Create an itinerary including Casa Batllo
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.

  • This is an interesting building but for what they charge you to visit a complete scam. Buy tour tickets in advance if you want to visit

  • We had an amazing experience here. The building is amazing and the audio guide is very detailed and interesting. We had a gold pass so we could change the time of visit and had access to some refreshments. The tour ended in an amazing display of modern video art that just lifted everything. The gift shop is also a must. Overall splendid visit
  • My favorite places in Barcelona! Buy tickets for early mornings and enjoy the experience with less tourists. Took me 2 hrs to visit all floors, plus a lot of pictures! On the roof there is a bar with music and relaxed atmosphere. Buy online tickets and escapes the queue. Enjoy!
