Top sights in Barcelona
Antoni Gaudí saw nature as his muse and used its patterns and shapes to create architectural masterpieces. Casa Batlló is one example that reflects his ingenious imagination, and it should top your list when visiting Barcelona.
In 1904, the Batlló family asked Gaudí to turn their building into an unrivaled showpiece and allowed him free rein to bring his whims of creativity to life. He clearly succeeded.
Gaudí's technqiue, with the use of stone, glass, color, and abstract shapes on Casa Batlló's undulating facade and in its interior, illustrates his brilliance of Catalan Modernism.
It's where the Batlló family lived, and it exudes sheer elegance. The mushroom-shaped alcove, with benches to sit by a fire, is an example of Gaudí's gifted mind at work.
The use of warm tones and wood creates a harmonious flow throughout. The building's shaft, lined with cool shades of exquisite, blue tiles, fills Casa Batlló with natural light.
Eccentric chimneys rise behind what appears to be the contour of a dragon's back, which crowns the roof. The sequence of colored tiles enhances the effect of a scaly surface.

When you purchase a ticket online, you'll also receive a video guide, which allows you to see what some of the rooms would have virtually looked like when furnished.

What people are saying about Casa Batlló
We saw Sagrada Familia from the outside on our first visit to Barcelona, so we wan to go inside of this monumental church as well as other famous Gaudi buildings and this tour did not disappoint. Our guide for the Sagrada Familia tour was well versed in its history and spoke clearly and kept our fairly large group together and on schedule (not an easy task). Our second guide for the tour of Park Guill and other Gaudi Buildings was also was very well versed in the subject and spoke excellent English, but because that part of the tour was given in both English and Spanish, it was a bit more confusing at times to understand. After touring Park Guill, the last part of the tour involves walking on the outside of two of Gaudi's downtown buildings. While that is interesting, if you don't take the extra tour of the inside of at least one of the buildings (we did), the time and energy spent to see the outside may not be worth the effort. Be advised, there is a LOT of walking on this tour!
Your staff was very friendly, informative and clear in giving instructions. They took great care in making sure everyone understood where they needed to be when. Kept on warning us about safety issues that was a great help. As a tourist you can easily get caught up in the moment and not pay attention to those around you. Bus was very clean and comfortable. Will use your services again soon and recommend it to those I know. Thank you for a great tour!
Casa Battlo wasn't the only ticket we booked. It happens too often that after having booked and paid for a ticket one gets a message the trip is not available on the date that was booked, it is cancelled completely or the time that the voucher shows is not what you booked. Also we had a lot of trouble showing the voucher on the phone since downloading wouldn't work at the destination chosen. I doubt if I would book with you again.
In general, I liked Caso Batlló. Gaudi's genius knowledge and creativity gave marvelous results that bewilder visitors from all around the world. It's absolutely astonishing - the play of light and shadow, the glasswork, and the texture of the materials used. The audio guide was really useful and helped to understand the creation. The only irritating factor was the number of tourists:)
Our guide Alma was super knowledgeable and all around wonderful. Great expansive tour that lets you get more context around Gaudi’s masterpieces - including Sagrada Família tower climb. Really well orchestrated and executed tour from beginning to end. Would recommend.
