Modernism is one of the principal attractions of Barcelona, to the extent that many of the city’s modernist buildings are acknowledged by UNESCO as World Heritage sites. The route starts in the old town, Ciutat Vella, where you can find the incomparable Palau de la Música Catalana, full of lights and colours, that is still a cultural asset, open to the world. Its halls and areas host concerts of all genres and styles, cultural, social and business events, congresses, conferences, exhibitions, etc. Continuing with Casa Marti the building with its medieval-style exterior, invites us to step into its cosy interior which was the meeting place for the intellectuals of modernist Barcelona, at the end of the 19th century.
On the ground floor of the Casa Martí you will find the café-restaurant “Els Quatre Gats”, which stands on the site of the original café, inn and literary circle founded by Pere Romeu, Santiago Rusiñol and Ramón Cases. Finally find out some of the key names at Museum of Catalan Modernism such as Rusiñol, Casas, Llimona, Gaudí, Arnau and Anglada-Camarasa. Their works and those of around forty artists from this movement are now installed in the Museum of Catalan Modernism. A visit to Barcelona would be incomplete if you missed the main Catalan Art Nouveau, or "modernisme" sights.
