Modernist buildings & monuments

This building (1904-1906) is a fantastic combination of colors and forms located on Passeig de Gràcia of Barcelona, on the island of houses known as the "apple of discord", because of the buildings of different architectural styles. Initially its owner, Josep Batllo, wanted to demolish the building, but in May 1904 he asked the City Council for a total reform of the house. Over the time, La Casa Batllo was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1969, a Cultural Interest by the Generalitat of Catalonia in 1987, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2005 and has received other major national and international awards. This emblematic building of Catalan modernism has become a myth of art, architecture and universal design of all time and is visited every year by about 1 million people.
