What to expect

Enjoy a skip-the-line visit to Casa de les Punxes, emblem of Catalan modernism in Barcelona. Located in the very heart of the city, the building stands out as a unique architectural masterpiece, designed by Catalan architect Josep Puig I Cadafalch and declared National Historic Landmark in 1975.

Revolutionary, both in artistic and technical terms, Casa de les Punxes works as a perfect place to learn more about Art Nuveau, Catalan history, soul and symbology. During your visit, you'll have the chance to discover the legend of Sant Jordi, a key character in the shaping of Catalan history and identity.

Begin your visit from the first floor and, with the help of audiovisuals, immerse in the enchanted atmosphere of the place. Learn more about the family who commissioned the construction and about the Casa's hidden history.

Move freely on the roof and access all the punxes (Catalan for towers), each characterized by a different theme. In this way, get a deeper understanding of the Art Nouveau movement, enjoy explanations about the socio-cultural moment when the Casa was built and learn more about Puig i Cadaflach's life and work closely admiring his masterpiece.
