La Casa Batlló, is another of the impressive buildings in Barcelona, designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí, also located on the Paseo de Gracia (street).
It is another building boasting the characteristics of Gaudí modernism, built for Josep Batlló, a wealthy aristocrat, and the house where the Batlló family lived on the two lower floors.
Undoubtedly, the facade is the main curiosity of the Casa Battló, due to its designs and shapes which are all characteristics of modernism by Gaudí. The shapes remind you of skulls and cross-bones inspired by marine life. Have you noticed that all the windows are different?
We recommend a visit to the interior of the Casa, to discover the details, both large and small details that Gaudí incorporated: for example, the size of the windows. Each window is different so that the light uniformly penetrates into each room. Audio guides are available to provide you information about each one of the rooms.
