  Casa de los Botines
by pabertra

This building is one of the few works by Catalonian Architect, Antoni Gaudi, that lies outside of Barcelona. Gaudi is the most famous architect of the Modernisme movement in Spain. The restrained structure shows elements of his later style with its turrets and windows. Unfortunately, the building now holds bank offices and the interior is not accessible to the public, however it is still worth admiring from the outside. Many local artists congregate in front of this building to sell their paintings, making for a nice artistic atmosphere.
