The building was declared a Historic Monument in 1969. Antonio Gaudí started the project of this building in 1891 commissioned by the fabric merchants of Leon.These business men had a relationship with the Catalan textile sector. Actually it was one of these Catalan business men, Carlos Güell, who recommended Gaudí as possible designer for the new Leonese textile headquarters. The result was a modernist building with a Medieval look. All business activity was carried out on the ground floors. The upper floors were reserved for residences.
Today it is the social headquarters of Caja España.
