Casa de les Punxes

Culture / All public / Barcelona (city)

Come and discover one of the greatest examples of Catalan modernism and one of the most iconic places in Barcelona.

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. 

Casa de les Punxes is a modernist urban palace that takes inspiration from Mediaeval architecture, one of the most iconic buildings in Barcelona and key to understanding Catalan modernism.
