The first thing you will notice when you enter Casa Battló is that most of the walls are curved and look like the skin of a dragon. By then you know that you have entered in a special house. Gaudi designed a wonderful building full of incredible detail. We used the audio tour which is really great. It explains the... More

A statement to the effect that something is the most beautiful thing of its kind in the world invariably raises doubts. However, with some experience (non-professional) in the internal design of several flats and houses and in my capacity as an Internet zombie (just like most other human beings of my age - and not only my age) having surfed...

We had seen La Familia Sagrada earlier in the day, so could not decide whether to see this Gaudi designed house. In the end we did and were not disappointed with what we saw. It is still over the top Gaudi, but different from the other. Lots and lots of interesting design and architecture. I did think it was overpriced,... More

We loved to see how this forward thinking architect created these structures so much more modern than the times.

One of the most unusual houses I have ever seen, Gaudi shows his excellent techniques and diverse use of materials to great effect, essential you book online before visiting, even at your hotel in the morning, to save long queues. Good place to avoid the autumn rain!

This amazing building is a Gaudi "re-furb" done for a wealthy client. The use of shape, texture, woods, glass, tiles and incredible imagination makes this an interesting private residence. An audio guide is available to understand the details. Since it is still privately owned, the entrance fee is a donation to keep this masterpiece available to see.

Of all the Gaudi designed buildings in Barcelona we enjoyed visiting Casa Batllo the most. All of the floors are open to visitors and the audio guide is very informative. Best to get there early and avoid any queues, but seeing the front elevation in the evening when it is lit is a delight. There is a hardware shop in... More

The house has many innovations that were ahead of the times. You have to see and experience the many different ideas and uses of color and imagination to really appreciate what Gaudi had done.
