Description

The 'House of Lace' may sound like a kind of torture chamber, but it is only the translation of the Gothic castle Casa de les Punxes into Barcelona's Avinguda Diagonal. As one of the most famous buildings in the city, you will not miss its spiky towers piercing the sky, but the interior of this Catalan building is equally impressive. With this ticket you skip the line access to this popular attraction and receive an informative and entertaining audio guide.

Casa de les Punxes was once three buildings located between Avinguda Diagonal, Carrer Rosselló and Carrer Bruc. Then, in 1905, a visionary architect named Josep Puig i Cadafalch decided that it should actually be a building, and that it should look like a fairy-tale castle in Northern Europe

And as if it had been tapped by the magic wand of a fairy - POOF! - casa de les Punxes was brought to life. Or something like that.

After you skip the entrance line, your audio guide will tell you all about the construction project and its many important and imaginative features. From the four amazing towers, to the wrought iron balconies and stained glass windows. Right down to the sculptures in the neo-Gothic style of Alfons Juyol. And not only is it a beautiful building, it also manages to symbolically tell the story of Saint Jordi, the dragon slayer legend of Catalan history.
