The Casa de les Punxes, also known as Casa Terradas, stands as one of the most prominent icons of Barcelona, playing a crucial role in the understanding of Catalan modernism. Conceived by the architect Puig i Cadafalch between 1903 and 1905, commissioned by the Terradas family, this building is an architectural testimony of great relevance.

For more than a century, this majestic building remained off-limits to the public, but in 2016, its doors were finally opened. This modernist space, imbued with a magical air inspired by Wagnerian castles, is the ideal place to host exclusive events. Its three distinctive areas demonstrate elegance and distinction.

La Casa de les Punxes a place in Barcelona to visit and be dazzled.

At the apex of the structure, the Wagnerian rooftop dazzles with privileged views of Barcelona and its emblematic monuments such as Tibidabo and the Sagrada Familia. The characteristic “Punxes”, or spikes, frame this platform, and when the soft lighting bathes the iconic towers at sunset, the scenery takes on an unparalleled charm. The terrace, which extends over 600 m² and occupies an entire block of the Eixample, is presented as a unique space.

The Puig i Cadafalch penthouse, on the other hand, offers three interconnected areas that stand out for their flexibility and adaptability, providing a space that maintains the original decoration: hydraulic pavements and leaded stained glass windows, accompanied by the 1905 fireplace. A private balcony and multiple accesses, including the modernist elevator, complement this area.

Barcelona’s futuristic and modern architecture

On the Noble floor, which is part of the museum’s exhibition space, there are several interconnected rooms covering 280 m² of modernism. Natural lighting and original decorative elements create a distinctive atmosphere. A variety of events can be held in this enclave, such as meetings, presentations, congresses, fashion shows, private parties and exhibitions.

A space for creativity

La Casa de les Punxes becomes a blank canvas for creativity and the splendor of events. Its versatility allows it to adapt to different needs, also offering cultural visits as a complementary activity.
