Beautiful decoration inside n outside. Worth to see
The Casa Lleó Morera 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 one building of the block awarded Barcelona's town council's Arts Building Annual Award (Concurso anual de edificios artísticos), obtained in 1906.[Unfortunately, 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.
Just Beautiful! A must see if you're in this beautiful city! 😊
An alternative take on modernism. Pretty and more ordely that Gaudi but lacks his boldness. One empty floor of an interesting building. Like many other places could have been so much better.
We went on the "express tour" (the shorter one) but our guide was fantastic at packing in many interesting details and giving us a good sense of how and why the rooms were decorated in a particular way, even though much of the furniture was removed by previous occupants. The ceilings and stained glass windows are stunning and the architect (Domenech i Montaner) also designed the Palau de la Musica Catalan so you can see some of the same stylistic ideas and use of light there. Also interesting to compare with Gaudi's Casa Battlo which is in the same block as Casa Lleo Morera and was built around the same time.
