La Farinera is one of the most well-known works by architect Rafael Masó.
La Farinera is one of Girona's most representative modernista buildings. Industrialist Alfons Teixidor commissioned its construction from architect Rafael Masó, asking for it to include: the family home, a suite of offices, and industrial warehouses to be used as a flourmill and for storage. It might seem strange to find a factory right in the middle of the city, but in 1910, when it was built, it was actually located in the town of Santa Eugènia de Ter. The purpose of the building can be seen from the outside, thanks to its white roof and dome: All snowy! I want it to really be the house of flour,' said Masó. The building, which has influences ranging from Gaudí and Charles Rennie Mackintosh to the Vienna Secession, is currently the headquarters of Catalan newspaper El Punt Avui.
