Palau Baró de Quadras

Headquarters of Institut Ramon Llull

The Palau Baró de Quadras, originally built in 1882, was one of the first residences on Avinguda Diagonal. Manel Quadres i Feliu, the first Baron of Quadras, inherited the building from his father in 1901. The Baron commissioned the architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch for the house's renovation, which took place between 1903 and 1906. Puig i Cadafalch's neo-Gothic style is present in various building elements, particularly the Avinguda Diagonal façade, reminiscent of a medieval Barcelonan palace.

The Palau

Josep Puig i Cadafalch (1867-1956) was, with Antoni Gaudí and Lluís Domènech i Montaner, the leading architect of Catalan Modernisme. He renovates the Palau del Baró de Quadras between 1904 and 1906, at one of the most fruitful moments of his career.

The Palau opens to the public every Wednesday between 11 and 13h with specialized tours in three languages (Catalan, Spanish and English ) . You can also arrange visits for groups of at least 10 people, Monday through Friday, with previous booking.
