Josep Puig i Cadafalch (1867 – 1956) is undoubtedly one of the most important architects of Catalan modernism. If we take into account the modernist triad, Antoni Gaudí, Domènech i Muntaner and Josep Puig i Cadafalch, we can deduce that the latest one deserves a separate chapter, as he was the only one who stood out in various branches of knowledge. Precisely, thanks to these three magnificent figures there is no doubt that the modernist architecture in Barcelona is one of the richest in Europe.

Puig i Cadafalch’s architecture is especially prominent if we take into account how the Medieval past inspired him, the beauty of his technical solutions and his particular reinterpretation of modernism.
