Finca San Salvador

Josep M. Jujol i Gibert
Tarragona (1879) - Barcelona (1949)

Built by Jujol in 1909 and used for years as the bottling plant of Font Radial, a natural spring discovered by chance when work was done on the hill. Jujol never actually finished this project, but he did complete a garden of small terraces adapted to the steep terrain and a series of artificial grottoes to reach the water source. The Barcelona Urban Landscape Institute began to draft a restoration and rehabilitation project for this peculiar place in 2004.

Get the Guidebook of Barcelona Modernisme Route

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.
