Open shop under the name of La Puríssima in 1898, as a coffee roaster, which is currently kept in the hands of other owners as a grocery store. All exterior decoration is preserved, mainly highlighted by the signs and glazed advertising posters, especially the traditional one of "Anís del Mono". In the interior small modifications have been made, but the furniture where it was collected, the counter and the subsequent sideboards, all of them made of melis pine wood, with simple geometrical ornaments, are still kept.
A historic commercial establishment that opened in 1898 as a coffee roaster and rolled wafer manufacturer under the name of a nearby church, “La Puríssima”. The shop evolved to become one of the most famous Barcelona groceries, and features Modernista fire-tinted glazing signs that bring a cheerful touch to the façade, in particular the original advertisement for Anís del Mono, designed by Ramon Casas.

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.
