  • On the way from the Arc de Triomphe saw this elegant red building was built in 1897, the numbers directly above the year. One of the first objects of industrial modernism in Barcelona, Pere Falqués i Urpí created and most reminiscent of the best specimens of English art and crafts and neo-Gothic. Beautiful columns and huge Windows, just a real Palace. I really enjoyed

  • Attracts look red brick building on the road from the Gare du Nord train station (now bus station) to Arc de Triomphe and further in Ciutadella Park. Built in the same style as that of a triumphal arch. Just a little less pomposity-powerhouse, not a Palace. Although, I think some palaces worse look! Style, like many built during this time buildings in Barcelona, you can determine how the Catalan modernism. Moreover this style in Europe at that time was only here in Barcelona.
