Barcelona’s Swirling Modernisme Showcase

Barcelona's Eixample neighborhood is an architectural showcase for residents and tourists alike. Buildings adorned with Modernisme, the Catalan version of Art Nouveau, line the Block of Discord with colorful, leafy, flowing and blooming shapes, ending with Gaudí's triumphant Casa Milà (a.k.a. La Pedrera).
