Barcelona’s home-grown Art Nouveau movement known as Modernista or Modernismo dates from the late 19th century, but remains an ever-present influence in this glorious city. On my last visit, I wish that I had this inspired new map of the city from the folks at Barcelona Modernista. For the reasonable price of €10, you can discover Barcelona’s many UNESCO World Heritage Sites, as well as dozens of lesser known manifestations of Modernista in the arts, literature and architecture.
By the way, the city tourist office has an excellent guidebook called the Moderniste Route, which also provides admission discounts that more than cover the cost of the book.

Great article and beautiful photography. Which camera did you use to take the pictures? The last image of Casa Batlló is just amazing.
Thanks for your comments. I cannot take any credit for the photographs in the post. They are from Barcelona Modernista’s website.
