What You Can Expect

Skip the Line: Gaudi's Casa Batlló Ticket with Audio Tour

Visit one of Gaudi masterpieces with this Skip the Line: Gaudi Casa Batllo tour

Skip past the lines outside Gaudi’s Casa Batlló in Barcelona with your priority-access ticket, and head inside to explore this fascinating museum at your leisure. An audio guide and map are both included with your entrance ticket, so put your headphones on and then set off to explore.

The museum is laid out into five distinct areas, and your audio commentary will guide you around each one, highlighting the points of interest that lie in every nook and cranny. Take in the Noble Floor, where the Batlló family once lived, and learn about their lives in Barcelona. A forward-thinking entrepreneur, Josep Batlló wanted a new family home that was totally different to anything else in the city; he commissioned Gaudi to create a daring design, and let’s just say, the outcome was far from disappointing!

Visit the loft, which acted as the family’s vast store cupboard and laundry room, and step out onto the roof terrace to see Gaudi’s mythical-looking chimneys and the famous ‘Dragon’s Back’ – a model that depicts the fabled dragon that was said to have been slain by St George. Wander down the communal staircase, admiring the translucent windows and ergonomic design of the banisters, skylights and even door handles – all of which beautifully illustrate Gaudi’s meticulous attention to detail.

Your audio tour finishes inside the magnificent entrance hall, popular for its grand wooden staircase that was built to look like the spine of a giant beast. Gaze upward to marvel at the skylights shaped like tortoise shells, and envisage yourself in an underground cave; many believe this to be Gaudi’s inspiration for the room.

After your tour finishes, you can stay longer in Casa Batlló, admiring the visual treats at your own pace.

Very nice tour. Beautiful architecture and design. The Skip the Line ticket saves one line, but it is not really 'skip the line' as you would think. It is really a Skip One Line, and there should be better signage to indicate that people with prepaid vouchers should stand in the other line that queues for admission.

We have been visiting Barcelona for 10 years and the queues for Casa Batllo have deterred us. Decided to try the Skip the line audio tour and it was fantastic, you really do skip the line and avoid the queues. The building is amazing - well worth the wait.

I haven't stopped talking about this tour since my return home. Skip the line is the only way to do this.

This was a great trip. We all grandparents parents and teenager enjoyed this. it takes about 2 hours and you learn so much about the building and about Gaudi. We will do it again. Worth every penny.

Excellent! A must in Barcelona.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

This was absolutely worth seeing! The Casa Batllo itself is not to be missed. But purchasing the Skip the Line tickets from Viator saved us lots of time AND money, as these were less expensive than purchasing the fast pass tickets from Casa Batllo itself. So easy and not as complicated as others have made it sound. Just get into the line that says Vouchers and the cashier will trade out your print outs for admission tickets right away, saving you the bother of waiting to buy the tickets there.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Certainly worth pre ordering tickets prior to visit. Walked straight in with no delay. Fantastic visit. Interactive audio/ visual guide enhances the experience. A must see when in Barcelona. A great way to understand the brilliance of Gaudi whose presence is felt throughout Barcelona.
