Vacation apartments in Barcelona
Barcelona is one of the largest tourist destinations not only in Europe, but in the world. For a comfortable alternative to hotels, consider choosing short-term apartment rentals in Barcelona that constitute a successful and secure market in Europe.
Rental apartments in Barcelona cost less than hotel rooms of comparable sizes, and yet offer you a real home where you would love to come back after a day out in Barcelona.
You get all the advantages of independent living and working in a rental apartment: you may choose to cook in a fully-equipped kitchen, you may entertain guests in the living room, you have the privacy of your own bedroom. Would you have all that in a hotel? More and more travellers prefer to rent an apartment in Barcelona for these reasons.
If you frequently travel with family or friends, you know how difficult it may be to book adjacent spacious rooms in a hotel. 1-, 2- or 3-bedroom apartments in Barcelona are easy to find. What is more, you pay per apartment, not per guest, which allows you to cut rental costs considerably, and spend quality time together.
Barcelona is a city you would not want to leave and where you would love to come back, but if you are set on more exploring, we also offer apartment, cottage and villa short-term and long-term rentals all over Europe and North America!

Fundació Antoni Tàpies

The Fundació Antoni Tàpies is not only a flagship modernist building, whose construction was completed in 1885, but also a depository of works of one of the most significant modern artists of Catalonia of the 20th century. The building itself was designed by Lluís Domènech i Montaner for the Montaner i Simon publishing house, which was managed by the architect's cousin at the time. Islamic motifs are combined with metal-and-brick structure to create a unique design. Tàpies deemed it necessary to crown the house with a sculpture of his own creation, named “The Cloud and the Chair”: although many people see only a tangle of wires on the roof, a certain chair is visible there as well, if you look closely.

Antoni Tàpies created the foundation in 1984 to stimulate the development of modern art in Barcelona. His own experimental work has always contained political undertones, sometimes heavily disguised: Tàpies had been an opponent of Franco's regime in the 60s and 70s. Most of the art housed in the foundation (approximately 800 works) had been donated by Tàpies himself. The collection gives a good idea of how the artistic style of Antoni Tàpies evolved, and the Fundació often holds temporary exhibitions of other modern artists.

The main floor showcases a sample of Tàpies's main artwork, and the exhibits are rotated on a regular basis. The lower floor is temporary exhibition space, and the basement houses drawings and sketches by Tàpies. The latter is just an echo of the exuberant eclectic works that made Antoni Tàpies famous in the first place.
