Torre Bellesguard and Viaduct
The Casa Bellesguard stands at the foot of the Collserola Ridge, on a site which boasts magnificent views of Barcelona. The building’s medieval past inspired Gaudí when he designed this innovative, but essentially neo-Gothic house, which has a curious viaduct next to it.
It stands on the site of a castle built by King Martin the Humane, a member of the Catalan royal dynasty who adopted it as his home in 1410.
The house evokes medieval times, resembling a castle from the outside, with towers and battlements, although Gaudí’s imprint is visible.
The house is private property and surrounded by gardens. Nearby, in Carrer Bellesguard, is the viaduct designed by Gaudí as a containing wall. The stone arches and sloping angle remind us of the Park Güell, and bear Gaudí’s unmistakeable imprint.
