  Casa de les Punxes

Favorite thing: Casa de les Punxes? (1904-1906) is a work of Josep Puig i Cadafalch.
You can find it at the corner of Diagonal street 416-420.
It is a private building and not open for public visitors.

It has a nice sundial on one of the walls and also an image of Sant Jordi with the inscription: "Sant Patró de Catalunya torneu-nos la llibertat".
Josep Puig was assisted by other specialist like: Alfons Juyol (sculptures); Eudald Amigó ; Enric Monserda (interior design) and Manuel Ballarín.

At least you can say, that it is a remarkable construction with some Middle Aged influence.
