Sala Fundación MAPFRE

Gallery in La Sagrada Família & L'Eixample

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 curvaceous marble stairway. Look out for the fine Modernista stained-glass windows in room 8. An audioguide costs €3.50.
