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

The building with an interesting look and two spires. Good to take photos from Av. Diagonal near Verdaguer metro station.

Casa de les Punxes is probably my favourite building in Barcelona. More people should go and appreciate it, and I'm surprised they don't considering its not far from Casa Mila. There is so much interesting work to take in, with the towers and the iron work. Also look out for the three different entrances - it was originally built by... More

A fabulous building. Very interesting towers, stained glass, iron work. Really worth going out of your way to see. You cannot go inside as it is an apartment building. Wonderful just to walk around outside and admire all the features. Not very far from Casa Mila, on Diagonal, not far from Passeig de Gracia

This house doesn't appear to be classed as a major attraction but we thought it was one of the most beautiful buildings in the city with its turrets and tiles.If you are passing in the area, it's well worth a detour to take a look.
