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.
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.

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
The Casa Batllo is a converted home with the theme of the sea, and the glass mosaics of various colors inlaid on the outer walls are particularly beautiful under the sunlight that reflects the sea. The front of the building is the sea surface, and the interior is below the sea surface, which is the construction of the seabed and the seabed cave. The chimney on the roof indicates the form in which the smoke oscillates with the wind and gradually rises.
The middle of the house is a maritime-themed patio, surrounded by diamond-shaped blue tiles of different shades. The higher the color, the deeper the color, the light outside is illuminated through the top, it feels like it is The bottom of the sea spies on the world of the ground. The most exciting part is the terrace on the top. The "ridge of the dragon" is composed of undulating green glaze and red balls. The white corolla cross next to it has two meanings. One represents the sword of the warrior and the thorn is on the dragon's ridge. Its shape is derived from the fruit of cypress, which is a symbol of life.
3D interpreter, with Chinese explanation. When you are aiming at the attraction, the screen will restore the furnishings in the house or the source of inspiration for Mr. Gaudy. This private house is full of imaginations, and the details are full of humanity.
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.
