Great family experience at Casa Batllo!

As an architect myself, I was amazed by Casa Batllo's innovative design. Listening to an audio guide was definitely a bonus, helping me better understand the details I was looking at and their deeper meaning. My wife's favorite was the balcony photo stop, and my daughter loved the Gaudi Cube room! Overall, it was great for the whole family!

Pam

Loved the audio and tablet!

I purchased the all-inclusive ticket and it was definitely worth it! Visiting all the rooms of Casa Batllo and walking with the virtual reality description on a tablet gave me a new level of understanding! The ticket price was not much different, so I would suggest you go with fast entry and a complete visit. By the way, off-season traveling is the best, keep that in mind when booking!

DESCRIPTION

Casa Batllo Ticket

Enter the world of imagination, art, and sustainable design at Casa Batllo.

CONSTRUCTION PROCESS

The building was commissioned by the textile industrialist Josep Batllo and conducted in 1877 by Emilio Sala Cortes. Back in 1904, this classic-style building was given up for renovation. This mission was passed on to Gaudi, who had full creative freedom to reimagine the structure in his unique style. Completed in 1906, Casa Batllo stands out with its vivid, organic-like facade, interior, and rooftop.

RESTORATION AND OPENING

For many years, the building went unnoticed and neglected, which led to its gradual deterioration. However, in 1994., the shift in the estate's purpose marked the beginning of a restoration process that took years to complete. Casa Batllo was opened to the public as a museum in 2002 and finally gained significant recognition by UNESCO in 2005.

INSPIRED BY SAINT GEORGE

Often referred to as the "House of the Dragon" or "House of Bones," it represents the legend of Saint George, Catalonia's patron saint. The roof is shaped like the back of a dragon, and a turret and cross symbolize the sword of Saint George, which, according to the legend, was plunged into the dragon's back.

Interesting Facts

NO STRAIGHT LINES

Gaudi's philosophy is that nature doesn't use straight lines, and that's why Casa Batllo has almost none. Both the exterior and interior of the building are characterized by curved walls and flowing forms.

STUDENT WHO SURPASSED THE MASTER

Emilio Sala Cortés designed the building in 1877, but this information is special because Gaudi was once his student! It is fascinating to see how the building has changed from a classic structure to a new symbol of modernism.

REMARKABLE VENUE AWARDS 2021

Thanks to its newly added '10D Experience,' Casa Batllo was recognized as the best monument in the world at the Remarkable Venue Awards 2021, beating the Tower of London, the Duomo of Milan, and the Empire State Building.

164,000 METERS OF ALUMINUM CHAINS

Following the latest Casa Batllo renovation, Japanese architect Kengo Kuma created a unique staircase that spans over 2000 square meters.

BALCONY PHOTO

Did you know you can take photos on one of Casa Batllo's balconies? This option comes with an additional fee payable on the spot. Don't miss it!

Explore the interior of Casa Batllo

Inside Casa Batllo, you can explore a world of exquisite artwork and architecture across several floors, each detailed with Gaudi's touch:

The Entrance Hall: Once you enter the building, you will first see Batllo's family's private hall. It is designed in a unique style that is mostly linked to the world of Jules Verne with its underwater symbolism.

The Noble Floor: The Noble Floor was the residence of the Batllo family and served as the main suite in the building. You'll see a mushroom-shaped fireplace in Mr Batllo’s study room and a lively Paseo de Gracia from the living room windows. Don't miss the small oasis in the back courtyard. This peaceful retreat is decorated with interesting tiles and flower pots, making it a perfect photo spot.

The Loft: This is the simplest part of the house, originally used as a service area. Simple white walls and arches contrast with the rest of the building. Crack open one of the doors and see how, back in that time, servants ironed clothes.

The Roof Terrace: This beautifully decorated roof gives you a close view of the so-called "dragon back" and the magnificent views over Barcelona. This colorful oasis is often used for open concerts and shows.

Private residence: Pick the all-inclusive ticket option and enter the Batllo family private rooms. These rooms will take you back to the beginning of the 20th century with the modernist furniture design.
