Palau Macaya

An incredible and pretty unknown building from 1902 that was designed by Puig i Cadafalch and commissioned by Romà Macaya, a wealthy man from Barcelona who was in the cotton trading business. It contains a lot of similarities with another great building from the same architect: Casa Amatller: - similar window shapes - similar decoration patterns - similar materials used Today the building belongs to a private foundation, however the interior of the building is open and, once a month, it is possible to visit with a private tour organized by the same private foundation.
