Casa Amatller, Barcelona

4.6
#104 of 1,537 in Things to do in Barcelona
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.

  • A work of Josep Puig i Cadafalch. Very nice on the outside, beautiful on the inside. The furniture is almost complete, with very nice curtains and lamps. I did the guided visit and recommend it for explanations of the guide very good and attentive. The Group was reduced so I could very well make the visit. On the ground floor there is a nice confectionary where gave us to try chocolate and there is located the House's original kitchen

  • Must see in Barcelona! Best Art Deco architecture. Don’t miss it. People passing by without knowing what a treasure hiding inside. Preserved private house of a wealthy man. The tour include a very taste hot chocolate, on the first level of the house, once was the kitchen area and now coffee shop.
  • By far one of the best tours / museums in Barcelona, on par with Casa Batlló. You’re taken back in time through a modernist building with all original furnishings, left just as it was and well preserved. It was owned by a famous chocolatier, Amatller, and at the end you’re given a hot chocolate, which was the best I’d ever had!!!! Can’t recommend this more - was very surprised there weren’t more people!!
  • In my opinion, much more interesting than Casa Battlo (although that was worth visiting as well). The interiors have been lovingly cared for and many of the original furnishings are preserved in place. You will be asked to wear shoe covers (provided) to help protect the interiors, showing how seriously they take the conservation of the building. Whether you do the video guide tour or guided tour, you will be accompanied by a guide. The woman who led our video guide tour was extremely knowledgeable beyond what was stated in the guide and happily answered any questions. One bit of advice: bring your own headphones, as the ones provided are very uncomfortable! After the tour, peruse the chocolate shop on the first floor (the family brand) and have lunch in the adjoining cafe.
  • I love this place. Its my second time to visit here. Everything still be well kept and i can learn the histiory of interior and design from that. Furniture and decoration is so great! The tour is flexible i can take time to take lot of pictures!!
  • Beautifully preserved and cared for. Crowds are a non-factor, especially in comparison to the other famous buildings. The hot chocolate at the end is exquisite.
