  • Built in 1906, this handsome house is by Josep Puig i Cadafalch. The intricate, sculptured frieze above the first-floor windows has close affinities to early Renaissance Plateresque style.  more »
  • The size is modest, but Baron Quadras's visually distinctive house is one of the pearls of Catalan modernity in the hands of Puig-i-Kadafalk. The uniqueness of this property is that it is two-way. Facing the front façade of Diagonal Avenue, the opposite is Roseyo Street on the next street. Meter design to rebuild the building in its style. The main façade is Gothic in view with references to Norman Gothic. Legendary and natural decorations are found in the carved decoration - gargling is particularly impressive. Special attention deserves the interior of the palace lobby. Yes, you can go inside. The wide marble staircase is simply gorgeous. Large space to fit the fountain. It's amazing how people at the time sacrificed the interior space of a seemingly ordinary staircase, and the goal is simply to deliver the tenant to the floor above

  • This is a strange building in that, like Casa Comalat in the same street, has two totally different styled facades. The one on the Diagonal avenue is in Gothic style with turrets and long windows and balconies. The other one, facing Rosselló street is reminiscent of the art nouveau style that was so popular in Barcelona at the beginnings of the 20th century.
  • When viewed from the Avinguda Diagonal, the building is reminiscent of North-European palaces, with an intricately carved neo-plateresque style which highlights the noble character of the building. Here, the long, ornate balcony, with its busts of eminent medieval and Renaissance figures, floral motifs and heraldic shields, and the mansards on the upper floor, are fully in keeping with the medieval European style.
