Leaving Avinguda del Tibidabo, turn into Bosch i Alsina and keep going until you see COSMOCAIXA-MUSEU DE LA CIÈNCIA (106), (COSMOCAIXA-SCIENCE MUSEUM). The museum is partly housed in a Modernista building by Josep Domènech i Estapà, constructed between 1904 and 1909 as a home for the blind. CosmoCaixa Barcelona was inaugurated in September 2004 as a space designed for all manner of audiences, offering a wide range of scientific and educational activities, exhibitions, workshops, conferences, courses and discussions. Its new permanent Sala Univers space offers an interactive route that commences from the Big Bang and concludes by exploring the human brain and the last frontiers of knowledge. The Flooded Forest and Geological Wall are two of the centre’s other unique attractions. CosmoCaixa also has a planetarium, auditorium, conference rooms and spaces for children, while another outstanding space is its Plaça de la Ciència, a large public square that was opened to the public with the construction of the museum.

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.
