    Casa Comalat

    by MM212 Updated Sep 25, 2008

    One of the most interesting Modernista buildings in Barcelona, Casa Comalat has two entirely different façades. The main side, located on Avinguda Diagonal (seen in the attached photos), is topped by a green tiled roof and contains flamboyant floral decorations around the balconies and irregularly shaped windows, all clearly inspired by Gaudí. The back side, on Carrer Còrsega, looks like a completely different building. It is quite colourful, mixing in greens and pinks, and is irregular in shape. It contains no straight walls... a little hard to describe and unfortunately I have no photo to show. Perhaps on my next visit, I'll make it a point to take one! Casa Comalat was designed by Salvador Valeri Pupurull and completed in 1908.

    Built by Salvador Valeri in 1911 this is a fine example of Modernist architecture in L'Eixample. It is used now as office space for lawyers and I am unaware of any interior tours. The exterior appears to be inspired by Gaudi's love of nature. It truly stands out from all the rest of the buildings which surround it.

    This building was built by Salvador Valeri. When you'll see it you'll notice he was very influence by Gaudi. The bottom side reminds me "La Pedrera". The top side represents an arlequin hat.
    You won't be able to enter but at least you can take some nice photos. You have to visit it cause many tourists don't know it exists and is very close to Passeig de Gracia and Casa Terrades.
