Another splendid work by Gaudì, which maintained the original structure of the 1877 building, but completely redesigned its exterior and interior; the façade is spectacular, similar to a continuous wave, with stone and glass walls, with balconies which recall the teeth of prehistoric animals.
The roof, the strangest in the city, is said to represent S. George and the Dragon, with tiles similar to the scales of the animal and fantastic and shiny chimneys.
Unfortunately it is closed to the public, but part of its furniture can be admired in Casa-Museu Gaudì in Parc Guell.
- Address: Passeig de Gràcia 45
The movement style continues inside, through two separate courtyards, one circular and one oval; one can visit the top apartment, the “Pis“, the attic and the roof, with separate or integral tickets.
