One of Barcelona’s most fanciful works of architecture, the elaborate Casa Batlló was built by celebrated Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí between 1904 and 1906 and stands on the famous central avenue of Passeig de Gràcia. A masterpiece of modernist design, the building was commissioned by its namesake Josep Batlló and forms one of a number of innovative structures on the street, locally dubbed the 'Mançana de la Discordia' (‘apple of discord’).

The original 19th-century building was completely remodeled Gaudi with an elaborate Art Noveau façade that dramatically blends sculpted stonework, intricate tracery and glazed ceramic tiling into a surrealist work of art. Inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2005, the Casa Batlló has become one of the city’s most memorable tourist attractions and is often nicknamed the ‘House of Bones’, thanks to its contorted window frames and skeletal pillars.

The interiors, also remodeled by Gaudi, are equally mind-boggling, with rippled walls, exquisite tile work and sculpted fireplaces creating a fairytale feel. Now open to the public as a museum of art and architecture, the Casa Batlló pushes the boundaries of the imagination and provides a fascinating insight into the life and works of Gaudi, as well as featuring pieces by other artists and professionals of the period.
