Modernism, is an architectural movement that was born in the late 19th century until the late 20th century and has left an indelible mark on the urban landscape of this city.
In Barcelona as well as in the big cities are buildings and monuments that become universal emblems. This trip will allow us to visit the great architectural works of that time and know their representatives and the history that accompanies this movement.
We will also visit the city to appreciate the modernist movement in its most popular expression and in the use of decorative elements increasingly extinct due to the growth and the transformation of the city.
