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.
