Not just folklore but also a lot of luxury for those who like to indulge in a romantic dinner full of pomp, by candlelight with their own half wearing an elegant formal dress.

Author of the extraordinary Sagrada Familia, he proposes in his works a prodigious mix of innovation and tradition through buildings of sophisticated beauty, just think of Casa Batllò, La Pedrera or Park Guell, which seems to be a truly enchanted place.
