The modernist building that has opened for touristic visits is called Casa Terradas and is popularly known as Casa de les Punxes (literally, the House with the spikes, in Catalan). The building was designed by the modernist architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch and it resembles Gothic castles due to its spikes on the rooftop, itis located on the avenue Diagonal.
