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

Avoid the long lines as you visit Casa Batlló, an incredible single-family home designed by Barcelona architect Antoni Gaudí, with this skip-the-line admission. Anyone interested in architecture or the history of Barcelona is sure to delight in this exploration of one of Gaudí’s most famous creations.

Start your visit any time during the home’s opening hours, which are from 9am to 8pm, skipping the entry line on your way in. As you arrive you’ll also receive an included audio guide and a map, which will help you navigate the home’s unique features, laid out across five distinct sections.

Explore the Noble Floor, where the Batlló family that commissioned the home once lived. Josep Batlló, the entrepreneur who ordered its construction, wanted a residence unlike any that had come before, and partnered with Gaudí on a project that far-exceeded his wildest expectations.

Stop by the loft, which acted as the family’s storage area and laundry room, and then continue to the roof terrace, where you can admire the eye-popping chimneys and the building’s famous “Dragon’s Back.” This unique element is said to be modeled on the mythical beast slain by Saint George. Head back down the communal staircase, taking time to investigate the translucent windows, intricate banister and beautiful door handles. These home accents serve as further proof of Gaudí’s incredible attention to detail.

Finish your home visit in the grand entrance hall, known for its wooden staircase shaped like the spine of a magical beast. Up above you’ll also notice the room’s tortoise shell-shaped skylights, a design element that’s led many to suggest the room resembles an underground cavern.

After you reach you last stop in the home, feel free to wander the many levels at your leisure, or finish your excursion here.

Best audiotour I have ever done with quality visuals on a tablet that follows you around. Learned more about Gaudi architecture in one hour than I expected. The house has a surprise for the senses around every corner. Buying tickets ahead of time allowed us to skip the line and get in immediately.

Incredible Tour with audio and what looked like a mobile phone which showed the rooms as they had been fitted out years ago. Beautiful lines in ceramics and in wood. Absolutely breath-taking. Worth every penny. Glad I pre-booked tickets as the queues were very long.
