THE OCCULT SIDE OF GRACIA

         Gràcia, an independent town in Barcelona until 1897, is known today for being one of the greatest cultural centers of our city, with a dynamic associative life and one of the most emblematic festivals in our country. We invite you to discover its history and above all, the most surprising curiosities and legends of the neighborhood. A journey through time that will reveal to us the role of its illustrious inhabitants (the engineer Lesseps and others), the curses on the Plaza de la Virreina and the Casa del Diablo, the peculiar history of the Gràcia clocks, the revolutions and Freemasonry and the circle of spiritist women of the late nineteenth century, among other topics. The route ends at the fabulous Estudio Oleguer Junyent, the brilliant painter, set designer and collector to whom we owe the sumptuous decoration of the Círculo del Liceo and other masterpieces of the time such as the Casa Burés. As a true cabinet of curiosities, it treasures a unique legacy: decorative arts, forging and ceramics from the Renaissance and the Baroque, Catalan Gothic painting and the avant-garde of the 20th century and an impressive display of theatrical and Carnival clothing. Even some of the extraordinary automatons in the collection will come to life for the occasion. We will discover all its secrets at the hands of Sabine Armengol, who guards the studio as heir to this saga of artists.

Prices according to group size (includes cultural itinerary and guided visit to the Oleguer Junyent Study).
