"La Aliança", the unknown jewel
This modernist building, located in Horta-Guinardó district, was inaugurated in 1917. The work of Josep Domènech i Mansana is one of the most beautiful examples of functional modernism in Barcelona.
It was founded as the Waiters’ Mutual Insurance Company of Barcelona to offer its members health care services. It became the largest private hospital group in Catalonia and the first social mutuality by number of policyholders. Currently, it operates as a geriatric centre.
