5 Architectural Facts about Casa Batlló

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.

Noble Room

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 Batllo

The guide was excellent. I'd definitely recommend this tour.

Loved the tour. Marc was an excellent and knowledgable guide. He really helped to enhance my experience of Gaudi and his work, his genius and his religious devotion. If you're looking for a walking tour, I'd definitely recommend this one.
Gaudí Free Walking Tour in Barcelona Reviewed by Kate, 10/15/2016

This was quite possibly the best thing that I did in Barcelona!

This was an incredible experience for my entire family. Our guide, Miguel, was charming, knowledgeable, and really gave us a unique perspective into the life and works of Gaudi. He was also very understanding and got us to the Sagrada Familia in time for our reservation there, we were only upset that we weren't able to hear that part of his tour!!! Again, I stress what a wonderful experience we had.

Barcelona: 3-Hour Bike Tour with Guide Reviewed by Claire, 10/04/2016

Our tour guide Aids was knowledgeable, passionate, and entertaining.

The tour was amazing! The company should invest in upgrading their audio system (You had to be very close to the guide to not get static), but the tour itself was wonderful. Aida, our guide, was intelligent, funny, passionate, and made the history come alive.
