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.

The tour was fantastic- we did not know what to expect but Wow! We were amazed at the wonderful architecture, sculpting and mosaic work that makes this house such a treasure. We used online skip- the-line, what a good job, the queue went right around the corner,; not what you need on a very hot day!

Love Gaudi -- how could you not ?
So interesting -- it was a bit crowded but the skip the line ticket made it easier.

This is a must see in Barcelona. The guided audio tour was wonderful. I liked it almost as much as La Segrada Familia.

Well worth it to buy tickets from Viator online, as you don't have to select an entry time, and you get skip the line access for free. Casa Batllo is a stunning example of the genius of Gaudi and the audio/VR guide is a valuable addition. Go early in the day to avoid the crowds, although it gets busy quickly. The Gaudi architecture and design is fantastic, and always there is function to the form. Recommended.

The house is stunning- a must see in Barcelona. The video guide provided a unique addition to the tour by allowing the viewer to see each room as it previously appeared.
You do have to exchange the voucher for a ticket at the ticket window but this was not a problem as it was not busy when we arrived.

This is a beautiful place! I loved that it was an audio tour and we could take our time and stop as long as we wanted in some rooms! For people who cannot do the stairs there was an elevator and a great gift shop!

Don't miss this!! Audio is a must to really appreciate Gaudi's fantastic building. Go on a weekday when it's not as crowded.

It was great decision to book tickets in advance via Viator and so thrilled to be treated as special assistance and directly enter into the house by skipping the line.

On entry, we were given a pair of headphones and the audio/video tour device As we enter each area of the tour, the walls display a number and as we press the corresponding number on our device,it plays the audio. Just hold up the device as if taking a picture and you'll see a virtual tour of Casa Batllo from back in the day...loved the ideas Gaudis had and implemented those days.

A must do..thoroughly enjoyed it.

So glad we used Viator's skip the line tour! We got to bypass the long line and go right in with no waiting. The house is very impressive and the audio was informative although several of us had trouble with the audio freezing up. Don't miss it! Gaudi's style is unlike any other.
