More Modernisme?!?!

BCN is proud of its Modernisme – as well they should be!  Modernisme is the mix of art and Catalan identity; while the post-impressionist era was searching for the next BIG art movement, Barcelona was creating architectural masterpieces known for their aesthetics and practicality.  After a visit to Hospital Sant Pau (a functional 48-pavilion hospital made entirely of Modernisme buildings), I learned of the “Ruta de Modernisme” (Modernisme Route), a 112-building self-guided walking tour of BCN’s Modernisme buildings.  I present some of the highlights here: all center-city (the Eixample District, where I would die to live), all still functioning as offices or cultural centers, each with their own unique story and design.
