Every first Saturday of the month at 11 am there is a guided tour of Modernisme in Canet. No need to book, just turn up at the Lluís Domènech i Montaner House Museum, where you’ll find the tourist office. If you go to the town any other day, you can, of course, do the route on your own. Another option is to form a group of twenty or more people and arrange a visit. The route starts at the house where Domènech i Montaner used to live and that he built between 1918 and 1920 with his son, Pere Domènech Roura, and his son-in-law, Francesc Guàrdia. There you can see the permanent exhibition about the architect and also temporary exhibitions. His studio was next door in the Rocosa country farmhouse.
Casa Roura is in Riera de Sant Domènech, and was commissioned by brothers-in-law of the architect of Palau de la Música, and close to it is the Ateneu Cabrerenc, notable for its central rosette and large balcony. Walk along Carrer Ample, with buildings such as Casa Floris, designed by Pere Domènech, Casa Puxan, built by the foreman Josep Cabruja at the request of the Indiano Jaume Puxan, and Casa Carbonell, with a façade with sgraffiti. There are also some architecturally interesting old factories in the town, such as the Fàbrica Jover, by Pere Domènech, and the Fàbrica Carbonell, by Puig i Cadafalch. The icing on the cake is Santa Florentina Castle, restored and enlarged by Domènech i Montaner; but there is a half hour walk to get there, and you must book in advance to visit.
