Lesser-known Modernista jewels


If you can’t face another trip to the Sagrada Familia with visiting family, it’s time to take them off the beaten track and explore some of the city’s lesser-known Modernista architecture. Beyond the star attractions, Barcelona is also home to a wealth of lesser-known Modernista heritage that the city is working hard at renovating and opening to the public: in the last year three more buildings opened their ornate doors to the public. There are no long queues in the sun to enter these living museums, just a chance to take in some outstanding design and craftsmanship at your own leisurely pace, or as part of a small tour group. The Ruta del Modernisme (www.rutadelmodernisme.com) has a detailed map of 115 heritage points in the city, of which 20 are open to inside viewing.
