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

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

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.

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

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.

Amazing and insightful just like our Tour guide Zoë!

We had a brilliant experience and really enjoyed the tour. Our Tour guide Zoë, an architect that studied at the same University as Gaudi offered us insight and a different perspective on the works, the skills, the genius that is and was Gaudi. Being a former student and appreciating the unique design and character was the key in being a successful tour guide. Highly recommended and would like to do it again in 9 years when the Sagrada Familia will be finished! Let's see!!!!

The best guided tour I have ever been on!

Arriving between Christmas and the New Year and without any preparation I was disappointed to find the the tickets to see Sagrada Familia were sold out until the Saturday which was the day we were coming home. I have used getyourguild before in Amsterdam so looked it up online and was delighted to find tickets available with a guide for the next day. The guide used audio equipment which was just brilliant and she was extremely knowledgeable, very pleased with the whole experience from booking to rendevous and the guided tour we would definately book again and would encourage others to book!

Easy to use, even when we didn't have the voucher printed befor

Easy to enter and worth the extra few bucks to skip the long line. The overall tour was really informative, screen devices were helpful in seeing the original layout of the home. Crowd was incredible, with patience especially in the staircase, all was great.

This was my 3rd trip to the site and I still find it enchanting.

This is my 3rdad trip to the site and I still find it enhanting. Highly recommended.
