Casa Asia






Mr M and I have had a hyper cultural Saturday.
We've started at Casa Asia (which is what I really want to tell you about) and then gone to almost every gallery and exhibition available in Barcelona at the moment.
But the thing, Casa Asia is located at the Palau del Baró de Quadras by Josep Puig i Cadafalch.
Now, the place is AMAZING. Totally mind-blowing. It was like a garden turned into a building. The walls still had murals of trees and flowers. The stone was all carved into floral motives. Doors had huge metal panels with relieves on them. Even the little window handles had flowers on them!
Plus, there was an exhibition on Art and Aids, mostly from Thai artists. That was quite interesting to see in order to compare culural view points. Nevermind the first-floor exhibition of Asian textiles (the display was tremendously poor).
If you are ever in Barcelona, do not miss the building (entrance is free)

What did you think?
