how to go there





Passeig de Manuel Girona, 55-61
Barcelona


An undulating gate and wall

Enclosing wall and access door to the Miralles estate, located to the north of Barcelona. Only a part of the wall, 36 meters long and finished with a metal mesh grille, remains, while the door, which is large with the shape of an inverted lobular arch covered by a porch and a cross, has been entirely conserved.

The owner of the estate was his friend Hermenegild Miralles i Anglès, the printer who more than once allowed the architect to use his enormous printing presses to test the strength of the stone columns that he used in some of his works.
