Torre Bellesguard is one of Antoni Gaudí’s most symbolic and fascinating works, aware as the architect was that this piece of land had witnessed major events that marked the history of Catalonia and that major characters throughout the ages had coincided there.

The castle that Antoni Gaudí designed combines Catalan Modernisme and Gothic as a tribute to the palace of King Martin the Humane, the last king of the House of Barcelona, who spent the final years of his life in Bellesguard. He also restored the remains of the original palace and the defensive wall that he discovered, working on the project between 1900 and 1909.

Antoni Gaudí’s Torre Bellesguard was declared a work of cultural interest on 24 July 1969 and is one of his most outstanding buildings with the longest prior history, a history that in turn influenced the architect, imbuing Bellesguard as he did with much symbolism in both its tower and gardens and providing many references to the medieval past of the estate and King Martin.

Bellesguard is a gem of Catalan Modernisme and one of Antoni Gaudí’s least known and yet most personal works.

Nearby one can see the arches that Gaudí himself designed between 1903 and 1905 in order to consolidate the street leading to Sant Gervasi cemetery and passing next to the Torre Bellesguard. The ten arches are little known, although they are contemporary, and very similar, to the famous arches the architect designed for the Park Güell.
