I want to tell you about a place that alone has been able to excite me more than anything in the Spanish city: Casa Batllò.
Even today, 4 years later, when I think back to that day of warm sunshine and the first time I came into contact with an architecture by Antoni Gaudi, I am moved.
Legend has it that centuries ago in Montblanc (Terragona) a fierce dragon was raging on the inhabitants of the city.
The latter desperate from the continuous destruction, appeased his anger, sacrificing one person a day and "giving it to him for a meal".
The time came to sacrifice the princess too, but the brave Saint George ran to his aid and pierced the dragon with his sword and an incredible rose garden was born from the blood that flowed.
Since that day, this popular legend is celebrated every year on April 23: the day of San Jordi.
Perfect time to visit the house as it is set up with thousands of red roses to represent the spilled blood.
The house is open every day of the year from 9 to 21 (last access at 20) at 43 in Paseo de Gracia.
The basic ticket costs 25 euros and includes an augmented reality audio guide. A monitor connected to your device will allow you to admire what Gaudì had done in terms of furniture.
An idea of what the house was like when the Batllò family resided here and the site had not yet been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
In December we did not find a queue but in any case tickets can be purchased online.

Casa Batllo in Barcelona is one of the absolute masterpieces of the genius Gaudi and one of the most visited places in the world. In this photo you can admire the bizarre shapes of this building from the first to the last floor.
Barcelona has a place called "disharmonious neighborhood" on the avenue of Gracia
style of different styles and design sense of inspiration seems to be in the Gaudi's body constantly pouring
they are mysterious and cute and colorful Another kind of unexpected interpretation of the fairy tale world
has a blue called mediterranean blue
and in the Casa Batllo almost the world's blue consumption has been exhausted
since then it is called Bart Luo Zhilan
Casa Batllo Casa Batllo, casa is the meaning of the house in Spanish, and btlello is the name of the house. According to Gaudi's design, the remodeled residential building was designed and constructed with various curves and playful mood. The shape of the circular staircase of the building entrance is like a dinosaur skeleton, and the handle design of the stairs is also reasonable. Engineering, hand put the tiger's mouth and four fingers and the stairs hand perfectly blended.
The ceiling of the room ceiling is not a plane, but a wave of swirling waves. It is like being in the ocean at home. The shining wall lamp is a creature in the sea, like a jellyfish, like a shell, like a sea turtle shell. . On every floor of the Casa Batll, there is a small cloister with a patio leading to the sky and direct to the ground. It is worth seeing this glass fence. When you walk through it, you will see through the glass that the Shanghai blue tiles are shining. The glass is not pure glass or some fascinating nature. This kind of blur is very similar. You are swimming in the sea, and Gaudi's design comes from the ocean of nature, where you feel like you are in the waves.
The floor is not high, you can go up and you can take the wooden retro elevator, I still choose to walk, each layer is a different enjoyment. Most of the roofs and interior walls are painted with brightly coloured Masai tiles, reflecting the sparkling light in the sunlight, and the photos are not beautiful.
Arrival: Metro Line 2 (red line), Line 3 (Green Line) and Line 4 (Yellow Line) Passeig de Grcia Station, buses H10, V15, 7, 22 and 24 Arrival, the tourist bus also stops at this stop; train Renfe gets off at Passeig de Grcia; FGC gets off at Provena.
Casa Batlló is a uniquely designed building in the “Illa de la Discordia” block of Barcelona. It is the visceral, representative work of the genius architect Antoni Gaudí in the most mature stage of his work. The walls of the entire building are covered with colored mosaics, with a roof that looks like fish scales, pillars like human bones and mask-shaped balconies, all full of magical colors, shapes and patterns. Each evening the lights illuminate the building and it becomes even more stunning as it reflects and shimmers in the light.
