This building is spectacular, and my low rating should not be taken to reflect on the beauty and innovativeness of Gaudi's masterpiece. However, the audio tour that guides you through the house could, and should, be done better. Visiting in the high season, the building was crowded by the time we arrived at 10:30 and the long-winded, repetitive nature of... More

This fascinating property is fun for all ages. The audio guide (included in the price) is fantastic. There are so many beautiful and interesting details to be admired in Gaudi's work within this property. This should be on your list of must sees in Barcelona!

Exterior of this building is colorful and whimsical. Reminded me of New Orleans at Mardi Gra. As with all Gaudi buildings, visit inside as well as viewing the exterior. I made the mistake of only viewing the exterior to save time. Viewing photos of the interior clearly proved my decision to be a poor one. Next time in Barcelona, and... More

I was amazed to find out that the overall casa interior and exterior doesn't contain a single piece of straight line. Every inch is nicely curved. The exterior gives out the vibe of a "house made out of bones". the balconies represent top part of a human skull. Inside of the house represents a giant marine life. The staircase railing... More

This house makes a great contrast to the Sagrada Familia. It is remarkable for being so cozy and so much in tact--not overly renovated. It is great to see the servants quarter, laundry room etc., as well as the main rooms, and the roof top terrace is a treat. People complain of long lines, but I got off the Barcelona... More

You just have to see it. Hard to imagine such design around 1900. Great architecture and fun to explore the house. For sure, buy the ticket and go see the house.

It is not that much impressive if you are not into art, interior design or aesthetic. However I enjoyed a lot since it is very creative and it was very nice to walk around with the audio guide and learn so much detail. What was Gaudi thinking, sea life?

The building is representative of Gaudi's style. There are many people near it. I like balconies the most.

It's a beautiful building, yet the amount of tourists, and the focusing on the Barcelona brand instead of the Gaudí brand makes this place feel less authentic.
