeig de Gràcia, you get to number 442, come across a breathtaking building with these elaborate balconies and impossible design windows, you take some good pictures and go around the block for something to drink, let´s say at carrer Còrsega right behind. You wouldn´t believe your eyes, the same Casa Comalat appears again with a completely different look: a polychome rear façade with wooden modernist balconies and wonderful ceramic work. There you go thirsty again for another half hour!
    Tomorrow as a second chapter we will admire the main façade...
