Torre Bellesguard Gaudí

Torre Bellesguard Gaudí
  • East Route

La Torre Bellesguard was built to an Antoni Gaudí design between 1900 and 1909, using rectilinear forms rarely seen in his other works. He took his inspiration from the medieval castle of Martin I, also known as Martin the Humane, the last king of the Catalan dynasty of the House of Barcelona, who resided at Bellesguard until his death in 1410. Gaudí built a castle that was a blend of Catalan Art Nouveau and Gothic styles and restored the ruins of the medieval palace, which are now part of the estate’s grounds.
