It is a pity that you can simply go into the mansion and see the beautiful staircase and first floor above which the school of tourism and go. But, living almost a month on Passeig of Gràcia, many times we passed by this neo-Gothic home with relatives for a Russian heart name. Built it Manuel Comas i Thos in 1901-05, when the Eixample was built tight houses in Art Nouveau style, this fantastic medieval North European Gothic with typical roses-Windows, elegant inlaid staircase and powerful columns with flowers in the lobby. That's just the stained glass on the ceiling of a purely modern and very nice.
Having so many buildings of the master architect Gaudí perhaps this type of building they would pass unnoticed, but it seems to me that this building called the attention. The famous Marfa or House House of widow of Marfa, located in the Paseo de Gracia, very close to the famous Casa Mila (La Pedrera) and the Casa Batlló in Barcelona city. This House was designed by the architect Manuel Comas i Thos and built between the years 1901 and 1905 and may be defined in the modernist style. I recommend visiting it more even if one is an architect, or enjoy the buildings of the great masters of architecture. It is now home to a Catalan University.
