Discover this unique house, its designer and the legend that brings them together.
A "large Gothic castle" standing in the middle of Barcelona's Avinguda Diagonal catches the eye of any visitor to the city. The "Casa de les Punxes" (House of Spikes) is really a residential block built in the shape of medieval castle which is one of the most recognisable modernista landmarks on the Barcelona skyline.
A unique opportunity to delve into a fantastical world of knights, princesses and dragons. You'll also be able to visit the rooftop and enjoy amazing views of the city!.
Antoni Gaudí is synonymous with Barcelona, and places like the Sagrada Família, Casa Batlló, La Pedrera, Park Güell, Torre Bellesguard and Palau Güell are visited by hundreds of thousands of people from across the world each year, firmly establishing Gaudí as one of the foremost architects of his time. As such, it's exciting to know that this month sees the opening up of the first house he designed, with the public finally getting extended access to Casa Vicens (in the past it was open only on May 22, the feast day of Saint Rita), which was completed in 1888. Gaudí had actually received the commission from Manuel Vicens i Montaner, a brick and tile factory owner, some years earlier; Vicens had inherited the land, which at the time stood in the independent village of Gràcia, and wanted to build a summer house there. In its design, the recently graduated Gaudí makes extensive use of colour and tiles, with Arabic, oriental and neoclassical influences. The beginnings of his singular style and inventiveness are clearly on show.
"Barcelona is art nouveau; it's Gaudí. I visited the Sagrada Familia, the Palau Güell and even the Torre Bellesguard, but the Casa Vicens was closed this year. You'll be able to visit in 2017 when it opens to the public for the first time."
Among the pantheon of modernista architects responsible for many of the elegantly splendid buildings around the city, Josep Puig i Cadafalch is undoubtedly one of the stars. Several of his Barcelona works are unmissable highlights of that movement's legacy: Casa Amatller, Casa de les Punxes, Palau Baró de Quadras and Casa Martí, home to Els Quatre Gats café, a popular meeting-place for artists and intellectuals at the turn of the 20th century, and Casa Ramona, which is now home to the CaixaForum cultural centre. But Puig i Cadafalch wasn't just an architect: he was also a politician, an archaeologist and expert in Roman art, and director of the Institute of Catalan Studies. In the 150th anniversary of his birth, 2017 will see a range of activities related to his life and work in both Barcelona and his nearby home town of Mataró. Exhibitions, conferences and guided tours are just part of the plans for what promises to be a memorable celebration of architecture.
"A tribute to this architect, politician and archaeologist who was one of Barcelona's most influential figures. His art nouveau, or modernista, landmarks are must-see attractions. You'll be able to enjoy walking tours, exhibitions and talks about Puig i Cadafalch and his works."
