The Casa Lleó Morera (Catalan pronunciation: [ˈkazə ʎəˈo muˈɾeɾə]) is a building designed by noted modernisme architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner, located at Passeig de Gràcia 35 in the Eixample district of Barcelona. In 1902 Francesca Morera assigned Lluís Domènech i Montaner to remodel ancient "casa Rocamora", built in 1864. She died in 1904, and the building was named after her son, Albert Lleó i Morera. The building is located on the corner of Carrer del Consell de Cent, and is one of the three important buildings of Barcelona's Illa de la Discòrdia ("Block of Discord"), and it is the only building of the block awarded Barcelona's town council's Arts Building Annual Award (Concurso anual de edificios artísticos), obtained in 1906. The building lost some of its most representative elements, such as the tempietto on its top (now restored) and the ground floor and mezzanine's architectural sculpture.

The building is also known as the residence of Cuban-Catalan photographer Pau Audouard.

  • I actually dont know why this architect doesnt recieve the same recognition as Gaudi. All of his work that we saw in Barcelona was amazing.  more »

  • A beautiful building. Just stroll down de Gracia and keep your eyes open.
  • Beautiful, elegant building in the Paseo de Gràcia, a work of the known catalán architect Lluís Demènech i Montaner. This was constructed as a home for the Morera family whose name means mulberry, so motives of these fruits and trees were used in the decoration. The building suffered much damage due to war and commercialization and underwent several renovations as late as the year 2012.
  • It's worth a visit, totally
  • Another wonderful experience in Barcelona. I was lucky enough to go through this building, amazing.
