All across the city of Barcelona you’ll come across captivating masterpieces designed by the hand of Antoni Gaudí. Casa Batllo is one of the most prominent, another of his works and one of two private homes that have been turned into museums. With its oval windows, slim columns and colourful mosaics, this modernist building is an icon of Gaudí’s signature style.
Built over a century ago for a prominent aristocratic family, the spot more recently became a UNESCO World Heritage Site and in 2002 was finally opened to the public after a lengthy restoration process. Situated in the Eixample neighbourhood which lies just to the north of the city centre, today it is a popular attraction. The interior of the building is still in its original state, exactly as it would have been when the Batllo family lived here. Notable features include built-in fireplaces, the arched ceilings and the stained glass.
Take a look at the Noble Floor where the family spent their leisure time. The illuminated inner courtyard leading to the stairwell, the loft and the roof terrace is just waiting to be explored.
The best way to see the façade in all its glory, with its surrealist design and ocean blue shade is to view it from the street. You’ll notice that there are no straight lines here in the building, another of Gaudí’s traditional signature features. Other interesting features include the roof, which resembles a dragon’s spine.
Due to its popularity, there are often long queues to get in to the house, so to avoid the queues, you may be better off buying your ticket online beforehand. Then you’ll be able to walk straight in. Ticket prices aren’t cheap, but students and senior citizens receive a discount on their ticket price and children under six don’t have to pay to get in.
As part of your ticket price, you’ll be given an hour-long audio guide to help you get the most out of your visit. There’s also a souvenir shop on site. The house opens every day of the year and can be reached by bus, metro and train.
