Catalan Modernisme: Palau del Baró de Quadras
© All Rights Reserved
Palau del Baró de Quadras at Avinguda Diagonal, 373 is one of the greatest exponents of Catalan Modernisme or Art Nouveau. Built in 1904 by Josep Puig i Cadafalch, the palace has a front façade combining Gothic and Plateresque, and a rear façade facing carrer Roselló which is a block of flats. Notice in the picture the abundance of gargoyles and floral adornments or the beautiful lamps in the Arabic-style interior. One of the details I find most interesting to admire is the ironwork of the front door. Palau Baró de Quadras is at present what is known as Casa Asia, a public institution promoting different projects in common with Asian countries. Exhibitions: Tuesday to Saturday 10am to 8pm, Sundays and holidays 10am to 2pm.
