Cases Singulars proposes a new dramatised visit to this emblematic building in the Eixample, led by its first owners.
Palau Baró de Quadras is a building that lies slightly apart from Barcelona’s classic Catalan Modernist route. The fact that it is the headquarters of the Institut Ramon Llull means that to get in you have to pass through a security check, the reception desk, and it can only be visited at certain pre-arranged times. But it’s well worth the hassle. The building was designed by Josep Puig i Cadafalch for Manuel de Quadras i Feliu, one of the richest and most powerful industrialists in the Barcelona of the late 19th century, and stands out for its rich ornamentation, ceramics and Islamic influence – not to mention its majestic stairs.
Palau del Baró de Quadras can be visited every Wednesday and Saturday morning. But during one day per month, you can do it in a unique way, on a dramatised visit in which two actresses and an actor, all dressed in period costume, ceded by the Museum of Modernism, play the parts of the building’s governor, the cook and owner, and they will tell us all of the place’s secrets and architectural details.
The next visit will be on 15 December. The following visits are scheduled for 27 December and 3 January (usually on Fridays, but these, exceptionally, will be held on Wednesdays because they are Christmas evening visits with a glass of cava included).
