Casa de les Punxes, also known as Casa Terrades, is one of the most iconic monuments of Catalan modernism. In 1905, Bartomeu Terradas commissioned Josep Puig i Cadafalch to design three houses: one for each of his daughters. The result was a unique building that features three different entrances from street level and is reminiscent of an old Mediaeval castle with its characteristic towers.
