Casa Battló pops up unexpectedly as you wander along Barcelona’s stylish Passeig de Gracia.
Its curved roof, organic structure and colourful facade, which was inspired by a lake of water lilies, are enough to make you stop in your tracks. But don’t just stop and stare, this Barcelona landmark offers so much more!
Head inside to discover a treasure chest of beautiful, modernist architecture and sculpture.
You will receive an audio-guide and map upon arrival. These handy tools will guide you around the 5 principal areas of Casa Battló, filling you in on the history of the house and pointing out interesting features as you go.
Make your way through the house to the rooftop, where you can catch attractive views of Barcelona’s skyline through the curved, multicoloured chimney pots.
Our recommendation is to visit at off-peak times (early evening), so that you can catch the last of daylight and discover Casa Battló without the crowds. Make sure you stroll by at night to see Casa Battló lit up and shimmering.
Your Guide to: The History
Casa Battló is easily identified as one of Antoní Gaudí’s iconic architectural works that have become the signature of Barcelona’s landscape.
Casa Battló was originally the home of Josep Battló and his family. Josep bought the building, which was a dull, unremarkable structure, in 1900. He commissioned Antoni Gaudí to transform it to its current style between 1904 and 1906.
Combine Casa Battló with:
- Shopping and coffee in stylish Passeig de Gracia
- A leisurely stroll along Las Ramblas and a visit to La Pedrera
- La Pedrera, Parc Güell and Sagrada Familia for the ultimate Gaudí experience!
