Casa Batlló is a renowned building located in the center of Barcelona and is one of Antoni Gaudí’s masterpieces. A remodel of a previously built house, it was redesigned in 1904 and has been refurbished several times after that. The whole building has organic quality, which ensures the uniqueness of it. Like everything Gaudí designed, it is in the frames of Modernisme or Art Nouveau in the broadest sense. The ground floor has unusual tracery, irregular oval windows and flowing sculpted stone work. There are few straight lines, and much of the façade is decorated with a colorful mosaic made of broken ceramic tiles. The roof is arched and is similar to the back of a dragon or dinosaur. A common theory about the building is that the rounded feature to the left of centre represents the lance of Saint George, which has been plunged into the back of the dragon.

    So wanted to give this a better review but based on the ticket price, this visit wasn't value for money. At 57€ for two tickets is quite a price. We only discovered you could book online for a small discount after we paid. It was odd to think that we paid so much money for an attraction that makes money from the Gaudi name - a man that lived a very frugal life. I completely understand that this attraction gets no funding but the sheer volume of people moving through, it must still generate a significant income.

    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!

    This was an excellent stop and worth every minute. The attention to detail and the craftmanship within the house is exquisite. The wood work alone is amazing to few, touch and take in. The flow and design of the house is something I doubt you will see anything else as functional anywhere else in the world. The tile works wall, everything was amazing.

    Amazing location but very busy, we had pre-booked tickets but still had to que for over 40 minutes. Eventually they asked us to jump the end of the question as we had young children and the sun was hot. Rooms full of people, but still a real pleasure to see. Good gift shop near the top. Small toilets near the top floor. Lots of stairs, one lift available but only for those in real need. Interactive guide interesting. No cafe, but there is a small machine selling bottles of water for €2 on the top floor, also some very expensive ice cream in the rear courtyard.

    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.

    Absolutely stunning! A unique, playful and beautiful work of art. Gaudis work evokes strong feelings that can not properly be described. Definitely worth seeing. We also came back here one night as there was a projected light show on the building. It was insanely busy but a lovely experience! Very well done!

    This one of the most astonishing pieces of architecture I've ever encountered! The only straight lines or flat surfaces are the floors! The incorporation of shapes, colors, and themes inspired directly from nature are soothing. Gaudi used the concepts of ergonomics and energy efficiency long before such things existed. Seeing examples of his work is a must if you visit Barcelona!

    Amazingly beautiful house and a great touring experience. Free headsets with a great audio tour and a device you can use and move around the room to see how it was originally. Only wish I could rent out a room in the house to stay!

    First stop in Barcelona. We had the basic ticket which was sufficient enough to get the idea of what it was about. You’re able to tour the rooms at your leisure. The architecture is amazing and inspiring. Attended with my grandma who needs a little help with stairs and accessibility. There is an elevator that you can take and stop at each floor, explore and then hop back on and keep going up. The best part was the top where the view was breathtaking.

    It is a good place to visit. Architecture is interesting more of a sea feel. There is ocean like music in the background. They give you headphones and a iPhone looking thing. It is used like a virtual experience bringing you back to the past. The narration is clear and insightful.i love the use of tiles and layers. Only bad thing is 1 way in same way out.

    A must if you’re visiting Barcelona. The multimedia guide has great explanations. The Augmented Reality is not great, also not needed, audio is fine. Watch the house not the guide
