What to see and do
The Casa Batlló is a window into the Barcelona of the early twentieth century — come and discover it. With your ticket you’ll get to see…
The Noble Floor
The noble floor was the living space of the Batllò family up until they left in the 1950’s.
Spanning over 700 square meters, It is a marvel of architecture and design, featuring stained glass windows that span the entire façade, carved ceilings, and custom-made Art Nouveau decorations and furniture.
Gaudí was inspired by the legend of Saint George when designing the Casa Battló’s roof.
Its curved, multi-colored tiled form is said to represent the spine and the scales of a dragon’s back, and the protruding tower is meant to be the spear with which Saint George slew it.
Before the renovation, the loft was a service area for the building’s residents. Gaudí added 60 white catenary arches to its hallways, resembling the rib cage of an animal. Some say they are the ribs of the Dragon on the rooftop.
Did you know: (Three interesting facts!)
- Did you know that Gaudí didn’t build the Casa Batlló? It was built in 1877 and it looked like a regular apartment building until Gaudí renovated it in 1904.
- The building well’s blue, tiled walls are darker in color at the top and lighter at the bottom to create an even distribution of the light that filters through the skylight.
- Its nickname is the House of Bones, owing to the many elements that appear so: the banister of the main staircase looks like a spine, the arches in the loft appear like ribs, and the ironwork on the front balconies appear like skulls.
