The building is one of the most important architectural works by Josep Puig i Cadafalch in Barcelona.
This October sees the 150th anniversary of the birth of Josep Puig i Cadafalch, one of the leading exponents of Catalan modernist architecture. It is, therefore, an excellent moment to explore some of the beautiful buildings that he designed in Barcelona. To that end, the organization Cases Singulars is offering a guided visit to Palau Macaya at 5.30 on Friday 27 October and on 1 and 29 December.
Palau or Casa Macaya is located at number 108 Passeig de Sant Joan. It dates from the year 1901 and has been catalogued as a building with special heritage status. It was designed as a private residence on commission from Romà Macaya, who lived there on the first floor with his wife and two children. The building’s striking white façade showcases a number of the signature details of Catalan modernism such as sculptural stone work, sgraffiti, a rostrum and wrought iron elements. Those who join the visit will also have the opportunity to explore the interior, with its rich ornamentation. The building belongs to "la Caixa" Welfare Projects.
