Top sights in Barcelona
Antoni Gaudí saw nature as his muse and used its patterns and shapes to create architectural masterpieces. Casa Batlló is one example that reflects his ingenious imagination, and it should top your list when visiting Barcelona.
In 1904, the Batlló family asked Gaudí to turn their building into an unrivaled showpiece and allowed him free rein to bring his whims of creativity to life. He clearly succeeded.
Gaudí's technqiue, with the use of stone, glass, color, and abstract shapes on Casa Batlló's undulating facade and in its interior, illustrates his brilliance of Catalan Modernism.
It's where the Batlló family lived, and it exudes sheer elegance. The mushroom-shaped alcove, with benches to sit by a fire, is an example of Gaudí's gifted mind at work.
The use of warm tones and wood creates a harmonious flow throughout. The building's shaft, lined with cool shades of exquisite, blue tiles, fills Casa Batlló with natural light.
Eccentric chimneys rise behind what appears to be the contour of a dragon's back, which crowns the roof. The sequence of colored tiles enhances the effect of a scaly surface.

What people are saying about Casa Batlló
The tour is well organised and the advanced booking is fundamental to skip the queue and to enjoy the best of the entire experience since the first instant. Casa Batlo’ is perfectly maintained In all its details (tiles, azulejos, lamps, furnitures...) and even the home perfume You can smell inside reminds of a 1900s luxury bourgeois house. Highly recommended
It’s good, just okay. I honestly think it’s very pricey for $30 admission, but I understand it’s a UNESCO site. It’s very crowded on the inside. Though the guide is cool. If you’re really into architecture and more wanting to know Gaudi’s work, then go buy the ticket in advance. Buying it online is better than buying the ticket on site.
This is a complete tour of Gaudí’s work in Barcelona: Sagrada Familia. Park Güell and Casa Battlo. We went from one location to the other in a bus. Park Guell is just so charming and definitely a must visit in Barcelona. It’s also a bonus to walk the street of Passeig de Gracia and see Casa Milà on our way to Casa Battlo.
Great audio guide throughout the house, you do have to queue with the blue ticket unfortunately with everyone else unless you upgrade to a silver ticket. I went in January and still had to queue for 30 minutes. I expected this in any case so it didn't bother me. The house is stunning and well worth a look!
This is a beautiful building inside and outside,designed in the unusual and true Gaudi style.Everything and everywhere you look is a marvel to the senses,from the colours and textures, to the light and natural form around you--absolutely stunning and well worth a visit.
