enclosing wall and the entry door of the Miralles Estate,
located in the northern part of Barcelona and property
of Hermenegild Miralles, a printer established in Barcelona
and a good friend of Gaudís, who allowed
Gaudí to use the enormous presses in his workshops
to test the strength of the materials he wanted to use
in his works.
door of the Miralles Estate is large, and stands out
for its lobed arch shape, which includes entry for pedestrians
and carriages, as well as a large shelter that protects
one from the sun and the rain. The door has an undulating
enclosing wall, which Gaudí finished with wire
netting with metal points that jut out.
Currently, the door is perfectly conserved, but only
a section of the of the wall, which was 36 m long, remains.
Item of National Interest since 1969.
