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.

No time on cue.

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.

I very much enjoyed this tour. I went around 9 am and there were not a lot of people. Having the pre-purchased ticket did speed my entrance. When I got inside I was asked what language for the audio portion. I thought the audio was done very well and added to my enjoyment of visiting Casa Batllo. The house was amazing and I definitely recommend a visit.

Amazing - so so interesting. This man was a genius. Through every door, round every corner was something quite jaw dropping. The Sagrada Cathedral was even more incredible. Advise anyone to have a short break in Barcelona.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

This was absolutely wonderful. We just wanted to stay and keep looking at things over and over again. The audio tour was excellent as the equipment became a live film to use as we went round. A very clever idea. We have not seen anything like that before
