Casa Amatller, Barcelona

4.4
#39 of 127 in Sightseeing in Barcelona
Architectural Building Landmark
Fascinatingly geometric, Casa Amatller represents a prime example of the Modernisme architectural style. Considered one of the three most important buildings in Barcelona, the 20th-century structure features a pyramid-like roof and an interior lined with intricate columns and stained-glass windows. It was originally built for chocolatier Amatller Antoni Costa, and the ground floor of the residence has been restored to preserve the atmosphere of its first owner. Tours of the house are offered at specific times and for small groups; book tickets in advance or in the lobby of the building.

  • Very professionally guided visit to the house. There's a coffee shop on the ground floor, where you can get one of the best coffees in town and a tasty chocolate hardly found elsewhere.
  • Amazing building, a contemporary of Gaudí, which combines the neo-Gothic style
  • It's well worth a visit as it's a beautifully designed house with all the furniture preserved and placed around the house so as to reconstruct the original set up. And therefore it's possible to see how the owners lived and admire the house's beauty in full. You can even see the kitchen with it's original furniture (which today is a part of the downstairs cafe). Out of all the modernist houses I've visited in Barcelona I've probably enjoyed this one the most.
  • Beautiful house. You can also taste the chocolate in the coffee shop. Great atmosphere, the guys working there are the best
  • Much less crowded than the other modernist house next door. They seemed quite surprised that we had planned to go there and weren't trying to go to Casa Batlló. The lack of other visitors meant we got a personal tour from a lovely guide. Much darker than Casa Batlló, and not so naturalistic inside but nevertheless uses quite a lot of modernist techniques. Tours include a free chocolate! Don't miss if you have the time.

Where to stay in Barcelona

Because the city's metro system makes traveling from area to area relatively painless, you have more flexibility in choosing a place to stay. Barceloneta, the neighborhood surrounding the city beach is somewhat removed from the city center, making its hotels popular with families. Only a 15-minute walk from the center, Barceloneta has a more laid-back beach atmosphere but still offers several restaurants and entertainment options. Farther away from the beach and closer to the city center, El Born is a charming neighborhood well-known for its restaurants and lively bar scene. Eixample is also popular as it is more central and home to some of the city's best shopping and tourist sites, including La Sagrada Familia. For a more traditional experience, consider staying in the Gothic Quarter, the heart of Old Barcelona. This picturesque neighborhood boasts a tight network of historical architecture with boutique hotels and traditional restaurants.
