Casa Calvet is one of the early buildings designed by Antonio Gaudi, built for textile manufacturer Pere Màrtir Calvet in 1899.
Casa Calvet is one of the early buildings designed by Antonio Gaudi, built for textile manufacturer Pere Màrtir Calvet in 1899. The 5-storey building incorporates Modernista elements in a conservative baroque setting with wrought-iron balconies. The sandstone façade has stacked cotton bobbin shaped columns flanking the entrance, and is crowned by 2 semi-circular gables topped with iron crosses, with the busts of 3 saints below the gaps. The decorative elements in the gallery are symbolic of the Calvet family. Today the building houses a restaurant.
