Tips for visiting Casa Batlló

As one of Barcelona's top attractions, Casa Batlló is unsurprisingly also one of the city's busiest, so choosing the right time to visit is key. Generally speaking, the best time to visit Casa Batlló is either first thing in the morning – before the rush of the afternoon crowds gets into full swing – or in the evening, after the last admission. There are good arguments for each.

In the morning, the interior is flooded with sunlight that illuminates Gaudí's design in all its flamboyant glory. Choose an evening visit, however, and you'll be treated to a more atmospheric experience, as warm lighting casts shadows around the building, and the smaller last-admissions crowd makes for a quieter ambience that helps the history feel more alive. Also, seeing the sunset over Barcelona's rooftops is almost worth the price of entry alone. The only way to be sure, of course, is to visit twice!

Casa Batlló's architecture is the boldest and most flamboyant of Gaudí’s residential buildings. This stunning example of Catalan modernism is a testament to Gaudí's singular ability to create whimsical, otherworldly interior design that still manages to be elegant and timeless. From scaly dragon-inspired roof tiles to kaleidoscopic floral mosaics and doors that look like they open into Narnia, this colorful house is eye-popping at every turn and is one of Barcelona’s true must-sees.

With a wavy animalistic facade, brilliant colors and intricate, thought-provoking features everywhere you look, this is a true architectural wonder inspired by nature and the Art Nouveau movement. A fun feature added to the experience is an augmented reality video guide, which lets you see life as it was for Barcelona’s elite at the turn of the 20th century, accompanied by informative audio. The level of detail that Gaudí imbued in every square inch of this incredible building needs to be seen to be believed.

Depending on which type of Casa Batlló tickets you buy, your visit to Casa Batlló can take anywhere from one to three hours. There are different Casa Batlló tickets available, with some offering you a self-guided visit, in which you're free to explore at your leisure and spend as long as you wish marvelling at Gaudí's remarkable creation.

In theory, it's possible to see everything in Casa Batlló in one hour, but that's without stopping to really admire everything in detail. There are also guided tours and experiences which are more structured, typically lasting upwards of two to three hours, which will give you ample time to really appreciate the intricate detailing and master craftsmanship of every nook and cranny of this architectural triumph.

If you really want to impress the locals of Barcelona when you visit, try pronouncing Casa Batlló in Catalan: [ˈkazə βəˈʎːo]. In case you're not familiar with the international phonetic alphabet, it sounds a little bit like "Casa Bal-Yo." You'll also get away with pronouncing Casa Batlló like "Casa Batch-Yo", but if you say "Casa Battle-Oh" you might get some quizzical looks!

While some visitors are disappointed to find out that there isn't an actual fire-breathing dragon on the roof of Casa Batlló, most are still blown away by the magnificent ceramic tiled rooftop that resembles the scales of a giant mythical beast.

Catalonia shares its patron saint with England, St. George, who legend has it, tamed and/or slew a dragon some time in the 3rd century CE. There are consequently hundreds of dragon images all over Barcelona, and Gaudí had his hand in quite a few of them. Most notably, his El Drac lizard in Park Güell, and the Casa Batlló dragon roof.

The roof of a building was for Gaudí like the hat of a person: a unique distinguishing feature that set each of his creations apart, and gave them their own distinct personality. It's fair to say he took this idea and ran with it for the Casa Batlló roof! Your Casa Batlló tickets will grant you access to the rooftop, where you'll not only get a glorious view across Barcelona, but also get within touching distance of the Casa Batlló roof dragon.

About: Casa Batlló

Gaudí's masterpiece, Casa Batlló located in the heart of Barcelona, was built in 1877. In 1904, the wealthy Batlló family asked Gaudí to build another in its place. Instead, he decided to renovate the building and did so in his own inimitable style. With a wavy animalistic facade, brilliant colors, and thought-provoking whimsical features everywhere (check out the roof terrace), this is a Gaudí wonder.
