This former home of a chocolatier is a must-see, along with Casa Batllo, on the "Block of Discord." A great collection of turn-of-the-century memorabilia including an excellent glass collection. Original furnishings are intact. It had just been open to the public for six weeks when we took a tour with only six other people through the home. Go before it... More

This has just opened to the public for tours. We took the English tour and our guide was on her debut. She was enthusiatic but there was some difficulty with language and understanding. There was plenty to see, as much furniture remains and the original features are beautifully restored. However, the tour was a bit quick (about 40mins) and we... More

This beautiful building very next to the must see Casa Batllo, but unfortunately we can visit the lobby area only. This building designed by Joseph Puigi Cadafalch (not by Antoni Gaudi - most of the people misunderstood this also Gaudi's design), contains amazing stained glass interior. Maybe authorities will open this building in future to public, but for the moment... More

Its free to enter and you won't be in there for more than 10 minutes but you should go in as its 5 feet away from Casa Batllo a must see attraction and its a goodish photo opportunity that you can come and go as you please, it has an open door to the street that leads you to one... More

This modern style building is the neighbor of Casa Batlló. It is a jewel of our city, get in and have a look at the two vitraux one is opposed to the main door and the other is in the ceiling in the stairs. Pure delicacy!

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

If you are in the area, it's definitely worth popping your head into the lobby of this building to admire the interior. It's not open to the public beyond that but is a quiet little spot to take in some of the design style that Barcelona is so well known for.

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

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
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.
