The Casa de les Punxes is a lovely lovely building on Carrer del Rossello, just off Avenida Diagonal. It is a marvel of architecture and is definitely worth a visit. Recommended.

Lovely building on Avenida Diagonal. We specifically came here as we wanted to see all the Gaudi buildings. Beautiful architecture.

Yes, it is a nice building, and it has towers. In the grand scheme of things, you can't see the inside, there's no information for you on the outside, and there are many other more involving and interesting sites to see in Barcelona. Look, and maybe even point at it as you walk past. Worthy of a minor detour at... More

We were on our "shopping day" in Av. Diagonal, when we came on, by the coincidence, to this building and we were pleasantly surprised by the architecture.

As you go up Paseig de Gracia and meet ith Diagonal, turn left and you can see this magnificent building. It's extraemelly well preserved and if you are lucky you can visit inside. The diagonal offers a great perspective of the building full of external decorations.

Private building so not an attraction per se, more a fantastic piece of architecture to admire if you're in the area. Not worth trekking to for the sole purpose of seeing.

Beautiful architecture, seems to be a castle from the fairy tale. If you are in this zone it's worth to give a ride around and admire this building. Unfortunately it cannot be visited inside being a private building but it worth anyway.

It's a really beautiful building. Don't go out of your way to see it as you can't go inside, but if you're in the area, it's well worth seeing.

I did not actually realise this building was an attraction as such but I took a picture as I liked it, on the way to sagrada familia and park guell. Great building, worth passing :)

If you like your architecture then this building is beautiful, detailed and definitely worth a look and a picture. However, if you dont, then I wouldn't go out of your way to go over there. You cant go inside it, theres no historical information on a board outside it and it really is a thing to see more than a... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
