What You Can Expect
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.
Skip the line definitely the way to go. The audio device was fantastic.Thoroughly enjoyed it. :
I loved this tour of Gaudi's beautiful Casa Batllo! The Audio/Video equipment supplied to each visitor on the tour was really cool. You could pan it around each room to see how the room looked with its original furnishings...very fun and creative!
Fabulous, unique, breathtaking house. Loved the audio-visual facility - showing what it would have appeared like back in the day.
We enjoyed seeing Casa Batllo very much, and the inter-active audio/visual was fun also. It was great to see how each room looked while the Batllo family was living there. There was a large line when we arrived and we were very glad we had booked this tour to skip the lines.
Worth it to pay a few extra euros to skip the line. The audio tour is a must...it allows you to visit each room at your own pace.
What a house, the architecture is amazing. Love the way it all flows. Your missing alot if you just look from the outside - so mush inside to see also.
This tour was the highlight of our Barcelona stay. We have been to many of the Gaudi buildings but this was the most impressive. It is a private home that shows the best of the Art Nouveau movement in Spain. There was an excellent audio presentation that was included with the admission. Advance tickets are a must. There was a huge line waiting to get in.
Interesting visit, good audiotour, skip the line is well enforced. They keep number of visitors at acceptable level for having a good view of the premises.
Casa Battlo is incredible. Don't miss it! We visited late in the afternoon after sleeping off some jet lag. The Skip-The-Line ticket and audio tour gave us the flexibility to work the tour into our schedule at our own pace. Highly recommend!
