casa batllo is one of the many building antonio gaudi left behind in his home city of barcelona. it’s beautiful inside and out and a treasure of original solutions.
you can visit the house 365 days a year for the full price of 21.5 euro. it has a super central location, on passeig de gracia.
i found the price a bit steep but it was my fourth time in barcelona. so i thought it was time.
also known as casa dels ossos (the house of bones), the place is full of gaudi’s signature organic-inspired details. i liked those a lot and i took the time to observe them. but i loved the blue-tiled atrium the best! there’s nothing like it, right?
the building is stunning and it photographs beautifully. it’s full of interesting details so take your time discovering them all.
almost the entire place is available for visiting, except for a few rooms reserved for offices. my recommended route would be for you to take the elevator all the way up, climb a few stairs to the rooftop and then enjoy the floors one by one while climbing down.
i like the facade as well. i took a few pictures after i went out. but the best one is the one i took when i passed by again, in the late afternoon. i don’t know if you can tell, but the balconies look like skulls!
i enjoyed the casa batllo and i would recommend that you visit it the next time you’re in town!
