Most people do not really notice this beautiful Modernista building because it is located right next to Antoni Gaudí's Casa Batlló, however it is a stunning architectural masterpiece in its own right. It was designed by Puig i Cadafalch and features the work of sculptors such as Eusebi Arnau. Combining both neo-Gothic and Modernista elements, it was inspired by the Dutch houses with their triangular shaped facades. Unlike some of Gaudí's houses, this building is free to enter and visitors can look around its stunning lobby, view the art exhibits on the first floor and visit the newly opened chocolate shop.
This charming and well-lit supermarket chain is unique as a supermarket "without middlemen", produce and products are for the most part brought directly from the farmer to the store and are produced in farms in Catalonia. There are multiple locations in Barcelona, although the Passeig de Grácia is perhaps the most centrally located for tourists with locavore tendencies.
Quite a distinctive building, but there is nothing interesting around it, a bit far from the subway station
The Amatye House is right next to the Battjo House. The iconic triangular roof reveals the identity of the owner of the chocolatier. The appearance is relatively low-key, but the intricately decorated windows are also very eye-catching. It is open to visit on the whole hour. Those who like architecture are definitely worth buying tickets to see inside. Different designers have different styles, and the luxurious interior space is worth the price.
