Originally constructed in 1908 and completely restored in 2004, Casa Fuster Hotel is an emblematic
modernist building designed by the famous Catalan architect Lluís Domenech i Montaner. Mr. Mariano Fuster, 
a gentleman from Mallorca’s upper class, met and fell in love with Ms. Consuelo Fabra i Puig, the daughter of the
Marquis of Alella, in Barcelona. The building was a gift from the Senor Fuster to his wife. Mariano Fuster put the
house in his wife's name and dedicated a rose window to her with the initials CF. At the time it was the most expensive
house in the Catalan capital, due to the high quality marble and other materials used in construction.

Gran Hotel la Florida
Gran Hotel la Florida was built in 1924 by Doctor Andreu, who wanted to build the best hotel in Barcelona. It thrived until Spain's civil war, when it was used as a military hospital. It returned to its hotel roots in 1950, and became popular with Barcelona's high society, especially as a summer residence for well-heeled Catalan families. 

In subsequent years, Ernest Hemingway, James Stewart, George Sanders, Rock Hudson, Princess Fabiola and the prince of Belgium stayed at the prestigious hotel. But in 1979, La Florida succumbed to the passing of time and it closed its doors. This boutique hotel of Barcelona was rescued in 2001 thanks to a meticulous renovation that lasted for four years.
