Casa Amatller, Barcelona

(4.3/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The mansion of medieval inspiration as Puig i Cadalfach built for an industrialist and daughter (old). If the House does not breathe the joy of living, it's a perfect testimony, beautifully furnished and restored, the catalan Art nouveau historicisante trend.

  • This place is highly recommended if you want to visit it with your partner or family. You can entertain all kinds of people by the great modernist art located in this House.

  • Is not one of Gaudí 's works but is a work of the same era worth totally worth it. The line is a lot smaller and the tour turns out to be more customized. It has beautiful details that will fascinate architects and laypeople, like the casa Batlló. The visit ends in a spectacular coffee full of chocolates Amatler family brand. It's worth it!

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Beautiful house. You can also taste the chocolate in the coffee shop. Great atmosphere, the guys working there are the best
  • We visited Casa Amatller right after doing Batllo. In our opinion Amatller was way more interesting. the house, furniture, door knobs, window pulls are all designed by Josep Puig i Cadafalch so they are all in perfect harmony with each other. It is nearly 100% original, including the furniture, books, art, and all. It was created a couple of years before Casa Batllo which probably made Mr. Batllo jealous of the sweet house Mr Amatller had. The tours are guided by real people rather than audio guide like Batllo. And because it is fully furnished, and is way less famous which means 1/100th of the number of people, it is just more intimate, really engaging and fantastically fun. If you like Modernisme at it's best, you must check out Casa Amatller!
  • Like Paul Van Metre (review also published) I visited Casa Amatller after seeing Casa Batllo, and was so pleased that I did. Amatller is a great example of the time, and it was so interesting to see a complete house, with furniture, door knobs, window pulls etc all designed by Josep Puig i Cadafalch. I was the only one on my tour, so had a truly personal experience, and my tour guide was so interesting and engaging. It was lovely to be in a real home, and to feel as though I was getting a special private insight into the lives of the owner and his daughter. A hidden delight and highly recommended.
