The En Ville restaurant forms part of an emblematic building known as the “Casa de vecinos de Ramón Mumbrú” (House of the neighbours of Ramón Mumbrú), located in the heart of the Old Town of Barcelona and designed and built by Rafael Guastavino in 1877.
Rafael Guastavino, an architect from Valencia (1842-1908), was renowned in New York for promoting his own construction system based on the traditional Catalan brick vault and he certainly made his mark on the city in the form of Grand Central Terminal and Carnegie Hall, among others. He also patented the Guastavino Tile Arch System.
Our restaurant is a clear testimony to his work, offering the chance to admire its beauty: the ceiling of En Ville and its unmistakable brick-tiled arches.
…an architectural wonder!
