Two distinct and totally different elements make the roof area striking, the chimneys and the "dragon back" as it is said to mimic. The imagination can take off in different directions if you sit back and just let it run, take a few moments to sit in the shade and just watch, see if a dragon rises out of the roof.

Address: Passeig de Gràcia 43

    truly amazing. do we need to buy tickets in advance for places like this in midoctober and out of peak season. we tend to be pretty freelance when touristing, never know when an important shoe store will delay us.

      Haha, "shoe store", yes if not shoes, then dresses, if not that some other important shopping experience.....
      We also did not purchase tickets in advance, the only thing we missed was a concert that was totally booked. Freelancing, which we also do, gives you much more freedom, but does cost you the occassional missed place when they are booked the day you want to visit.
