Description

'The House of Spikes' might sound like some sort of torture chamber, but it's just the translation of the Gothic castle Casa de les Punxes in Barcelona's Avinguda Diagonal. As one of the most renowned buildings in the city, it's a strong reminder that the city has more architectural acclaim than just Gaudi. With this ticket you get skip the line access to this popular attraction and an informative and entertaining audio guide.

Casa de les Punxes was once three buildings located between the Avinguda Diagonal, Carrer Rosselló and Carrer Bruc. Then in 1905 a visionary architect by the name of Josep Puig i Cadafalch decided they should actually be one building, and that it should look like a northern European fairytale castle.

And, like it was tapped by the wand of a Fairy Godmother - POOF! - Casa de les Punxes sprang to life. Or something like that.

After skipping the entrance line, your audio guide will tell you all about the building project, and its many significant and fanciful features. From the four amazing turrets, through the wrought-iron balconies and stained glass windows. All the way down to the neo-Gothic style sculptures by Alfons Juyol. And it's not just a beautiful building, it also manages to symbolically tell the story of Saint Jordi, the dragon-slaying legend of Catalan history.
