Commissioned in 1900 by the widow of Jaume Figueras, Gaudi had the whole place done and dusted by 1909, ably assisted by Juan Rubio and Domènec Sugrañes i Gras.
Famously the site of medieval king, Martin the Humane’s summer residence. Gaudi drew inspiration from the original form of the 15th century structure, some of which still survives in the grounds. If you want to see what happens when Gaudi and straight lines meet, then Bellesguard is the spot!
It really is a bit off the beaten track this one, so it is still possible to stroll around without hoards of other tourists. Sneak up there towards the end of the day as the sun is dropping for great pics and some peace and quiet.
