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.

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.
