Gorgeous mosaic work on the facade, roof, and back terrace. Inside has interesting architecture and some stained glass which is nice, but not as nice as the mosaic work.

The facade is exceptionally eye pleasing with the characteristic Gaudi mosaic design. The same could be said for the courtyard. However I expected the same from the interiors.

We bought our tickets online ahead of time and didn't have to wait in line which can get quite long. The tour at Casa Batllo was like being in a Johnny Depp movie. Everything had a reason for why it was the way it was. I was very intrigued in finding out more about Gaudi.

It was just amazing to see how Gaudi coupled aesthetics with the functional: the organic forms hide very thorough knowledge of materials and technical reality. It is really beautiful and inspiring for present day architects and engineers.

One of the must sees when in Barcelona, the architecture is absolutely astounding. It is easy to get to with the metro and the audio guide you receive upon entry is very informative about Gaudi.

One of the best places to see Gaudì's genius in action. Guided tour very well structured. Audioguide included in the ticket (both for adults and children). Totally worth the ticket! ps. book online and include fast pass to avoid queues.

Quite pricey but definitely worth a visit, with an included audio guide you learn some very interesting facts about Gaudi's crazy architecture. Get there before 10.30 to avoid too many tourists being in your photos of the house!
