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.

We stayed at a hotel about a block away from Casa Batllo' and each time we passed by there was a l-o-n-g line of people waiting to take the tour. Buying your Skip the Line tickets saved us a lot of time that would have been spent standing in line. We also enjoyed the great audio-visual tour which showed us what the various rooms would have looked like when they were furnished and also included many whimsical images based on Gaudi's wonderful designs.

Perfect tour. The audio is very well done for this amazing house. Go early in the day when the house is not so crowded.

My second time here. A must for visitors to Barcalona. It's as astounding on the inside as the outside. Probably my favourite building in Barcelona.

We had some extra time and didn't know what to do with it. This was an unexpected treat!! We learned so much and found that if haven't visited something Gaudi houses, church, or Park Guell in Barcelona, then you haven't really understood this city. The audio tour was so informative and really well done. Of course, we skipped the line. The underground is directly across the street. And if you go down a couple of blocks, on the underground side heading straight away from the exit of subway, there is a great tapas bar, that if you hit during happy hour, you will be so happy to have done so....we each got a beer and two tapas...7 euros total!! Can't remember the name, but there is outside dining right in front. Also, at night, if you proceed from there to the end of the block, there is a beautiful fountain that lights up in changing colors. This was a very inexpensive thing to do that gave you so much for your time....a must see!

I loved this tour. Finally got to see the interior during this visit. The iPhones are a great tool to help visitors imagine what the interior looked like back then.

Loved this tour especially because you can go at your own pace and not multi language to deal with during the tour.

It was great getting the tickets in advance. Line ups weren't really an issue as we went early in the morning, but still we got to go to the front of the line and get in front of those who were buying tickets. The only thing is we had to wait until a tour group went in about 20 people and then we got caught behind the group. Wish the ticket taker had let the 2 of us in before the group. The audio headsets are great - give lots of detail and the house is amazing!
