Have you ever wondered which houses are essential that you must see them in your visit to Barcelona? We bring you a selection of modernist houses in Barcelona that you must add to your essential checklist.

Casa Batlló

Located at number 43 Passeig de Gràcia, Casa Batlló does not leave the walker indifferent. Its lively colors and meticulous decoration invite you to visit it. This  is one of the Art Nouveau houses of the naturist period of Antoni Gaudí and one of his best-known works.

La Pedrera

Built between 1906 and 1912, La Pedrera is another of the icons of Passeig de Gràcia. It also belongs to the naturalistic period of the famous architect, as we can see from the decorative motifs on its façade. The marine motifs stand out in its colorful decoration.

Casa Vicens

Casa Vicens stands out for being the first house designed by Antoni Gaudí in Barcelona. This house was built between 1883 and 1885 and is considered one of the first works to inaugurate Art Nouveau houses in Catalonia.

Casa de les Punxes

Casa de les Punxes, revolutionary both artistically and technically, is the great work of Puig i Cadafalch. Located in the heart of Barcelona, between La Pedrera and La Sagrada Familia,  this Art Nouveau house is a key piece for understanding Catalan Art Nouveau. Its monumentality is unparalleled, it contains three houses in a single building with multiple floors.

Casa Felip

The least known and most sober of the five, Casa Felip by the architect Telmo Fernández Janot, was built between 1911 and 1913. Its style is considered modernist with “baroque” flavors. A small jewel as unknown as it is surprising.
