Residence of the Arnús bankers family, this estate -also known as “el Pinar” (“the Pine Grove”)- was designed by the inevitable Enric Sagnier i Villavecchia in 1903. A little further on is the estate caretakers’ house, which is also in Neo-Gothic style. This mansion provides one of the typical night sites of this district: when floodlit, it appears like a castle out of a fairy tale.

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.
