Reus. Carrer de Monterols
From Plaza Catalunya ,the art Nouveau route through Carrer Galanes again leads us to Mercadal square, where it ends. But I started the route withGoose square, so at the Gaudi Museum (on the map), I turn ontoCarrer de Monterols ), a shopping pedestrian street that houses several architectural masterpieces.
Casa Laguna, C. Monterols, 15), built in 1908 and is a true explosion of color. Here you can find an analogy with the house of batlló (Casa Batlló) of the great Gaudi. The combination of a wide variety of design methods gives the building a special charm.
In the design, there is an abundance of ceramics, including volumetric tiles laid in both geometric patterns and mosaics (trencadis), the picture is complemented by openwork balconies. The architect is still the same Pere Caselles.
Casa Codina (30 Monterols Street). The house was built in 1905, the facade is decorated with green and maroon sgraffito. There is an interesting effect, if you look from the bottom up, the elements of the pattern begin to merge and blue tones appear.
Casa Carpa (Casa Carpa, C. Monterols, 34) built in 1903, again Caselles.
The building is quite strict, with only large plant bas-reliefs used as decoration.
