What You Can Expect
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.
The house is beautiful and it's a must-see in Barcelona. The audio guide is a little hyperbolic at times, but it is still definitely worth it. The video guide did not seem as good of a choice.
We had no problems claiming our ticket, and were able to skip the line of people *buying* tickets. But, know that this is not the same as the more expensive line-skipping ticket you can get directly from the house, which allows you to skip the *entry* line as well. Nevertheless, we were in peak tourist season, and the line wasn't that long anyway.
No one should skip Gaudi's Casa Batllo tour. Getting the tickets in advance was easy and saved us a long, long line.
