Modernist Ceiling at C&A Pelayo in Barcelona

Catalan Modernisme: Ceiling at C&A Pelayo
© All Rights Reserved

You all know C&A: A department store with good prices and some nice stuff to buy (unless it has not been ransacked by clearance sales-o-holics). What nobody had told me was that I was going to come across with this beautiful modernista ceiling in white crowning what seems to be the attic or some upper gallery. The only thing I know is that the shop is located in carrer Pelayo, 54 and that it must have been an old modernist house like many in this area. If anyone can provide some more information I could post it somewhere. Here is another view of the ceiling.

I can't imagine such a beautiful ceiling in a department store. It looks more like it belongs in a church. Lovely lovely

A wonderful art nouveau panel, and in a shop too! Nice work Carlos.

Fans of Modernista architecture should also visit Novelda’s Casino on Avenida Reyes Católicos 75, and the extraordinary St Mary Magdalene’s Sanctuary, 3 km (2 miles) from Novelda on the Cerro de la Mola.
