Casa Llopis i Bofill


Casa Llopis i Bofill is an interesting block of flats designed by Antoni Gallissà (1861–1903) in 1902. The graffiti-covered, oriental-inspired facade is particularly striking, with its glassed-in balconies, while the use of elaborate parabolic arches on the ground floor is a clear Modernista touch, as are the wrought-iron balconies.
