Puig i Cadafalch

The narrow east facade on Carrer del Bruc

Unlike the west end, this facade is symmetrical. Like the others, however, a large polychrome ceramic panel accents the roof line. Rounded arches, rather than the exaggerated pointed arches of the other facades, are used both for windows and lower arcades.

Elaborate stone carving and spectacular wrought iron

According to Permanyer, the "following craftsmen worked under instructions from Puig i Cadafalch: Alfons Juyol, who was responsible for the stone sculpture; Manuel Ballarin, for the wrought iron. . . " (120).
