Casa Batlló, Barcelona
Categories: Monuments, Landmarks, Museums, Tourist Spots
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.

Once inside, however, a visit repays the cost of the ticket. The shapes of the rooms (without straight walls!) and the technical solutions used make it understand why Gaudí was considered one of the most important architects of his time. Very nice room on the first floor from where you have a wide view of the street below, both inner courtyards, the plays of light caused by using different colored tiles. The complete tour takes more than an hour.show original

Everything in this House recalls the marine world, from air vents that simulate the gills of fish, the colors used, the parapets of the inner courtyard that simulate the sea. With the smart guide you appreciate even more this masterpiece and the genius of this architect. On the top floor you can take a photo on the terrace, which you can then print out (surcharge).show original

Definitely recommended. It is a very interesting place, just like the other buildings designed by Gaudi. It must be visited along with a video or audio guide. Otherwise, you wouldn't get to know the ideas behind its design, which are pretty interesting. However, although they try to limit the number of people inside, it still gets overly crowded. This takes the fun out of it a little bit, especially on a warm day.
Great visit experience, the building is very nice and the style is totally different than anything else, except other Gaudi's buildings. The tour includes augmented reality videoguide and the tickets can be purchased online, to skip the line. The fast pass line is not worth it, as there is not a crowd at the entry, only at the ticket booth. The visit tour consists in the apartment at the first floor, the backyard garden, the staircase, the attic and the roof.

Must see for anyone visiting Barcelona. Absolutely beautiful example of Gaudi's work. The tour is great - super interesting and very cool, using augmented reality via handsets they give you. Really beautiful rooms and furniture and good views of the city from the roof.
Great example of some of Gaudi's early work. The tour experience itself is quite good and has been improved in recent years. All tours come with an audio guide and a nice AR handheld that shows how each room was furnished at that time period. I personally like Casa Milá (La Pedrera) slightly more.
amazing place in amazing city. barcelona is one of the most friendly and cozy city in europe. Visit it while spring and better 23th april
