You can't go to Barcelona without taking in some Gaudi and this is a great example of his work that is open to explore. I recommend signing up for a guided Gaudi tour or buying tickets in advance to get you past the lines.

Wonderful experience seeing one of Gaudi's finest work. Bring wide camera lens to capture every detail of each room. Love the details of each door and the audio tour explains a lot about the design to better understand the concept behind the design.

After reading all of the reviews, we decided to go for Casa Batllo and we were not disappointed. We went on a Sunday and there was hardly a line at all, just as I had read in other reviews, so we saved ourselves the extra "fast track" fee. We did pay extra for the for the premium video guide.

Fortunately we went early and pre-booked. Once inside the audio system worked well. There was a lift for people who would find the stairs, which there were a lot of, difficult. The woodwork has to be seen to be believed. Well worth a visit.

How ingenious was Gaudi with his practical designs, not only elegant and unique but useful on an everyday basis so many, many years ago. The craftsmanship and woodwork is stunning, the ventilation and use of color to disperse light through all floors is ingenious, well worth the visit.

Yes, it is a highly promoted, over crowded destination in Barcelona, over run by all manner of tourists. BUT, you must go anyway. This place is a gem of architectural and interior design. I mean it is awesome. Also, booking tickets on-line is a must and it's easy. Cuts out all the lines. The audio guide is good. Don't get... More

Absolutely stunning art nouveau building by Antoni Guadi. I absolutely loved it - it was utterly unique and a feast for the senses. It actually made me happy! We queued for about 15 minutes and the entrance fee wasn't cheap - about 20 euros - but it was definitely worth it. If you're given a booklet of money off tickets... More

As the title says it's way to overpriced. The digital handheld is absolutely not worth the money. Not to mention the quick access option you can choose. Ok, sometimes there are queues, but the wait shouldn't be long. The building itself is nice, but lacks of some more interesting details in my opinion.

Aside from Sagrada Familia and Parc Guell, Casa Batllo was my favorite of the modernisme architecture in Barcelona.
