Casa Batllo in Barcelona
Casa Batllo in Barcelona is a typical example of modernist-style architecture, specific to Barcelona and an important tourist attraction

Casa Batllo is a building restored by Antoni Gaudi which was built in 1877 and remodeled between 1905 and 1907. It is located on Passeig de Gracia in the Eixample district of Barcelona.

The building is known as the "Casa dels ossos" ("House of Bones") and really has a visceral and organic air. It was originally built for a middle-class family in a prosperous Barcelona quarry.

Casa Batllo looks truly remarkable like any other building designed by Gaudi and fits perfectly with the Modernist or Art Nouveau style. The building shows that the one who designed it tried to avoid straight lines completely and most of the facade is decorated with a mosaic made of various colored ceramic pieces. For a visit to Casa Batllo, there are audio guides in eight languages who can provide much more information about this remarkable building and about the master who completed it, Antoni Gaudi.
