Dr. Andreu vs. Eusebi Güell: the garden city that triumphed

The Vil·la Florida civic centre is organizing an adapted itinerary for the International Day for People with Disabilities.

3 December was International Day for People with Disabilities, a day that was given over to reflecting on the topic, raising consciousness and reclaiming everybody’s rights to working and social inclusion. Many activities have been organized around that day and some will take place over the coming days. One of these activities is a cultural itinerary adapted for everyone called 'Dr. Andreu vs. Eusebi Güell: the garden city that triumphed'. The narrative theme on this route is the story of Salvador Andreu and Eusebi Güell. The former bought a plot of land in the foothills of Tibidabo to create a luxurious residential complex on both sides of an elegant avenue. This venture was very successful and quickly filled with private residences built by the top Catalan modernist architects of the moment. Close by that site, Eusebi Güell also bought a plot on the mountainside to build another luxurious residential complex: one that met with a very different fate.

The itinerary, which will take place at 10.30am on 12 December, will begin at the Vil·la Florida civic centre. The reasons for the success and failure of the two projects, the evolution of the new residential area and the confiscations of properties that took place during the Civil War will all be explained.

Participation is free, but you must book by contacting the civic centre at ccvilaflorida@gsl.cat.
