Passeig de Gracia is a leafy boulevard that fronts many architectural masterpieces and shopping indulgences.

Palau Robert was formerly a private residence completed in 1903. It was acquired by the Government of Catalonia in 1981, which has since been turned into an exhibition venue.

Completed in 1910, La Pedrera is yet another Gaudi masterpiece, with a wavy facade, wrought-iron balconies, and fairly-tale chimneys.

Casa Batll? was built between 1875-7. In 1900, Josep Batll? Casanovas commissioned Gaud? to undertake works that were initially intended to demolish the existing building for a new structure. In 1904, he changed his mind and opted for a reburfishment.

Gaudi's chimney designs are modeled after the Catalan tradition of mushroom-picking.

It's hard to believe these ultra-modern ceiling lights are a century old.

Casa Asia promotes cultural exchange between Spain and Asia. Its headquarters is located in a historic Modernist building along the Diagonal, near Passeig de Gracia. However, the interior decor was not really Asian.

The top floor features an open area to relax and absorb the views.
