Igualada is a town located in Catalonia, Spain. It is situated around 60 km from Barcelona, so it takes approximately an hour travelling from one city to another.



HISTOTY

Igualada is known for its value in the textile and fur sectors during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The town had a big number of factories that generated a lot of money to their owners, just when Spain was industrially undeveloped, so Igualada obtained a national importance. All these made that bourgeois came here to live and built extraordinary and modern buildings.

That is the origin of modernist and newcentist buildings in Igualada. Actually, the town preserves a lot of them, although others have been demolished.
