Covered in Asian inspired umbrella this building used to house a prominent umbrella shop. Its praised for its modernism and use of colour and delicate decorations on the side of the building. We hope you enjoy our hotel for family in Barcelona.
In 1883 the shop was redesigned with the colourful umbrella by Josep Vilaseca a few years before the 1888 Universal Exhibition. The Barcelonan government was expanding, renovating and investing in building new and interesting buildings throughout the city. During this time Modernism was growing and inspired the re-design of this building.
