Sala Fundación MAPFRE information
Formerly the Fundación Francisco Godia, this stunning, carefully restored Modernista residence was taken over in late 2015 by the charitable cultural arm of Spanish insurance giants MAPFRE as a space for art and photography exhibitions. Housed in the Casa Garriga i Nogués, it is a stunning, carefully restored Modernista residence originally built for a rich banking family by Enric Sagnier in 1902–05.
Exhibitions are shown on the ground floor and in a number of small rooms up the languidly curvaceous marble stairway. Look out for the fine Modernista stained-glass windows in room 8.
