El Castell
zoom: normal | big | crazy


Architect: Ricardo Bofill / Taller de Arquitectura
Year: 1966 to 1968
Address: Sant Pere de Ribes

Travelling from Barcelona along the motorway in the direction of Sitges, on the left-hand side on a wooded hill, you will suddenly see something resembling a cubist cactus. El Castell, built between 1966 and 1968 by Ricardo Bofill and the first members of the Taller de Arquitectura, is located between Sant Pere de Ribas and Sitges and is a homage to the author Franz Kafka. The architecture experiments with the concept of the vertically growing building and the geometrical form of the cube. Today the building is very dilapidated, and not that easy to visit.
