The so-called Catalan modernism has reached different facets of life in Barcelona, mainly because of art, sculpture, and especially architecture. Thanks to the highly valued and important Catalan architects, we have witnessed works that have lasted for centuries and have been transformed into true Barcelona city icons.
Among the names of these great modernist architects are: Enric Sagnier, Josep Maria Jujol, Elias Rogent, Josep Puig i Cadafalch, Lluís Domènech i Montaner, Josep Puig i Cadafalch, Joan Rubió, and many others.
Among the centennial façades, the important examples of modernism, which can be found in Eixample, are the signatures of great Catalan architects and well-known names of the bourgeoisie of the city.
The most important concentration of modernist buildings in Barcelona is in an area called “cuadrado de oro”, or "quadrat d'Or", within the Eixample district.
