Casa Lleó i Morera, built between 1902 and 1906, is a masterpiece by the great modernist architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner, author of other great works in Barcelona, such as Hospital de Sant Pau and Palau de la Música Catalana.

In 1902, Francesca Morera commissioned a total remodellation of a property of her own, to make it her new home in Barcelona. Unfortunately, Ms. Morera died in 1904, and her son Albert Lleó i Morera took charge of the house and the ongoing works.

Casa Lleó i Morera won the First Prize in the annual artistic buildings award by the City Council in 1906. Casa Lleó i Morera project involved a master craftsmen team, who worked both in the decoration of the facade and interiors. Thus, we can enjoy sculptures by Eusebi Arnau, mosaics by Mario Maragliano and Lluís Brú, stained glass by Antoni Rigalt and furniture and marquetry by Gaspar Homar and Josep Pey, among others.

Casa Lleó i Morera is part of the so-called Block of Discord, a set of five modernist buildings in Passeig de Gràcia, most notably Casa Lleó i Morera by Domènech i Montaner, Casa Amatller by Puig i Cadafalch and Casa Batlló by Antoni Gaudí. An open-air museum of Catalan modernism in just one hundred meters of avenue, between the streets Consell de Cent and Aragó.

During its century-old history, Casa Lleó i Morera has had several owners, starting with the family Lleó i Morera, going through some commercial companies, Grupo Planeta and finally the Núñez i Navarro Group, who has carried out a superb job of restoration and rehabilitation.

Guided visits are available in English, Monday to Saturday. For more information, visit the official website of the House Lleó i Morera.
