Casa Estapé, a work by Bernadí Martorell i Rius (1907)

Casa Estapé (Estapé house), formerly known as Casa Laplana, a six-story building, is a work of the architect Bernardí Martorell i Rius in 1907 and located in Passeig de Sant Joan 6. [map] Nearest metro station is Arc de Triomf.

Don't miss details such as its ceramic fish scales dome, designed by Jaume Bernades, its wrought iron balconies, carved floral designs on the facade and  the stone balcony on first floor.

This house is the start of Barcelona's modernista route, created and promoted by the Council, and the one we are strictly going to follow.

Go down a bit towards the Arc de Triomf (somehow not included in the official route, but we will check it out too!) and then left to find Vilanova Avenue building of hydropower.
