This house was built in 1875, and in 1898 it was bought by confectioner Antonio Amalier. He also commissioned Puig-i-Cadafalk, the famous architect, to restore the building. Many craftsmen and artists took part in the restoration. During the work, the house was decorated and redeveloped.
The facade of the house harmoniously combines features of the Moorish and Gothic styles: sculptures at the door, carvings on the bay window and lanterns on the balcony. There is also an allegorical portrait of its owner on the facade of the house.
Today, the Amatlle Institute of Spanish Art is located on the top floor of the building. This organization researches Spanish art.
House Amalier is located in the Eixample district. The houses of Lleo Morera and Batllo stand right next to it. They are all part of the Quarter of Disagreement, which was named so because of the stylistic differences between the buildings in it.
