About Palacio de Gaudí

In the year 1886 a fire destroyed the old episcopal residence and the Astorga Bishop, Juan Bautista Grau Vallespinó, commissioned Antonio Gaudí to build the new palace. In 1889, the genius began the works, but after the death of the bishop, he left the Project. It was García Guereta who continued the construction finishing it in 1913. The palace never came to be used as an episcopal residence and since 1964 became the headquarters of the Museo de los Caminos.
