For the best of my knowledge, this house was opened for tourist visits only 2 years ago. Boasts no queues, not yet popular among tourists crowding in lines to Pedrera and Batllo. Entrance fee is EUR12, can be bought only via internet, magic house. Rush to visit before it is popular among crowds as now it allows to get to... More

The chocolate entrepreneur Antoni Amatller engaged Josep Puig i Cadafalch (his other works are Casa Macaya and Casa de les Punxes, among others) to refurbish the building in 1898. The architect did that in the Neo-Gothic style with a touch of Nordic influence. The windows and facade decorations are among the most notable features of this stunning house.

I stumbled on this jewel when the lines at Casa Batlio next door were plain scary. Here I just walked in and purchased a ticket at the front desk for a guided tour leaving 2 hours later. The other reviews make it clear how beautiful the construction and the furnishings are. Although it's true that you can see many of... More

Amatler(almond) had a chocolate factory and had a lot of money so he commissioned Josep Puig(to be read POOCH) i Cadafalch to redesign an old house. We did the Express tour(30 minutes), they have also a guided tour (60 minutes) check the website for the hours. After the tour they give you free sample of chocolate. Highly underated, just as...

Casa Amatller was such a beautiful surprise. Unfortunately the place can not be visited without a guide which means you can not spend as much time as you like admiring the beauty of this place but, even so, it is a great experience. Actually my guide, a very nice and patient girl, explained me everything so well and answered all... More

This grand building to the left of the Casa Batllo. Although the house is by tour only, you can step into the lobby for free and it's definitely worth a peak with it's tiled floor and walls and the stained glass wall at the end. Don't be shy. Go all the way in until you see the stairs. Spend some... More

This house can be visited on a guided tour only but I recommend a visit. I booked my tour online (they are in different languages). The tour lasted for about 30 minutes. The building contains some lovely stained glass and is right next door to Casa Batlo. At the end of the tour, you get to sample some chocolate in... More

It's worth booking the tour you want (in your preferred language) ahead of time, as they do get filled up. We missed the longer tour but were lucky enough to be on our own for our express tour, so we didn't feel that we missed anything. It was far more extensive than we expected, and having the original furniture added... More

It was worthwhile visiting this house along with Casa Leo Morera nearby ( it is possible to buy a combined ticket for both houses for 21euros, which is good value), & Casa Batllo to gain an understanding of the Modernista movement in architecture that was occurring when Gaudi was designing his buildings. Casa Amatller was designed by Cadafalch, who was... More

Casa Amatller is situated on Passeig de Gracia. Lovely architecture and well worth a visit. Next to Casa Batlo. There is a fee to go in.

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
