Casa Batllo, Barcelona

4.6
Located in the bustling city center and considered one of architect Antoni Gaudí’s signature works, Casa Batllo 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.

  • Get the audio tour for this because they have it set up with video of what the rooms in the house looked like at the time. Very creative way to see the exhibit. The details in the architecture are...  more »
  • A dream home. Unique, bright, cheerful, functional. I suggest getting the "Early Morning" tickets online. It was worth the extra cost. We were there before opening and already a lineup.  more »
  • It is a marvelous residential building with many interesting rooms and a beautiful rooftop. Book tickets in advance and walk on the roof to see the unique combination of colors used by Gaudi!  more »

  • Beautiful piece of art, architecture, and design. The interior is amazing and the audio guide provides a lot of interesting information and unique visual augmentation as well. This is a must see and worth every penny. Plan to spend about an hour.
  • It was good, but not amazing. After going would I go again...nope. would I recommend it, not 100% tip, book gold tickets. With silver and bronze the queues are still massive. I turned up booked gold for €2s more than silver and saved a 45 min wait easily
  • I have visited Casa Batlló twice. The first time, in 2010, the building was well maintained and filled with beautiful furniture. The second time, in 2019, construction banging was happening all over the building, the maintenance was poor, and the house was completely empty. 2010 was a much more pleasant and educational visit.
  • It’s a remarkable place. Amazing architecture. Didn’t have to wait long so buy ticket online. The headphone is re-use so maybe bring your own padding.
  • This is such beautiful architecture! Just as priceless today as it was 130+ years ago! However I wish it were still a community living center as intended. All should be able to appreciate such a work of art and such a truly unique and timeless creation.
