|About these ratings|
The details highlighted in Casa Batlló show Antoni Gaudí at his best. Of all the Gaudí apartments, this is probably the most recognized. Sitting down the street from Casa Milà, Casa Batlló is known for its skeletal windows and terraces. The oddly shaped façade is thought to depict the legend of St. George slaying the dragon — the roof in particular depicts the dragon's scaly back. After you've taken the time to absorb the monstrous amount of detail used on the outside of the building, stop inside to tour the Noble Floor — once home to the Batlló family — before you head to the roof to check out Gaudí's spiny chimneys.
While admission to the Casa Batlló is slightly more expensive than at other Gaudí sites like the Casa Milà, recent visitors agree that it's worth it. As one traveler told TripAdvisor, "This house designed by Gaudi is a must-see in Barcelona. Take the free audio guide, it will give you much more information about what to look for in the house. I was amazed at all the fine details. If you like art and architecture be sure to visit." You can visit Casa Batlló every day from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., admission costs €20.35 EUR (or about $27 USD) and an audio guide is included. For more information, check out Casa Batlló's website.
