Things to do Gaudí and the House of the Four Towers Free Tour

The Casa Botines by Antonio Gaudí is one of the only three works that Gaudí carried out outside of Catalonia, the best known Spanish architect internationally. The other two works are the Capricho de Comillas in Cantabria and the Episcopal Palace of Astorga in León. All three are located on the Camino de Santiago, a World Heritage Site. What makes Gaudí one of the great architectural contributions on the Jacobean Route.

The building was conceived before installing a tenement house (4 floors with two houses per floor on each side, which adds up to 16 houses), on the ground and semi-basement floors, two entrepreneurial merchants from Leon ( Simón Fernández and Mariano Andrés), until then located in one of the old squares of the Barrio Húmedo.

The construction aroused the envy of the architects and people of León of the time, who, without attracting the criticism suffered by the Catalan architect architect in the Astorian palace, could not be abstracted to the existence of a certain controversy "the imminent collapse of the imposing house ", a fact that never happened.
