Farmacia Guinart


Founded in 1896, this pharmacy conserves virtually intact its modernist elements. On the facade you can see the work of wrought iron, with wavy shapes as a decorative motif, covering the same wood from the doors. These nowadays are totally of wood, but in origin the part inferior was of marble. You have to look at the ceramics, in yellow and blue, at the Xumetra de Sant Andreu furnaces.

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.
