Why You Shouldn't Miss Casa Batlló
Having acquired the status of a World Heritage site by UNESCO, this building has slowly become a legend of art and architecture as well as a benchmark of modernism. Casa Batllo is more than meets the eye - its architectural details perpetually interact with light, colour, and shapes from nature.
The blend of artistic technique with the evocation of magic and the sea makes it, unlike anything you’ve seen before! If you are intrigued by experimental art and bold moves in architectural design, you cannot leave without visiting this fascinating building.
After gaining entry into the iconic Casa Battlo with your tickets, you can collect your map of the structure as well as your smart guide so that you can begin exploring this celebrated example of Gaudi's distinct architectural style.
Casa Battlo may look like something out of an aquamarine dream but the building was initially built with the intention of being residential, hence it's prized place on Passeig de Gracia. Though Gaudi unleashed him imagination when Josep Battlo gave him full creative freedom to renovate this building, which can be seen in the Catalan's use of color and light especially in his design, it is a truly functional building, much more reminiscent of apartment buildings now than anything that existed a hundred years ago.
Your guide will help you navigate through the different parts of the building, be it the loft, and unusual and elegant space, considering that it used to contain laundry rooms, since the area is adorned with catenary arches, which makes the inside look like the ribcage of some magnificent beast, perhaps the dragon that adorns the roof of the building. You will also get to see the Noble floor, where the Battlo family resided in their day. It is comprised of a study, dining room, and a private entrance hall, all embellished in Gaudi's signature style, whimsical, yet deliberate.
You will also get to see the roof, which has the distinct shape of a dragon's spine, to represent the monster slain by St George, as well as chimney stacks that were built to prevent backdraughts. Your smart guide will also help you better admire the external architecture of Casa Battlo, like the exterior facade, made up of many different ornaments, like the tile on the roof to represent the shiny scales of a dragon or the lack of straight lines in the entire design of the space.
Even after the commentary on your guide runs out, feel free to stay back and explore on your own!
