Thank you!
A stroll around Barcelona, the world capital of Modernism
Between the 19th and 20th centuries in the centre of Barcelona, the architects of the Catalan Modernist movement created a variety of buildings for the bourgeoisie of the period. It could even be said that the work and art of Puig i Cadafalch, Doménech i Montaner and the world-famous Antoni Gaudí was instrumental in Barcelona's transformation into the capital of the western Mediterranean that it is today.

  • I personally prefere the classical Barcelona. I don't like this tower, and I can't see what it has to do with the Mountains of Montserrat. Beautiful show Michaela. Multumesc!

  • Aunque la Torre Agbar se ha convertido en icono arquitectónico de la ciudad para algunos el edificio es considerado como una broma de mal gusto ya que por su forma es evocadora de la imagen de un gran supositorio o de un enorme falo que emerge en medio de Barcelona. A pesar que el arquitecto Jean Nouvel desmintió que su obra tuviera ninguna reminiscencia sexual alegando que se inspiró en los característicos pináculos de la montaña de Montserrat yo me quedo con las casas de Passeig de Gràcia. Muchas gracias, Michaela por esta tan bonita presentación.

Currently it is at the junction of the city’s more important throughfares. The Avinguda Diagonal, Avinguda Meridiana and Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes. However it has become a large roundabout for a series of elevated highways. In recent revitalization efforts, new structures have been planned for the area around the Plaça de les Glòries.

Opened in 2005, it is located in the Poblenou neighborhood of Barcelona.
