Casa Batllo in Barcelona, Spain

6.18.2015

Barcelona, Spain; Antoni Gaudi
On the first day in Barcelona, we went to La Boqueria Market first and then headed to the Casa Batllo.  I really did my research for all the sights in Barcelona and I kept reading mixed reviews on if it was really worth it to pay to go inside the Casa Batllo, but being the artist and art history nerd that I am, I needed to see it for myself... and I'm SO glad I did.  I loved every minute of it and love love Antoni Gaudi's work and am in awe of everything that he does.

Starting at the entrance... here's the staircase to go upstairs.

The staircase which resembled a dragon/dinosaur's vertebrae or bones.  Also throughout the house the walls were painted and looked like reptile skin, I loved the subtle detail of it.

The entrance to the dining room from the study room.

I've always loved stained glass and mosaics so it's obvious why Gaudi's work is on the top of my list. I loved the organic shapes in this stained glass.

Here's a real photo of how many people were there, it seemed impossible to get a shot with no one in it!

The ceiling resembled a conk shell, it kinda had an ocean theme going with all the organic lines.

In the middle of the house was tiled with ombre blue tiles starting out really light and ending up in royal blues.  He also designed a huge skylight in the middle of the house so that each room had natural light... my dream!

In the backyard/porch he had mosaics, I loved them all and dream to have them in my future house one day!

Even the barbed wire was designed specifically for this house.

The top floor was pure white with the most beautiful arches.  I loved the feeling in this hallway.

And on the top of the roof there were more beautifully colored mosaics, and they said that as the sun and light changed so did the colors of the tiles.  We were there on a rainy overcast day and they were still so vibrant and beautiful, I can only imagine what it looked like with a sunset.

I took so many more photos but just posted up a few to get a feel for the house.

The final verdict for me was that the Casa Batllo tour was very worth it and the audio tour is definitely needed, I really got a better understanding for what Gaudi was planning and what his intentions were for this design.

In my opinion I would much rather visit here than Park Guell (which was a MAJOR disappointment in my eyes) but that post will come soon!
