Elegant mansion (1901) with a large patio, designed by the architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch. The Casa Macaya is of modernist style with influences of the civil Gothic and was decorated by several artists. As was usual at the time, the construction of the mansion was commissioned by the industrialist Roman Macaya Gibert. Casa Macaya stands out for its architectural beauty and the contrast between the apparent simplicity of the white of the facade and the windows decorated in stone. The stone sculptures are the work of Puig i Cadafalch's usual collaborators: Eusebi Arnau and Alfons Juyol. In the interior of the building, the large stone arches and the staircase decorated with floral motifs stand out.

It was declared a Cultural Asset of National Interest by the Generalitat de Catalunya on January 9, 1976. It currently houses the cultural center of "La Caixa", EspaiCaixa, a center for social and sustainable activities.
