Secrets of Barcelona Casa Asia
Secrets of Barcelona Casa Asia was created with the will to strengthen the knowledge and dialogue about Asia in Spain, with the analysis and discussion of civic, political, social, cultural, economic and environmental issues, supporting activities and projects that contribute to a better knowledge between Asian and Spanish societies, and to promote the development of relations among them.
Casia Asia is in the Palau del Baró de Quadras, a modernist building by Puig i Cadafalch built between 1904 and 1906. The building has two completely different facades. The main one, which gives onto Avinguda Diagonal, has neo-gothic and Islamic influences. The rear one, which overlooks C/Roselló, was inspired by Viennese modernism.
