150th anniversary of Puig i CadafalchMain events 2017, Exhibitions and activities
2017

Among the pantheon of modernista architects responsible for many of the elegantly splendid buildings around the city, Josep Puig i Cadafalch is undoubtedly one of the stars. Several of his Barcelona works are unmissable highlights of that movement's legacy: Casa Amatller, Casa de les Punxes, Palau Baró de Quadras and Casa Martí, home to Els Quatre Gats café, a popular meeting-place for artists and intellectuals at the turn of the 20th century, and Casa Ramona, which is now home to the CaixaForum cultural centre. But Puig i Cadafalch wasn't just an architect: he was also a politician, an archaeologist and expert in Roman art, and director of the Institute of Catalan Studies. In the 150th anniversary of his birth, 2017 will see a range of activities related to his life and work in both Barcelona and his nearby home town of Mataró. Exhibitions, conferences and guided tours are just part of the plans for what promises to be a memorable celebration of architecture.

"A tribute to this architect, politician and archaeologist who was one of Barcelona's most influential figures. His art nouveau, or modernista, landmarks are must-see attractions. You'll be able to enjoy walking tours, exhibitions and talks about Puig i Cadafalch and his works."
