The Casa Lleó-Morera is is located at Passeig de Grŕcia 35 in the Eixample district of Barcelona. The building is located on the corner with Carrer del Consell de Cent, and shares block with Casa Amatller and Casa Batlló. The building was originally constructed in 1864 as Casa Rocamora, but was renovated by Domčnech i Montaner beginning in 1902.

Unlike many buildings constructed at the time, it was not named for its owner; rather it is named from the lions (lleó) and mulberry trees (morera) motifs in the decorations. Domčnech i Montaner worked with sculptor Eusebi Arnau, Antoni Serra i Fiter for the ceramics, Lluís Brú and Mario Maragliano for the mosaics and Gaspar Homar for decoration and furniture to make the complete work.
