The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.

High décor is immediately evident. Lovely work in stone, windows, Gothic elements and little columns make for an absorbing built.

Emanating from 1901 when it was designed by architect Joan Rubió i Bellver for the importer of much in-demand American wood, Macari Golferichs.

Casa Golferichs is a quirky mansion on Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, close Rocafort metro station, and just opposite Tono Bagno design store. Although I’m told that it’s a Modernista building, I actually think it’s close to Neo-Gothic with it long strait lines, ribbed windows frames and mock medieval bay windows. True, there are the characteristic sumptuous ceramic tiles on the roofs of the arched entrance and house. It still looks like something like a building out of the middle ages, which I suppose is part of it’s charm.

If you have a love of Modernism or have time, then this is worth a look. Otherwise, there are plenty of buildings Modernism that are truly monumental and must-see in Barcelona.

Note: I only realised afterwards that this building was in fact also a museum with a mix of permanent and changing exhibitions and I only saw this building from the outside.

This house of Catalan Modernism can be found from the main street Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes. It was built in 1901. At the moment it is a civic center of the Eixample District.

We went out for our daily 6 k walk and just around the corner from our hotel we came across this amazing building.It was built in 1901 and was the family home of the Barcelona civil engineer until the spanish war It then became a university Then a religious school .Since 1989 it has been a civic centre and a childrens play centre .We walked past it again in the afternoon and by the noise coming from inside from the children it seems to be a very happy place.An absolutely beautiful building.Dont miss it.
