Located in the bustling city center and considered one of architect Antoni Gaudí’s signature works, Casa Batllo can perhaps best be described as a combination of Modernist and Art Nouveau architecture. Gaudí’s design goal seems to have been to avoid straight lines—completely. Much of the facade is decorated with mosaics made of broken ceramic tiles, ranging in shades from golden orange to greenish blue. The roof is arched and often described as resembling the back of a dragon or dinosaur, so it’s not surprising that most locals call the building "House of Bones." Originally built for a middle-class urban family, this is one of two Gaudí houses available for touring. Skip the lines by booking your tickets online.

Worth going inside for a tour with their very well done audio guide. As someone who enjoys architecture this building was a fun experience and an impressive demonstration. more »
Beautiful piece of art, architecture, and design. The interior is amazing and the audio guide provides a lot of interesting information and unique visual augmentation as well. This is a must see and worth every penny. Plan to spend about an hour.
It was good, but not amazing. After going would I go again...nope. would I recommend it, not 100% tip, book gold tickets. With silver and bronze the queues are still massive. I turned up booked gold for €2s more than silver and saved a 45 min wait easily
