It is in the so-called Manzana de la discordia, because there are other houses in addition to this building of other modernist architects: the house Amatller, Casa Lleó Morera, Casa Mulleras and Casa Josefina Bonet Coquillat. The construction took place between 1904 and 1906. Gaudí designed the project to remodel the Casa Batlló at age 52. by then he had already overcome the historicist styles of the 19th century, and his architectural style had transcended to reflect a personal vision of architecture, of great originality and innovation. However, in Gaudi’s works, the design of the whole does not deprive the building concept of functionality. In this sense, it is important to highlight the importance given to both lighting and ventilation. To this end, a large central courtyard was set up in the center of the building, which was ventilation to the service rooms. While the living rooms and bedrooms overlooked the façade

It is an emblematic walk of the city of Barcelona that runs between the square of Catalonia, principal center of the city, and the old port. The walk is full of people by day and late into the night. It is dotted with newsagents, flowers and others for deciding to replace the old stands of small animals, street performers, coffee shops, restaurants and shops. Near the port, they usually install flea markets, as well as painters and artists. Strolling along La Rambla you can see several buildings of interest, such as the Palace of the Virreina, as well as the market of La Boqueria and the famous theater of the Liceo in which operas are represented. Formerly in the current Rambla the river d’en Malla passed through, that went down the current street Balmes and down the current Rambla to end at some point between the current plaça del Duc de Medinacelli and plaça de la Mercè. With the construction of the wall of the Raval in the 15th century the river was diverted.

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Blog, Traditions

This Catalan dance is a symbol of unity and pride in Barcelona. It consists of groups of people that take their hands together and lift them up; they dance giving small steps but precise, turning slowly while the people join to make the circle larger. The Catalan dance is complemented by a “cobla” a small group of musicians that accompany the dance with a selection of wind instruments directed by the “flaviol”, a type of flute, while the tambourine marks the rhythm. The best moment to watch an authentic Sardana is in a festival. The Festival Focs of Sant Joan on June 24th is an example.

The expiatory temple of the Sagrada Familia, is a catholic basilica in Barcelona designed by the architect Antonio Gaudí. Initiated in 1882, it is still under construction. It’s a Gaud’s master project, and the maximum exponent of the modern Catalan architecture. It is one of the most visited monuments in Spain, together with el Museo del Prado and the Alhambra in Granada, and it is the church most visited in Europe after the San Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican. Since the beginning the Sagrada Familia has been financed with charities and donations, what originated that in several occasions the works were slowed down or even stopped by the lack of contributions. By then, in 1905 the poet Joan Maragall wrote an article titled “Una gràcia de caritat”, to call the public’s attention to collaborate with the construction of the temple. While Gaudi was alive the crypt, the apse and the façade of the “Nacimiento” were the only things completed. The architect only got to see one of the towers crowned before his death, the San Bernabé. After his death, his helper Domènec Sugrañes was the one in charge (during the years 1926-1936), who finished the three towers left in the […]

Current studies accept the hypothesis that it was built on an ancient amphitheater or Roman arenas. The construction started in 1329. It was financed by the neighbors of the port and la Ribera, for which was agreed that it would belong exclusively to them. This construction stands out with the one of the cathedral that was constructed in those dates and that was associated to the monarchy, the nobility and the high clergy. It seems that the whole of the Ribera population actively participated in the construction, which carried the enormous stones destined to the construction of the church from the royal quarry of Montjuïc and from the beaches where the ships that had brought them to Barcelona, until the very square of the Borne, loading them in their backs, one by one. The main door of the church honors the coffins that helped its construction. The walls, the side chapels and the facade were finished around the year 1350. In 1379, near the end of the fourth section of vaults, the scaffolds burned and the stones suffered major damages. On November 3rd 1383, the last part of the vault was placed, and on August 15th of the following year […]
