Fodor's Review

This neo-Mudejar art nouveau fortress, built to house a factory in 1911 by Josep Puig i Cadafalch (architect of Casa de les Punxes, Casa Amatller, Casa Martí, and Casa Quadras), now CaixaForum, is a center for art exhibits, concerts, lectures, and cultural events and well worth keeping an eye on in newspaper and magazine leisure listings for special exhibitions. The original brickwork is spectacular; the restoration is a brilliant example of the fusion of ultramodern design techniques with traditional (even art nouveau) architecture. The entryway was designed by Japanese architect Arata Isozaki, author of the nearby Palau Sant Jordi.
