The most beautiful and the least famous of the main houses of BCN

This house is a real gem and unfortunately it's far less known than Casa Lleó i Morera and the two houses by Gaudí. This is also a pro though: it's never crowded, even in the high... read more

This house is a real gem and unfortunately it's far less known than Casa Lleó i Morera and the two houses by Gaudí. This is also a pro though: it's never crowded, even in the high season. The façade is quite strange but good-looking, but the interior is the real wonder of this building: every room is so richly and... More

I had an amazing one on one tour with a lovely guide. The house is amazingly beautiful. Mixes modernism with many other styles. Its truly an undiscovered jewel. Just next to Casa Batllo but sans the inmense line. Almost everything inside are originals. Well preserved house. 100% recommended.

I came upon this house accidentally, while strolling along the Passeig de Gracia. Originally, I'd wanted to see the inside of a Gaudi house, but the long line turned me off. I spoke to the attendants at Casa Amatller (literally lext door to Casa Batllo) and bought a ticket for the 5 pm tour. As there were only three of... More

We enjoyed seeing the buildings of this block, including Casa Balto. This is not One of Gaudi's; however, it is no less impressive. In fact it is these great buildings together that give this area its name. To me this property is every bit as decorated as Casa Balto. My son and I did get to go inside to see... More

Casa Amatler, designed by Josep Puig i Cadafalch, is next door to Casa Batllo. Only the lobby is open to the public but that is well worth a look.

We decided that we ought to visit one of the Modernista casas that was not built/designed by Gaudi! We visited early and had a guided tour of this marvellously preserved apartment. Our tour guide was the delightful Elena (sorry, not sure of the Catalan spelling of her name)who, whilst educating us, was charming, informative and extremely friendly. She made us... More

This beautiful house has only been open to the public for a couple of years and has not yet been "discovered" by the tourists. It can only be seen with a guided tour, which I booked at the entrance once there was someone at the desk. It is on the same block as Casa Battlo and worth finding time to... More

English tours were only available at 11am and 3pm when I visited but as I could not get there at those times I joined a tour in Catalan. However the tour guide was great and did some translating for me, and the house is so beautiful inside it was well worth it. Pricey admission (15 euros) but it was worth... More

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

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.
