Modernism and industrialization

This itinerary will allow visitors to discover the shops, houses and factories that were built in Badalona in accordance with this artistic style, which extended all over Europe between the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century. The visit will lead us to explore the “Eixample’s” (Catalan word for extension) layout of the town, the construction of Sant Josep Church and the houses that the industrial bourgeoisie erected upon “La Plana del Corb” area. You will visit the most significant modernist landmarks of Badalona such as the Pavillard House, the Leon Leprevost house, the Gafarel.lo house, Can Casacuberta factory – which today houses a public library and Espai Betúlia – and G. De Andreis’ factory, also known as “La Llauna”.

The visits are aimed at compulsory and post compulsory secondary school groups, and the general public.
