Farmàcia Casaus


Formerly Farmàcia Sañé and founded in 1901, this chemists’ shop maintains the original decoration on both the façade and the interior. The cladding of the façade has austere, geometric lines. The two entrances are made of wood, with simple garlands as a basic decorative motif, and bevelled glass etched with the same design. In the interior it still has the display cabinets and counter, though they have been adapted to present-day needs.

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.
