House of Spikes

Local nameCasa de les Punxes
LocationBarcelona, Spain

This residential block was designed by the modernist architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch. It's definitely worth seeing - it looks like a beautiful Gothic castle! Note the facade with neo-Gothic style sculptural reliefs and stained-glass windows.

It's now open to visitors - visit the house and learn more about the importance and influence of its architect. You will also have the chance to visit the house's towers.

It is definitely a sight to behold. It has an almost fairytale-like charm that you don't see every day and it will be interesting not only for the admirers of architecture.
