10 Modernist Buildings You Should Know

Here is a small collection of Modernist buildings in the centre of Barcelona. They are, all, very close to the main touristic attractions such as Casa Battló or La Pedrera. I warmly recommend you add them to your map if you’re interesting in seeing just how playful and diverse the architecture of the beginning of the 20th century has been.
