A guide will offer information on the building’s history, the owners who commissioned its construction and the artistic details and singularities of each façade.

Bona tarda,

El meu nom és Sandra Sanz i voldria fer la ruta de les façanes de Puig i Cadafalch, amb la meva parella, Carles Juanola, el 17/06/2017.

Venim de Mataró i voldríem saber com fer per apuntar-nos a la ruta i si té algun cost.

Moltes gràcies per la seva atenció.
