Casa Comas d’Argemir

Josep Vilaseca i Casanovas
Barcelona (1848) - (1910)

A work designed by Josep Vilaseca i Casanovas in 1904 that is worthy of attention. From the street one can see its façade in the form of a semi-ellipse, topped with a wrought iron railing with the initials of the owners’ names, and decorated with ceramics and discreet sgraffito work around the windows, decorated with lion heads, and the turret, crowned with a pointed dome adorned with blue trencadís.

The Barcelona Modernisme Route is an itinerary that takes you through the Barcelona of Gaudí, Domènech i Montaner and Puig i Cadafalch, the architects who, together with others, made Barcelona the world capital of Modernisme. This Route enables you to get to know thoroughly impressive palatial residences, amazing houses, the temple that has become a symbol of the city and a huge hospital, but it also includes humbler and more everyday buildings and items such as chemists’, shops, lampposts and benches - modernist works which show that Art Nouveau put down strong roots in Barcelona and today Modernisme is still an art that is alive and part of life in the city.

The Guidebook of Barcelona Modernisme Route can be acquired in our centers of Modernisme.
