Ticket prices at the counter have an increase of 4€ on all online prices.



Feast Your Eyes on Casa Batll贸

There's so much to see at Casa Batll贸! From the whimsical fa莽ade that changes colour depending on your angle and light, to the mesmerising Noble Floor where the Batll贸 family used to live, to the mythical Rooftop with its chimneys that look like medieval knights. Built between 1904 and 1906, Casa Batll贸 is a remodel of a previously built house. Its design is a stunning display of Gaudi's unparalleled imagination, with marine inspirations, organic shapes, and vibrant colours.


 
The Genius of Gaudi

The building is popularly known as Casa dels ossos (House of Bones) due to its bone-like, organic structure. Situated in the Eixample district, it is part of a series of houses designed by eminent Modernista architects from Barcelona.

As you have seen at the start of the video, the ground floor is particularly striking with intricate tracery, irregular oval windows, and fluid stone sculptures. Straight lines are a rarity in its design, and a significant portion of the fa莽ade is adorned with a vibrant mosaic of shattered ceramic tiles. The roof, shaped like an arch, is often compared to the spine of a dragon or dinosaur. A popular interpretation of the building suggests that the round feature on the left, culminating in a turret and cross at the top, symbolizes the lance of Saint George (Catalonia's patron saint,) embedded in the back of the dragon.



Embracing the New at Casa Batll贸

While preserving its historic charm, Casa Batll贸 hasn't shied away from modern additions.

The augmented reality SmartGuide, for example, allows you to see how the Batll贸 family lived over a century ago. Plus, the exhibition 'Gaudi's Universe' offers a deeper insight into the mind of the genius.

This video was shot before the latest multimedia updates including the restoration of the Sky Garden.

Casa Batll贸 is a place where art, history, and innovation intertwine.
