The six-storey building, the Casa Batllo is just one in a series by the famous architect Antonio Gaudi. The house is considered to be Gaudi's masterpiece and was classified even as a World Heritage Site in 2005. The building is really something extraordinary. There are often small crowds on the street and look up the välmejslade, spotted facade, at any time during a day.
Casa Batllo is built of pale stone from the nearby mountain of Montjuďc and adorned as ivory, curved balconies. The house was built in 1904-1906 and includes housing, but has recently been opened up to the public. Now you can see how the original architecture continues inside the house.
During a visit you will have the opportunity to see the big entrance floor, attic and even the roof with its eye-catching chimneys. In large public areas there are furniture that Gaudí himself designed for the Batlló family when they lived in the house. Mr Batllo was so pleased with the result that he recommended his architect to the family Milá, which gave rise to the House La Pedrera or Casa Mila, three blocks away. There is no doubt Casa Batllo is the perfect destination for your Barcelona day tour.
