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 skip-the-line tickets are nice although the timing that we visited Casa Batllo and La Sagrada Familia on a Sunday also seemed less busy. There were 15 of us and it was a good group size and with the earphones, it was easy to hear the narration and jokes by Javier. However I thought Javier could have done a better job ensuring that all 15 of us were together before moving off to different spots to explain the attractions. The transportation was comfortable and prompt by David.
The hop on hop off bus was a great way to see all over the city and get off at certain points. We did the whole tour first and stayed on for one circuit, then decided where we wanted to get off later. Having the commentary explain what everything was, was really helpful. The buses came every 10 -15 minutes so we never had to wait around for very long A really great way to see the city
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.
Good tour, guide was knowledgeable. Large group but it didn't matter, you get an earpiece to hear the guide so you know whats going on the whole time. It was nice to be bused to the locations instead of walking.
Very informative and knowledgeable tour. Amazing detail on the archecture.. Tour guide highlighted how Gaudi was a genius on detail. Tour guide knowledge on detail on Sagrada was impressive. Highly recommended
