Located in the bustling city center and considered one of architect Antoni Gaudí’s signature works, Casa Batllo can perhaps best be described as a combination of Modernist and Art Nouveau architecture. Gaudí’s design goal seems to have been to avoid straight lines—completely. Much of the facade is decorated with mosaics made of broken ceramic tiles, ranging in shades from golden orange to greenish blue. The roof is arched and often described as resembling the back of a dragon or dinosaur, so it’s not surprising that most locals call the building "House of Bones." Originally built for a middle-class urban family, this is one of two Gaudí houses available for touring. Skip the lines by booking your tickets online.

The roof looks like a dragon, harmonious and magical forms of glass inside. Worth seeing, the ticket for visiting is expensive, who can do it online (a small discount, and we don't row..) ... Well worth it!!
Similar a la Sagrada Familia, impresiona la forma de ver y sentir la arquitectura por parte de Gaudí.Vale la pena la visita. more »Similar to the Sagrada Familia, impress how to see and feel the visit worthwhile architecture by Gaudi.vale.
It is lovely! And the staff is attentive. When I went I bought my ticket online and it accidentally charged me for an extra ticket but the staff remained in contact with me and refunded the money for the extra ticket. Buy your tickets online ahead of time because the price is higher at the door. It is a bit expensive to go in but it is a price that is worth paying because it is beautiful and enchanting. It is like being in a fairy tale house and the roof has a beautiful view of Barcelona. You can also get an audio tour guide and if you’re a fan of history or architecture it is so worth it!
Loved the experience. Peculiar thing to notice during your visit. When you start going up the stairs you'll notice that on both sides of the lift there is a skylight and the walls are tiled with light colours at the bottom going darker as you reach the top to absorb the light better. As you reach the top floor you'll notice the two corners at the top are decorated in such a way that they reflect light. But if you look at the two corners on the other side you'll notice that only one is decorated and reflects light. The staff didn't have an answer as to why that is, so hopefully they'll answer my email I have sent them asking why that is.
