The Rabadà, or Vallvé, House

© Pep Escoda

In 1918, architect Alfons Barba Miracle designed a home for his friend, Doctor Àngel Rabadà Mayné, in an area where there were still some available plots of land. Behind the house there was a garden and an orchard. As well as his political activities, the doctor was also known for being one of the first physicians to use X-rays in Tarragona. Once again, the façade was created in a Modernist style with Secessionist roots, featuring a very balanced aesthetic on the ground and first floors and a heavier and bolder appearance on the second floor and the top of the building.
