Discover the Roman Barcelona, discover the medieval history of the city, or delve into the era of the modernist geniuses can do only in the city of Barcelona. The Catalan capital have so many beautiful buildings that you can not look up if you go through their most emblematic neighbourhoods: buildings that go from Gothic to modernist, archaeological remains and ancient Barcino, which there are still vestiges and which occupied practically the same extension of the Gothic quarter in the center of the city. This beautiful area near the Cathedral of Barcelona, can also be found official buildings of the Government of Catalonia and the Barcelona History Museum. We must highlight this period Joan de Borgunya worked in the polychromy of images for the convent of Santa Catalina, decorations to fresco and preparatory drawings for rain coats, the pictorial decoration of the choir, the design of a stained glass window in the Cathedral of Barcelona. Modernism: the soul of Barcelona this time is characterized by a large creation of works in which Barcelona architects innovate many regarding its methods and working ceramics, the polychrome, wrought iron and stone, so the city becomes an open air museum.

Paseo de Gracia, between the streets of Aragon and Consell de Cent, is the main reflection of this work, called the Apple of discord, since it brings together three modernist buildings: the Casa Lleo Morera, Casa Amatller and Casa Batllo, designed by the greatest architects of the moment: Domenech i Muntaner, Puig i Cadafalch and Gaudi, respectively. Casa Mila (La Pedrera), Gaudi’s work is only a few steps. Only takes half an hour to walk around Passeig de Gracia, the most beautiful Street in the city, so do not hesitate in recorrer you it whole also highlight the work of Gaudi Park Guell, impressive and also belonging to modernism, and out of this style the impressive Sagrada Familia.
