The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.
How to get there
  • Passeig de Gràcia • 4 min walk
  • Provença • 8 min walk

Casa Batllo was probably my favorite part of visiting Barcelona. We booked directly through the Casa Batllo website and opted for the “Gold” self guided tour for €35/each.

When we arrived just before 10am there was already a bit of a queue going, but with the gold tour you completely skip the line and go right in. I recommend scheduling as early as possible because the house does get really crowded.

The gold tour allowed us to enter a room that wasn’t available to any of the other tours - make sure you get your photo taken on the settee! They also gave us a free bottle of water when we exited the room.

The audio guide was great and I really liked the augmented reality part. I’m normally a huge fan of private guides, but we thought the audio guide they provided was perfect and I don’t think the tour is really long enough to warrant getting a guide.

Even the gift shop was awesome. I never (ever!!!) buy souvenirs but I bought a few pieces of fun Gaudi inspired jewelry and even an illustrated print of Casa Batllo.

I absolutely love Gaudi and to me, Casa Batllo is his most whimsical and fun work. It really is magical - make sure you don’t skip it when you visit Barcelona!

If you admire Gaudi architecture, you have to visit Casa Batllo. It is a most-do while in Barcelona. The audio-guide is fantastic. It tells a story and automatically starts the story as you enter each room. However, the EUR 36 ticket price is extremely exprensive. It can be cost prohibitive to many people, especially students. Please consider lowering your prices.

There are currently 2 different visits on offer. One is the torchlight visit and the other is the daytime visit. There are different levels of daytime visits available offering priority access and access to an additional area. The restoration is being funded by paid tourist visits and the audio guide provides some fascinating information about the project. It also superimposes furniture into the rooms to show how they may have looked in the past. What a fascinating structure!

Casa Batllo is an architectural treasure, but you probably should pass on paying the exorbitant fee to visit the interior of this house. My wife and I paid the 25 euro each fee, buying tickets online in advance. This saved us 4 euro each to buy online and the price included an audio/video guide: Our take: even during the low season, the place is too crowded and 25 euro each is too expensive. Unless you’re a huge architecture or Gaudí fan (or are not worried about money at all), save your money, see the exterior of the building, and visit some of the other sights in the city instead, including the less costly and far more essential Sagrada Família.

To management: An appropriate fee for Casa Battlo would be around 10-15 euro each given pricing for other sights in the city.

After being scammed for the price at the casa mila we just looked from outside. Cause ye that thing cost 40 Euro. More than twice the price of Versailles. Come on that's ridiculous. I didn't go inside but you need to be aware of the price before being disappointed. I spent less money in 2 days in Paris seeing some of the world wonders meanwhile here it would cost be almost 70 Euro to see 2 houses and the casa mila was under construction. Big big scam.

We queued for this attraction at 4.30pm on weekend of 11/12th July. We worked our way through the casa and it was maybe unsurprisingly sparse. All are provided with a tour with headphones in respective language. We did take a few photos and really enjoyed our time here. It was rather expensive to get in (the most expensive of all of our visits to attractions but worth it I think as a) I really wanted to see it and b) the fee is used to upkeep the venue.

When inside the casa we saw the queue forming and felt glad that we visited early and had the place to ourselves and was able to really to soak in the atmosphere of the building.

As we didn't purchase the tickets in advance, it was nice to discover no queues on a February afternoon.
The audio guide tries to fill in the gaps, by displaying some firnishings etc, as the house itself is completely bare.
It clearly once was a fabulous home, but the current maintenance does it little justice. From broken skirtings, to faded woodwork and some damaged walls, the building is sadly not looking its best.
The entry charge is steep, and no concessions (which makes it a very dear experience with 3 children in tow). There are further attempts to make you part with even more money, as entry to some areas is an extra €10 (yes, children are chareged too), and a photo opportunity, which could be nice,starts at €12 a pic(though the pgotographer assured me it would be only €6). Again, I would have been happier to support the conservation of this interesting structure had it been treated better.

Dear user Michal B, Thank you for visiting Casa Batllo and sharing your opinion publicly. In reference to your comment, we regret that your visit to this World Heritage, recognized as a legend of the art, architecture and timeless design, thanks to the immense creativity displayed by Gaudí, has not matched your expectations. Through the most advanced video tour guide in the world, delivered to all visitors at the entrance, you are given the opportunity to see an enhanced reality virtually. With this guide you can discover how the Batlló family lived in Barcelona in the early twentieth century, especially getting to see the original furniture and decoration, besides knowing all of Gaudí ́s creative universe reflected in this building. Also at the entrance of the Casa Batllo shop located on the first floor, you can see several chairs designed by Gaudí for this House. For maintenance and influx of public it is not feasible to leave them in their original position. Also several pieces of hand crafted furniture are now in the collection of different museums.

We paid for our admission and audio guide at the Barcelona tourist info and were happy to get a 5:30 admission which allowed us to see the incredible rooftop in daylight as well as at night. There were beautiful views of Barcelona from up there in all directions. Inside we were mesmerized by how Gaudi married beauty and function in designing this amazing house. The audio guide was informative and we found that the Casa Batllo wasn't nearly as crowded as some of his other properties but allowed us to appreciate his work at our own pace. It was definitely much more pallatable to the crowds and noise at the other more popular properties.

So much to see, pictures have captured beautiful memories. Visited the Sagrada Familia several times. We had the opportunity to attend the Sunday Chapel service, It was an amazing experience. The Cable car ride, Big Bus city tours , Day passes were just perfect to see as much as we can.

The building is a true masterpiece - outstanding facade and unique interior. The two problems we had during the visit are: 1) The price for tickets is more expensive in person, which is not mentioned online on the page for ticket info. We could totally buy it online but we didn’t see a necessity, so we didn’t. Then we found out on the spot about the difference when it was too late already. In my opinion this should be written on the website when you check the price and the hours. 2) The house was extremely overcrowded. We visited on Monday around 11 AM and there were no timed tickets. Everybody was entering. Inside you couldn’t move and it was a real struggle to take photos. People were pushing. I got very irritated at some point. Couldn’t fully enjoy the architecture and design that I came for.
So my advice is to buy tickets online and maybe try lunch time, when everybody goes to eat.

Dear user KatrinaMolini, We greatly appreciate your opinion. In reference to your comment, we are sorry you found lot of people during your visit. Many people obviously decided to visit this World Heritage site at the same time as you. It is one of the most visited monuments in Barcelona and for this reason, we at Casa Batlló, always recommend coming to visit the House first thing in the morning or the last thing in the evening as these are the times when there are fewer people. However, we take your comment on board. Your opinions are very helpful for us to provide a responsible use for this heritage house. Thank you for sharing your opinion. Yours sincerely, Casa Batllo Barcelona
