Punxa House

House of Punxa is located opposite the beach of the Barques, the most central village of l'Escala, a strategic place for fishing trade.

This is the case of the Gothic style building built in 1919 as ice plant, with circular tower and conical crown (with a little ceramic decoration) projecting to the left of the façade.
