If you are visiting Barcelona, chances are you will stroll along Las Ramblas at some point. If you do, make sure you look for this cool building. It’s around halfway between Plaça Catalunya and the Columbus monument (on the left as you head toward Columbus)....More
The beautiful Metropolis, Barcelona, has so many wonderful buildings.
Casa Bruno Quadros is on of them.
It i situated on the east side of the Rambla.

Others have given more detailed reviews -- I just wanted to say that I was delighted when this building caught me unawares. I had not researched the area and it was one of many fun sights along La Rambla.
Strolling down La Rambla we easily spotted this building for the quirky use of umbrellas all over it and the dragon bursting out from the corner of it.
The umbrellas are a tribute to the buildings former use as an umbrella factory.
As with much of the architecture in Barcelona, this has an intriguing facade and a wonderful dragon sign. It's on La Rambla, so you won't miss it if you're near La Bouqueria, which is across the street. Worth a few moments of study and appreciation....More
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-metre boulevard, and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll past impressive human statues and artists while others take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and
appetising selections of local produce and specialty meats and treats. While it’s important for tourists to keep an eye on their belongings at all times, this area is most safely explored in the daytime and is a must see for everyone who visits.
