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.

  • History

    1. History

    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.

  • Architecture

    2. Architecture

    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

    3. 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.

  • Interior

    4. Interior

    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.

  • Roof

    5. Roof

    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.

She was fabulous. We walked around the Jewish quarter and stopped at various locations. At that time she showed visuals and explained the history of the Jewish people as well as the history of Spain. She connected the various information in a concise manner. She pointed out many things that we just overlooked. The palace walls were made from Jewish headstones. Most were not visible to the eye but there were a few stones in Hebrew. We saw where the inquisition was held. We passed the office of the rulers who administered the inquisition.

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.

Kurt was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of information regarding the area. We enjoyed his insight and personable nature. The town of Tarragona is very historically interesting, and picturesque.

I will rate the Best of Gaudi as excellent. The Montserrat is not as good as I expected. Not much time to enjoy the place. Guide not giving information and hard to understand. He was sick too.

The guide was very knowledgeable. I only wish that this tour had started earlier as it was dark while we were still in the Park
