Palau Macaya

Modernista Elegance

Casa Macaya

Designed in 1901 by Josep Puig i Cadafalch, with a Moorish touch and gold sgraffito on the façade and in the lovely courtyard. Eusebi Arnau sculpted the capitals; on one he added a man on a bicycle.

Casa Macaya (Barcelona)

Now owned by La Caixa bank, it was thoroughly restored in 2012 and is now used as the 'Espai Caixa' to promote dialogue and other good deeds. During working hours, you can get in to explore the ground floor and lovely courtyard.
