Barcelona, a photo a day

Casa Fuster


La Casa Fuster. Should you be looking for a better place to stay on a romantic holiday in Barcelona, I suppose this is the place!
It is one of the best examples of modernism. Built in 1908 by Gaudi’s contemporary Lluis Domenech i Montaner, it was a gift from the Señor Fuster to his wife, with the underlying intention to make the city of Barcelona more beautiful. Nice guy!

Now, for the last 10 years, it has been a hotel. Click here for more info.

  12. Architecturally, it is similar in style to buildings designed by Guimard (of Paris Métro fame) in France in the same period.

    Nice!
