Modernism Museum (Museo Modernista) in Novelda

I have taken a vague interest in early 20th century architecture, since moving into an Art Deco house. So, I popped into the Museo Modernista (Modernism Museum, or Modernist House Museum), while spending the day in the old mining town of Novelda, in the province of Alicante in eastern Spain.

The house is not so much a museum of exhibits, as a prime specimen of the Modernist architectural movement itself. Built in 1903, everything in it (and about it) smells of Modernism — even the routes from one room to the next, like this staircase for example.
