Modernisme Vernacular Architecture- 1895
Antoni Gaudí - Reus - June, 25 1852
This collection of Modernista buildings includes a cellar, a house and a chapel. It was built towards the end of the nineteenth century, commissioned by industrialist Eusebi Güell who owned a number of vineyards in the Garraf area.
There had been controversy surrounding the authorship of this group of buildings. On the one hand it had been suggested that Francesc Berenguer i Mestres,
a disciple of Antoni Gaudí was responsible for the design and on the other hand that it was a project created by Gaudí himself.
The original plan is kept in the Sitges Historical Archive (located in the building adjacent to the Santiago Rusiñol library). It is signed by Antonio Gaudí and thus put an end to the controversy.
The buildings are asymmetric and make many references to medieval structures. The parabolic arches are remarkable as too are the wrought iron and brickwork.
The cellar is currently managed as a restaurant.
