On the way back to Plaza Moyua from the Guggenheim, we pass by this impressive building- it is one of the few examples of Art Nouveau in Bilbao. It was built between 1901-1904 by Luis Aladren, and is also known as Casa de Gaudi, as it is thought to resemble Gaudis style of architecture.

Its facade contains many balconies, with carved floral stonework. Granite and wrought iron are also utilised along with attractive glass windows and some pink and blue tiled panels.

The building is occupied in some apartments, while other rooms are used as company offices.

I was quite entranced by this building!
