Promoter of the arts
Eusebi Güell worked to promote cultural rebirth and Catalan culture.
In 1900, he headed the committee of the Jocs Florals, a literary competition. He sponsored institutions such as the Associació Catalanista d’Excursions Científiques and the Centre Excursionista de Catalunya. He was also a founder of the periodical La Renaixença.
He published scientific books, including L'immunité par les leucomaïnes (1886), a study of cholera that was much celebrated in specialised circles.
Eusebi Güell had a great interest in literature, music (which he got from his mother's family) and the arts in general.
