Detail of the facade
One of the most impressive buildings in Barcelona.

(Gaudi constructed (1904-1906) this building for a rich merchant. The fašade and roof are in colorful mosaic, the balconies look like facial bones of giant animals, and the roof represents the back of a prehistoric animal.)

Address: Passeig de GrÓcia 43
Directions: Take the metro to Passeig de GrÓcia, or bus 7, 16, 17, 22, 24, 28, 43 or 44.
