  • If this city has inspired avant-gardists and artists so much, it is thanks to outstanding creators who transformed this city at the turn of the industrial revolution. Antoni Gaudí and its Sagrada Familia, Lluis Domenech i Montaner and its Palau de la Música Catalana, Josep Puig i Cadafalch and its Casa Amatller, Ildefons Cerdà and the extension of the Eixample district.
