Casa Botines was constructed in the North West Spanish city of Leon, making it one of Gaudi’s few architectural projects outside of his native Catalonia.
The work was completed over two years, from 1891-1892. The project was given to this architect because of his existing connections to several individuals involved in the commissioned piece. It was Güell who introduced him to the businessmen seeking to construct this building. They were involved in the textile industry and also had links to the Catalan region.
