Casa Amatller, Barcelona

4.6
#110 of 1,561 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.

  • We went to visit the Casa Batlló, which is right next to the Casa Amatller ... and as the Casa Batlló was full conpletamente, we go in the House ... and worth Amatller completely worth it you know the story ... we were transported to the 1900 lifestyle!

  • Had not visited it on the inside and the truth that had missed a gem. It's great to see how reach the Catalonian modernists solutions full of beauty and originality. He had not seen more than by the work of Puch Calafall abroad. And you wonder. Mood from here to not pass them like me and visit it as soon as they can

  • 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.
  • Recommended cafeteria with great Ametller liquid hot chocolate, very tasty. If possible also visit its interior. The building was originally designed as a residence for chocolatier Antoni Amatller and was constructed between 1898 and 1900.
  • The English tour from 11 a.m. (went there on Friday) only has one attendance - me. All furniture well kept and explained, compared to countable furniture left in Gaudi's Casa Batlo. You could find how everything fits the whole architecture design. The style is mixed and totally different from Batlo, really worthy of visit.
  • 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.
  • Really lovely tour of a gorgeous apartment that ends in a chocolate shop. What is not to like? Less crowded thsn the Gaudi sites, but with all of the modernismo charms.

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.
