A new itinerary offers a tour of the buildings that the architect designed.
Following the success of last year’s Puig i Cadafalch in the Eixample itinerary, Cases Singulars have organized another route, which will take participants around building designed by the architect on and around the hillsides of Montjuïc.
At the moment four sessions have been scheduled: on 10 November, 1 December, 27 December and 3 January. The starting point for all four itineraries is the Venetian towers in Plaça Espanya and the starting time is 11am. Groups of 15 or more people can make their own tailored arrangements.
Puig i Cadafalch left behind an enduring legacy on Montjuïc, in part because he was commissioned to carry out an architectural and urban design project for the Barcelona International Exhibition in 1929, including the Casaramona factory, which is currently the headquarters of CaixaForum Barcelona, the four columns of Montjuïc and the palace of Alfonso XIII and Queen Victoria Eugenia. If you want to take the guided route, you will need to sign up in advance on the Singular Homes website.
Born in 1867, Josep Puig i Cadafalch, who died in 1956, did not just excel in the field of architecture, but was also an archeologist, historian, art historian, professor, and also served as a politician, becoming President of the Commonwealth of Catalonia. Among his most outstanding works in Barcelona are Casa Amatller, Casa de les Punxes and Palau Macaya.
