Queviures Múrria

Barcelona’s most Modernista shop

Hola Barcelona, your travel solution

Founded in 1898, this delicatessen preserves its original facade and Modernista posters by Ramon Casas. Queviures Múrria is one of the city’s most original shops, which over its hundred-year history has maintained its décor, which is a true work of art.

Why visit Queviures Múrria?

On the corner of Carrer de Roger de Llúria and Carrer de València, in the Eixample district of Barcelona, there is a hundred-year-old shop that still has its original decoration, with stained-glass signs and advertisements designed by Ramon Casas, one of the most recognised painters of the Modernista generation.

It is Queviures Múrria, a shop that opened in 1898 as a coffee roaster and rolled wafer factory and is now one of Barcelona’s most renowned traditional delicatessens. Outside, it preserves stained-glass advertisements from the 1920s for the companies Anís del Mono and Codorníu designed by Ramon Casas, while inside you can see a clock from the period, mahogany and pine furniture, and the shop’s original counter.
