Casa Asia - or Asia House - is a remarkable institution of East-West relations. Billed as the gateway to Asia and the Pacific in Spain, it also opens a vista of Catalonian splendour in its premises located on the famous Avinguda Diagonal in Barcelona. The Palau Baró de Quadras, a Modernist building designed by Puig i Cadafalch and classified as an Artistic and Historical Monument of National Interest, is the 'house' that acts as Casa Asia's headquarters.
