I too was passing by the building and went into the lobby. I did see some beautiful stained glass there. I talked to the woman in the lobby and asked her what the construction was about and she said that they are renovating the building to turn it into a tourist attraction. So maybe next year it may be opened... More

We were in line for Casa Batllo tickets, when a group of Spanish schoolgirls doing a school project interviewed us about our visit to Barcelona. They recommended this building, and so do we. Located next door to Casa Batllo, it is well worth a 10 minute visit. Drop into the lobby and take a look around. Unfortunately, can't go beyond... More

This building gives the impression that it has stepped out of northern Germany or Holland. Yet,interestingly,the decorations on the doorway and window frames are reminiscent of late medieval Castilian art. Local material,ceramic cladding and flat stucco,create an engaging surface to the structure. Its pretty and is makes one feel that this is Spanish living-art in situ. The interior gives a... More

Hidden gem next to Gaudi's Cassa Batillo. The house itself is closed to the public, but the lobby can still be admired. Make sure visit it!!!

This is the fancy building to the immediate left of Casa Battlo and is a famous Barcelona landmark. It is not open to the public but enjoy it's beauty from the outside and go visit the interior of next door's Casa Battlo.

A very colorful building towards the left of Casa Batllo. This one surprisingly is not by Gaudi, although it showcases modernisme architecture like Gaudi structures. We didnt have ample time to go inside to explore further, but spent 10-15 mins enjoying the exterior. Must see!!
