Belles­guard

Sunday Mail - Travel/Escape - - SPAIN -

This Gaudi master­piece (belles­guardgaudi.com) was opened to the public in 2013. Built be­tween 1900 and 1909, the pri­vate res­i­dence (still owned by the orig­i­nal Guil­era fam­ily) has a cas­tle-like ap­pear­ance with crenel­lated walls of stone and brick, nar­row stained-glass win­dows, elab­o­rate iron­work and a soar­ing tur­ret mounted by a Gau­dian cross. It’s a fas­ci­nat­ing work that com­bines both Gothic and Modernista el­e­ments. Join a guided tour to see in­side.
