Thank you!
Casa Malagrida is a gorgeous building located in Passeig de Gràcia. It was constructed by Joaquim Codina Matalí between 1905-1908 in art nouveau style. The owner of this building was Manuel Malagrida Fontanet, a tobacco trader who made fortune in Argentina. Malagrida's bounds between Spain and Argentina are shown in the sculptural details, made by Pere Ricart. In the main entrance there are two emblematic birds of each of both countries: the Andean condor for Argentina and the Pyrenean eagle for Spain. There are other symbols as well, like the reliefs of Christopher Columbus and the general Mitre, in addition to two anthropomorphic representations of Spain -with crown- and Argentina -with Phrygian cap-.
With these symbols, Mr. Malagrida wanted to pay tribute to his personal feelings of brotherhood between both countries. There are other elements in the façade, like the forged iron of the balcony, and the slate dome at the top, with a weathervane which was originally gold. Unfortunately, it's not possible to visit the interior of Casa Malagrida, but one can appreciate a little part of it in the halls of two stores in the ground floor. In spite of its beauty, this building is often unnoticed, perhaps because in the next block we can see the well-known mansana de la discòrdia -the block of discord- with the Casa Lleó Morera, Casa Amatller, and Casa Batlló.
