Gaudi at Astorga, Leon – Episcopal Palace

The Episcopal Palace at Astorga is one of Antoni Gaudi's earlier works.

 

It was built between 1889 and 1913.

 

Unlike much of Gaudi's work in and around Barcelona, the Episcopal Palace lacks his signature curves and natural influence.

 

The Episcopal Palace is also quite symmetrical which is also out of character in Gaudi's later work.

 

Sadly for this building it is overshadowed by the intricately designed and beautifully built Catedral de Santa Maria de Astorga.
