Fodor's Review

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

Built by Palau de Música architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner as the café and restaurant for the 1888 Universal Exposition, the building was named in honor of a popular mid-19th-century comedy written by the father of Catalan theater, Serafí Pitarra. An arresting building that greets you on the right entering the Ciutadella from Passeig Lluís Companys, it has exposed brickwork and visible iron supports, both radical innovations at the time. Domènech i Muntaner's building later became an arts-and-crafts workshop where Moderniste architects met to experiment with traditional crafts and to exchange ideas. It now holds Barcelona's Museu de Ciències Naturals/Museu de Zoologia (Zoology Museum).
