Casa Batlló (Catalan pronunciation: [ˈkazə βəˈʎːo]) is a building in the center of Barcelona. It was designed by Antoni Gaudí, and is considered one of his masterpieces. A remodel of a previously built house, it was redesigned in 1904 by Gaudí and has been refurbished several times after that. Gaudí's assistants Domènec Sugrañes i Gras, Josep Canaleta and Joan Rubió also contributed to the renovation project.

This one of the most astonishing pieces of architecture I've ever encountered! The only straight lines or flat surfaces are the floors! The incorporation of shapes, colors, and themes inspired directly from nature are soothing. Gaudi used the concepts of ergonomics and energy efficiency long before such things existed. Seeing examples of his work is a must if you visit Barcelona!
Absolutely stunning! A unique, playful and beautiful work of art. Gaudis work evokes strong feelings that can not properly be described. Definitely worth seeing. We also came back here one night as there was a projected light show on the building. It was insanely busy but a lovely experience! Very well done!
First stop in Barcelona. We had the basic ticket which was sufficient enough to get the idea of what it was about. You’re able to tour the rooms at your leisure. The architecture is amazing and inspiring. Attended with my grandma who needs a little help with stairs and accessibility. There is an elevator that you can take and stop at each floor, explore and then hop back on and keep going up. The best part was the top where the view was breathtaking.
Amazing, mind-blowing, full immersion of Gaudi. The colors, the themes, and the creativity here blend perfectly to create a fantastic "under water" experience. They also have an augmented reality device with audio guide which was a really cool addition and included with admission. Buy tickets ahead online and save a couple bucks!
Especially encourage you to come and enjoy in the evening. It is possible to enter with a tour but tickets should be purchased in advance. There is a terrace to enjoy the view from above / within. It is conveniently located next to a subway line and a line of tourists who similarly admire fine Catalan modernism.
Although price is expensive the visit is a must do in Barcelona! It was a beautiful experience and one of the highlights of our trip! There’s an audio device that helps you understand the complexity of his artwork and its hidden secrets. Get your phone on the pocket and take a minute to look around and appreciate this beauty!
This is one of the most beautiful buildings I have ever seen. Inside and out, it is a masterpiece of architecture and art. And remarkably, it also feels comfortable and inviting. I would love living here, which is often not the case for "statement" buildings. I need to come back and see this again someday; there's so much beauty that I'm sure I missed plenty of it this time.
It is a good place to visit. Architecture is interesting more of a sea feel. There is ocean like music in the background. They give you headphones and a iPhone looking thing. It is used like a virtual experience bringing you back to the past. The narration is clear and insightful.i love the use of tiles and layers. Only bad thing is 1 way in same way out.
Beautiful building Gaudi was commissioned for some rich couple back in the day. The building looks amazing inside and well thought of. Like all the small things has ergonomic feel that feels AMAZING in your hands, like the little knobs, the banister door handles and the chairs they got ever so perfectly into the palms of your hands. Definite worth the visit.
A rather astonishing yet remarkable architectural marvel that is extremely artistic with dragon or bony like features but with calming aqua colours on the wall. I was completely fascinated by the style and thought process that went into creating it. It's truly an iconic masterpiece that gives Barcelona an edge over most European cities. However, the entry fee is ridiculously high, which is quite unfair as it denies many tourists an opportunity to tour the house and see more.
It's clearly a beautiful place but the high entrance price and the constant sales pitch to go to the shop really grate. In my opinion, UNESCO World Heritage sites simply shouldn't be allowed to act like this as one of the conditions of their admittance. So, it's worth the visit for the grandeur of the architecture, not so much the predatory behavior.
As awe inspiring as I had hoped. Individual tile shapes and glazes make up this masterpiece, and all its sinuous lines beg to be caressed. Every door and carved panel, every knob, every hand rail, each tile... Gaudi was a visionary genius and the craftsmen who brought his ideas to life were so talented! What an exquisite jewel!!
I'd give this place 5 stars if not for the pricey entrance. 25 euros for a small museum compared to laaaaarger museums is pretty stiff. Inside is a wonderful experience that gives you Alice in wonderland sensation. The augmented reality though incredibly fun could use some some improvement. Nonetheless it was a truly fun experience that I'm very glad we did!
The place deserves six stars. It's a marvel of architecture and design; a truly unique landmark worth seeing with your own eyes. I was really disappointed with the amount of visitors packed in small places and the long-winded audio guide (which serves more as a way of setting the pace for the groups than an informative complement). The augmented reality application doesn't work as well as one could wish, and it adds too little to the experience to be deemed worth the hassle of carrying around the headphones + mobile bundle. The visit shouldn't take you more than 60-90 minutes. The shop is pricey, and the cheapest you could get there are postcards at 1.5€ a pop. Avoid it if you don't have time. The windows are a good spot to take pictures of the facade. Speaking of pictures, there's one point where they will offer you to take a picture, and then try to sell it to you later (spoiler: it's very expensive). They wouldn't even let you download it from the website. All in all, it's a beautiful place but not worth even half the ~24€ entrance fee.
A very pricey ticket, but worth the visit. The architecture of this Gaudi masterpiece takes your breath away, his style is really one of a kind, nothing can be compared with it. Even walking past this building and looking at the intricacies of its facade gives you a huge delight. Highly recommended!
One of the most interesting and famous Gaudi creations. Truly colourful, unique architectural techniques and all this in that era, too good for anyone to miss. Must see, highly recommended. It's advantageous to take the audio guide along for a better understanding of the attraction. Entry fee applicable. Credit cards accepted. Better to book in advance to beat the queues.
Amazing house, both inside and out. Well worth buying tickets online prior to going. Will need to get in line to collect and then rejoin a second queue to get in once you've collected (so if there is more than one of you, get the rest of the group to join the queue to get in whilst one collects or buys the tickets). Comes with audio guide that when you move around there are animations that add to the experience. Takes approx 1.5-2 hours to go through. It is the epitome of whimsy.
Love this place. I already have been there 2 time but cannot get enough of this extraordinary art deco building from my favourite artist of this period Antonio Gaudi, a genius ahead of the times with a sharp view on brilliance of nature and its greatness of solutions in construction. His design is timeless his buildings too. Dive into his world. It's so worth it and enjoy life!
Such an amazing place. I hadn’t been here for years because I didn’t want to waste my time. But when I went I enjoyed it and do not regret it at all! It’s worth it. The guided tour on the mobile phone is very modern and innovative way of going through the museum!
Has to be one of the best museums i have ever been to. What imagination and style. The audio visual guide is brilliant, the architect and interior design is amazing and classic Gaudi, especially loved the wood features and practical elements. Staff were really friendly too. Went mid September & midweek at 6pm....no queues anywhere, which had the added bonus of limited time for wife in shop due to closing ;)
A wonderfully beautiful house that really inspires your imagination. The visit lasts about 1 hour but not a dull moment. It is usually rather crowded so should get here early to avoid the crowds and audio / mobile guide is a must for enhancing the experience. They also do very nice photos on one of the balconies, should always try this and decide whether to buy the photos later. Tickets should be bought online in advance to skip the long queue. We loved the house.
It is the objective i liked most in Barcelona. The interior is beautiful. I liked the doors, the knobs, the fact that you are able to touch them and see how perfectly made the door knobs are. It is a house meant to be touched. Also the guide which i think is included in the entry fee is absolutely lovely. You have a lot of great information and a sort of virtual reality to show some of the things as they were in the past.Loved it!
