Architecture, tiles, wood work and marble in this home is stunning. Right next door to Gaudi''s dragon home. The builder of the The home was one of europe's first chocolatiers. Really worth seeing. The guy had too much money.

This place is magical. This is right next to the famous Casa Batllo, and if you attend the tour, it is only like 30 minutes long and you get to see the wonderful principal which is where the family lived. It has the original furniture and all which is not common for these places, so you get to see how... More

This site is less flamboyant than Casa Batlo and Pedrerea Prk Guell, St Pau Hospital, and the Montaner concert hall. If you have time issues, definitely buy advance tickets for the latter and fit this in for a marked contrast. Several furnished rooms and colorful glass, topped off with a free chocolate sample from the downstairs shop. There are timed... More

I went on the last tour of the day and it was just myself and the guide. Beautifully preserved and designed with such style. With the last tour there was an offer of a thick chocolate and dipping bread which was an added bonus. Entry was around 11 euros so much cheaper than La Pedrera or Casa Batilo which although...

Located adjacent to Casa Batllo, Amatller is one of the highlights of Passeig de Garcia! A good opportunity for flicks!!

Gaudi, of course, deserves all the attention his legacy receives, but Gaudi wasn't the only architect working in Barcelona at the end of the 19th century/ beginning of the 20th. Next door to the Case Batlló, the Casa Amatller displays the work of Josep Puig i Cadafaich. It is of the same period as Saudi, and has a lot of... More

This building has a very Dutch-inspired facade beside Casa Battlo, and having done both, I would definitely recommend doing the tour for Casa Amatller as the house is fully-furnished and has some really beautiful furniture and windows. I was particularly impressed by the architect putting in motifs of the owner's life into the stonework. The house belonged to a chocolatier... More

We enjoyed our spur of the moment tour of a chocolatier's house designed by architect Josep Puig I Cadafalch. Just walked in and ended up on a private 30 min express tour. This beautiful, elegant home is filled with artistic details including gorgeous stained glass. Tour guide shared interesting stories about the Amatller family and the life they led at... More

Seemingly a poor cousin to its Gaudi neighbour but a house not to miss. Still with most of its original fixtures, fittings and furniture you are transported back to the early 1900s. An excellent tour guide explains the history of the interesting father and daughter chocolate family (ask about the wife/mother - very interesting) lives and adventures. For me I... 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.
