Casa de les Punxes/Casa Terrades (Diagonal 416-420) Josep Puig i Cadafalch 1903-1905

The house is privately owned and not open to visitors, but the exterior delights anyone who goes to take a closer look. The brickwork on the fašade blends with the wrought-iron on the balconies, designed by Manuel BallarÝn, the neo-Gothic style sculptural reliefs by Alfons Juyol, and stained-glass windows by Eduard Amigˇ. The ceramic panels surmounting the fašade refer to the patriotic symbols of Catalonia. Another example of the nationalism that often imbues Catalan modernisme.
