The area
Address
Neighborhood: Eixample
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.

Unique architecture with intricate details
Dec 2018
Casa Comalat is one of the most original examples of art nouveau in Barcelona. This building has been designed by Catalan architect architect Salvador Valeri i Pupurull. It has two distinct façades. The main façade, which overlooks Barcelona's Avinguda Diagonal, is made of stone and is more symmetrical and regular in shape. Colour dominates the rear façade of the building which overlooks Carrer Rosselló. Be sure not to miss the other side. Both the sides are spectacular. Even if you cannot visit the interior, it's still worth a visit just to admire it from the outside. The architecture and the interior are stunning. One of my favourite houses in Barcelona. Highly recommend.

Casa Comalat is a building on Avinguda Diagonal and one of many examples of Catalan Modernism on the same street, especially the stone grills over the entrances and windows, bar grills over the bay windows, the elaborate decorations on the facade especially underneath the roof cornice. Sadly, the building is a private residence and I had to just make do with admiring it fro the outside.

Worth a look if on Avinguda Diagonal.

Casa Comalat is amazing architecture at work! This is wonderful work at its best. The influence of Gaudi is very evident in this building. The facade of the building is art personified!

Potentially great

The exterior is charming modernist style. Unfortunately one cannot go inside. The exterior is worth going by. He sure to see both sides of the building, however.

Another stunning building.

Although not designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi it is clearly influenced by this genius.
The facade looks awesome, a wonderful looking building, very photogenic but unfortunately you cannot gain access to this building.
We found it as we were wandering around this part of town and made a brief stop off to take some great photos of this building.
Easy to locate Carrer De Corsega in the wonderful vibrant and exciting Gracia neighbourhood.
Well worth checking out.

Typical Gaudi

You can't really go inside so you can only view the building from the sidewalk. If you've seen Park Guell or Casa Batllo, then this would pretty much be the same thing. I wouldn't go out of my way, but if you're in the area, maybe worth a quick detour.

The Casa Comalat is a modernist building

Although it is not estqa permitted by the owners in tourist guides to be visited. A shame because the stairs, ascersor and roof are precious and have been visit quietly to see details. It can be visited from the outside. It has rear facade with beautiful balconies.

We found in on the way from Sagrada Familia to Passeign de Graciaand casa Pedrero. Strange, it's not Gaudi's work, as it looks absolutely his! Anyway, colourful splendid house with no sharp lines ans generously decorated- it forces everyone to stop. Sad we didn't dare to come inside...

Very rude doorman
Aug 2016 • Solo
My favorite building in Barcelona, it's absolutely fabulous, but the doorman/guard is very rude. I tried to have a look at the incredible vestibule, but the doorman immediately kicked me out in a very rude way : I entered and politely asked him if I could just take a quick picture of the entrance, he said no and then closed the massive door on my foot ! ..... Be carefull !
