Casa Batlló, Barcelona

(4.6/5 based on 36,000+ reviews on the web)
Located in the bustling city center and considered one of architect Antoni Gaudí’s signature works, Casa Batlló can perhaps best be described as a combination of Modernist and Art Nouveau architecture. Gaudí’s design goal seems to have been to avoid straight lines—completely. Much of the facade is decorated with mosaics made of broken ceramic tiles, ranging in shades from golden orange to greenish blue. The roof is arched and often described as resembling the back of a dragon or dinosaur, so it’s not surprising that most locals call the building "House of Bones." Originally built for a middle-class urban family, this is one of two Gaudí houses available for touring. Skip the lines by booking your tickets online.

  • Very good experience, starting with the audio guide included on the ticket. Works like a smartphone that several numbers that appear in the various divisions/home sites and as we got the one, carry on their number. There's also a way to see through the audio guide in 3D, as was the House when it was being inhabited with many virtual animations. Beautiful and unique architecture, typical of Gaudí, ending the tour on a terrace with a spectacular view over the rooftops of Barcelona. Perfect in the late afternoon.

  • Beautiful, original ... lights, sounds, colors, smells. The price may seem a bit high but so worth it. Also with the audioguide visiting gets even more interesting. Suggest you buy tickets online (just need the date and not the time)! VISIT HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

  • The building is wonderful, there is nothing not to like about it. The audio guided tour is well organized and helpful in understanding this great masterpiece. Bring your Student ID it will help you get a discount. The is a little pricey but well worth it consider the history. You have to see it!!!
  • We had an amazing time at Casa Batlló. The audio guide and augmented reality was fascinating and gave plenty of insights into the inspiration behind Gaudi's work. Gaudi thought about every little detail in this place from the feel and shape of the walls to the colours used across the building. His understanding of the importance of natural light and air shine through in this building and there is something truly amazing to see in every room. A must-see attraction on your trip to Barcelona 👌
  • Close to Catalunya Plaza about 10min walk. I Was a bit worried by the terrible comments at Trip Advisor. But overall had fun experience. Loved the interior designs and especially the audio telling me where the architect got his inspirations and the symbols of each unique parts of the building. There is a souvenior shop during the tour, so many items to buy!!! My mom especially loved the cup and the plate. Glad I didn't miss this wonderful place!
  • Not worth 22 Euro. We felt very robbed. There are no objects in the room. It was way over crowded for such small rooms. Casa Mila is much better. I highly recommend that if you're a fan of Gaudi. EDIT: We didn't know we had to take a video guide. The staff didn't tell us so we walked straight in and missed the video experience.
  • The building is really amazing and very renowned. The ticket price was €22.5, including of the audio guide which was very nice. The audio guide was well-organized and interactive so you can understand the meaning behind the casa very well. Highly recommend to visit here when you come to Barcelona!
