Barcelona is famous around the world for its Modernista architecture. This book revives features of the city's destroyed Modernista architecture — dating back to the end of the 19th century and start of the 20th — several of which are true masterpieces from a unique cultural era. It rescues from oblivion nearly 150 lost features of the old Barcelona, bounded by the city's old walls and immediate environs, from the site of the Universal Exposition of 1888 to the gates of Eixample, not to mention the seafront, Paral·lel, the Rambla, the Barri Gòtic, the Raval, Plaça de Catalunya and Plaça d’Urquinaona.
