Another modernista building in Barri Eixample, la Casa Josefa Vallenueva is clearly inspired by Gaudě's creations. Its most distinguished feature is the spire and stack of balconies below it at one of the building's two angles. Like all corner buildings in Barri Eixample, la Casa Josefa Villanueva has two angles, but when the building was completed in 1909, it is said to have originally had two identical spires and balconies at each angle. Sadly, in a subsequent renovation, the left hand spire and balconies were completely removed.

Address: Carrer Roger de Llúria, 80 / Valčncia, 312
