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.

    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.

    It's clearly a beautiful place but the high entrance price and the constant sales pitch to go to the shop really grate. In my opinion, UNESCO World Heritage sites simply shouldn't be allowed to act like this as one of the conditions of their admittance. So, it's worth the visit for the grandeur of the architecture, not so much the predatory behavior.

    I'd give this place 5 stars if not for the pricey entrance. 25 euros for a small museum compared to laaaaarger museums is pretty stiff. Inside is a wonderful experience that gives you Alice in wonderland sensation. The augmented reality though incredibly fun could use some some improvement. Nonetheless it was a truly fun experience that I'm very glad we did!

    The place deserves six stars. It's a marvel of architecture and design; a truly unique landmark worth seeing with your own eyes. I was really disappointed with the amount of visitors packed in small places and the long-winded audio guide (which serves more as a way of setting the pace for the groups than an informative complement). The augmented reality application doesn't work as well as one could wish, and it adds too little to the experience to be deemed worth the hassle of carrying around the headphones + mobile bundle. The visit shouldn't take you more than 60-90 minutes. The shop is pricey, and the cheapest you could get there are postcards at 1.5€ a pop. Avoid it if you don't have time. The windows are a good spot to take pictures of the facade. Speaking of pictures, there's one point where they will offer you to take a picture, and then try to sell it to you later (spoiler: it's very expensive). They wouldn't even let you download it from the website. All in all, it's a beautiful place but not worth even half the ~24€ entrance fee.

    Amazing house, both inside and out. Well worth buying tickets online prior to going. Will need to get in line to collect and then rejoin a second queue to get in once you've collected (so if there is more than one of you, get the rest of the group to join the queue to get in whilst one collects or buys the tickets). Comes with audio guide that when you move around there are animations that add to the experience. Takes approx 1.5-2 hours to go through. It is the epitome of whimsy.

    Love this place. I already have been there 2 time but cannot get enough of this extraordinary art deco building from my favourite artist of this period Antonio Gaudi, a genius ahead of the times with a sharp view on brilliance of nature and its greatness of solutions in construction. His design is timeless his buildings too. Dive into his world. It's so worth it and enjoy life!

    It is the objective i liked most in Barcelona. The interior is beautiful. I liked the doors, the knobs, the fact that you are able to tough them and see how perfectly made the door knobs are. It is a house meant to be touched. Also the guide which i think is included in the entry fee is absolutely lovely. You have a lot of great information and a sort of virtual reality to show some of the things as they were in the past.Loved it!

    Such a beautiful and special architecture. Even if you don't go inside, still worth a trip here to admire the outside of the building to see this special mansion. The entrance fee is quite pricey. You definitely will get the wow factor... Recommended

    It's quite pricey. Some might think it's worth it, while others won't. I liked the explanations on the augmented mobile app we got along with the audio guide, but it didn't work properly (some of the AR stuff didn't show up). The house itself is really interesting and you could finish it quickly if you don't follow the audio guide.

    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
