Monument of Luís Doménech i Montaner "modernist and luxurious"

Some visit this building just as a sight, others use it as a scenery for movies such as Woody Allen for "Vicky Cristina Barcelona". And then there are the ones who have the privilege to accommodate themselves here during their stay at Barcelona. The hotel is located at the heart of the city at Paseo de Gracia, and is one of the most emblematic buildings of Modernism in Barcelona. It was built in 1908 by the famous architect "Luís Doménech i Montaner", and both the facade and the interiors boast the elegance and extravagance of the period. (more info >>>)
