Casa Amatller hotels
Casa Amatller may be strange at first glance, but the modernist structure is one of the most important buildings located in the famous Illa de la Discòrdia area of Barcelona, Spain. The building was designed by Josep Puig i Cadafalch in the late 19th century to be a home for wealthy chocolatier Antoni Amatller. The unique, modernist building is now considered a work of art and great lengths have been taken to preserve the original façade of the building that is laden with decorative sculpture and stonework meant to imitate the gothic designs of the 17th century.
- Stroll the Illa de la Discòrdia block of Barcelona and you will be treated to a number of modernist buildings including the Casa Amatller, Casa Lleó-Morera, and Casa Batlló.
- Get a close look at the doors on the left side of the asymmetrical façade to see the St. George with the Dragon Statue that was made by sculptor Eusebi Arnau.
- Visit Barcelona in the winter when the trees around Casa Amatller are barren, making it much easier to get a good look at the unique design of the roof.
The Illa de la Discòrdia is an official tourist attraction in Barcelona, and the entire block is cut-off to traffic, making it perfect to explore on foot. The best way to get there is by public transportation, and the Passeig de Gràcia station of the metro is just a short walk away from Casa Amatller. There are also several bus routes that pass through the area from the main station in central Barcelona, so just check a route map for directions. The buildings on this street feature intricate designs that are best viewed up-close to appreciate the detail.
