Casa Calvet: Barcelona Balconies

Casa Calvet de Barcelona (1899) is one of Antoni Gaudí's earliest buildings. Some people consider it his most conservative work but it also contains markedly modern elements, such as the façade which terminates in a curve and the attic balconies, which look like something from a fairy tale. 

The ground floor now houses a restaurant. Read more about the history of this building here.

I would so love to visit Barcelona. I have a very sweet friend who lives there and I promised I would visit before I turned 70, alas life's challenges have prevented the visit. My boys and wives went there two years ago and had a blast...the architecture there is amazing.

I hope you are okay Rosemary, the weather/wind was so bad they had to shut down Grand Central Station. Please let us know the you are okay.

I hadn’t really thought about it, but I should have known you would be a Gaudí fan! 😊
