Can Vivó

This house is located on the western side of Plaza del Born, and along with Can Salort and Can Torre Saura it forms a vast patrician architectural complex that dominates the square. It used to be called Can Vigo, as this was the name of the family that built it. The current façade dates from the 20th century, and it modernised an extremely monumental composition with a markedly Italian feel, perhaps from the 19th century. The façade was stuccoed and the main openings were decorated with figurative architecture, with lintelled doorways, crowns with pediments, etc. The refurbishment left the balconies intact, but both ends were turned into enclosed glass lookout points, and the stucco was replaced by a new red-painted finish.
