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.

    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.

    Especially encourage you to come and enjoy in the evening. It is possible to enter with a tour but tickets should be purchased in advance. There is a terrace to enjoy the view from above / within. It is conveniently located next to a subway line and a line of tourists who similarly admire fine Catalan modernism.

    Although price is expensive the visit is a must do in Barcelona! It was a beautiful experience and one of the highlights of our trip! There’s an audio device that helps you understand the complexity of his artwork and its hidden secrets. Get your phone on the pocket and take a minute to look around and appreciate this beauty!

    This is one of the most beautiful buildings I have ever seen. Inside and out, it is a masterpiece of architecture and art. And remarkably, it also feels comfortable and inviting. I would love living here, which is often not the case for "statement" buildings. I need to come back and see this again someday; there's so much beauty that I'm sure I missed plenty of it this time.

    Really enjoy this house especially the first room and the stairwell. My first time to Barcelona and it's my first time hearing about Gaudi and I'm deeply impressed by his work...and on this house. The colours and the stained glass are amazing...moving up and down the stairwell really gives you an impression that you're moving in water. A must visit when in Barcelona

    Great experience. I enjoyed the audiovisual tour. It was really cool to use the 360 virtual tour. We spent about 2 hours going through the rooms and checking out Gaudi's work. Very interesting and entertaining. Loved it.

    Beautiful building Gaudi was commissioned for some rich couple back in the day. The building looks amazing inside and well thought of. Like all the small things has ergonomic feel that feels AMAZING in your hands, like the little knobs, the banister door handles and the chairs they got ever so perfectly into the palms of your hands. Definite worth the visit.

    A rather astonishing yet remarkable architectural marvel that is extremely artistic with dragon or bony like features but with calming aqua colours on the wall. I was completely fascinated by the style and thought process that went into creating it. It's truly an iconic masterpiece that gives Barcelona an edge over most European cities. However, the entry fee is ridiculously high, which is quite unfair as it denies many tourists an opportunity to tour the house and see more.

    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
