Thursday’s Special: PICK A WORD IN APRIL

Casa Amatller (Josep Puig i Cadafalch) is next door to two other Art Nouveau houses on Passeig de Gràcia, between Aragó and Consell de Cent streets in the Eixample district of Barcelona.

On the left is the Lleó i Morera House by Lluís Domènech i Montaner – he of the Sant Pau complex that I am currently blogging about, and on the right is the Batlló House by Antoni Gaudí.

Mansana de la Discòrdia or Block of Discord, is the name given to the block, (click on the link to discover the reason) where these exquisite examples of Modernist architecture are located.

I felt that this beautiful building with its projecting balconies and gargoyles and arresting stone sculptures and ceramic tiles would be perfect for Paula’s Word challenge this week.

I’ll try and find an excuse to post some pictures of the other house, but if you want to have a look inside as well as out then visit Casa Lleó i Morera .

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.
