We start!


Antoni Gaudí, Josep Puig i Cadafalch and Montaner are three of the great exponents of Modernism in Catalonia. This guided tour allows you to explore his life and work. We started in the city of Mataró where we will visit the house Coll i Regàs by Josep Puig i Cadafalch and the cotton bleaching house and first work of Antoni Gaudí.

The Coll i Regàs House

On May 12, 1897, Pere Comas, paleta, a resident of Mataró, requested permission from the City Council of Mataró to completely renovate houses no. 55 and 57 of the street of Argentona, the two houses that Joaquim Coll i Regàs had acquired the previous year. Although the text of the license application, the work consisted of the demolition of the two existing houses and the construction of a new building, as expressly noted in the project plans that accompany the request for the work permit.

Curiously, these plans of the project are signed by the architect Antoni Gallissà (Barcelona, 1861-1903). The reason is not known, although perhaps it could be related to the recent past of Puig i Cadafalch as municipal architect of Mataró (1892-1896). However, the authorship of Puig i Cadafalch as the designer of the work has always been manifest, and is confirmed in the monograph "La oeuvre de Puig y Cadafalch" published in 1904 in Barcelona, which includes the entirety of the architect's work from the beginning of his work until 1904.

The project includes a four-story building, basement, ground floor, first floor and loft, all built again. The plans of the project include the façade, an outline of the section and the ground and floor floors; neither the basement floor nor the attic floor are listed.

The planning followed the tradition of the houses of the urban bourgeoisie of Mataró, and in this sense it is the only house built in the city in modernist times.

The visit will continue at Nau Gaudí de Mataró.

The Nau Gaudí of Mataró

r227_naugaudi It is the first work built by the architect Antoni Gaudí. The result of a much larger and more ambitious project, the building is the only witness that has survived to the present day of the factory premises of the Sociedad Cooperativa Obrera Mataronense, conceived between 1878 and 1883.

Considered the starting point of the architect's creative process, the cooperative's cotton bleaching plant is notable for the importance of experimenting with parabolic arches, which were first used by Gaudí as structural elements. This architectural solution would later become a key and very representative element of Gaudí's work.

The visit will continue in Canet de Mar, in the Museum House of Montaner, among others.

The Montaner House Museum

It is a space formed by two buildings of great patrimonial interest: the Rocky Masia, a farmhouse of the seventeenth century, and the House Sunday h (1919), modernist style. The two buildings show the multifaceted career of the architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner (1849-1923), father of Catalan modernist architecture.

In the Masía Rocosa, which was the Montaner architecture workshop, the most professional aspect of the character is presented as an architect, editor, politician and intellectual. In the Domènech House, which was the house that he built for his family, the most intimate space of Montaner is shown. The reception is shared with the information and tourism office, there is also a space dedicated to the history of Canet de Mar, and a temporary exhibition hall. On the first floor, the tour goes through different spaces dedicated to the village festivities, the influence of the Lluís Domènech family, the history of the Domènech House and the family environment.

The meeting point of this route is at the City Hall of Mataró at 10am. Prior registration in the Tourism Office of MataróLe prix du trajet est de 16,5 € pour les groupes à partir de 15 personnes.
