Top sights in Barcelona
Antoni Gaudí saw nature as his muse and used its patterns and shapes to create architectural masterpieces. Casa Batlló is one example that reflects his ingenious imagination, and it should top your list when visiting Barcelona.
In 1904, the Batlló family asked Gaudí to turn their building into an unrivaled showpiece and allowed him free rein to bring his whims of creativity to life. He clearly succeeded.
Gaudí's technqiue, with the use of stone, glass, color, and abstract shapes on Casa Batlló's undulating facade and in its interior, illustrates his brilliance of Catalan Modernism.
It's where the Batlló family lived, and it exudes sheer elegance. The mushroom-shaped alcove, with benches to sit by a fire, is an example of Gaudí's gifted mind at work.
The use of warm tones and wood creates a harmonious flow throughout. The building's shaft, lined with cool shades of exquisite, blue tiles, fills Casa Batlló with natural light.
Eccentric chimneys rise behind what appears to be the contour of a dragon's back, which crowns the roof. The sequence of colored tiles enhances the effect of a scaly surface.

What people are saying about Casa Batlló
The bus is a really convenient way to explore Barcelona. I was in Barcelona with my parents, who don’t enjoy walking long distances and they were super happy to be able to take the bus and move onto the next sight. All drivers and guides on the bus were super friendly and the audio guides were thorough and really well made. The only small problem we had was that the Park Güell stop was changed and neither the App nor the map are up to date so it took us a little while to make it back to the right place. It would be great if the app were updated. All in all I was really satisfied!
I chose the Hop On Hop Off tour because it took me to all the important spots to see in Barcelona at a reasonable price and allowed me the flexibility to hop off and on the bus however many times I wished. My husband had rented a car, but traffic and finding parking was really stressful, so that's why we decided to do the Hop On Hop Off tour.
It was a lovely day to see the sites and amazing buildings of Barcelona. Also having the opportunity to get on and off to visit the parks then enjoy ice creams along the way made our day more enjoyable. I would recommend everyone does this when visiting this beautiful city.
Voucher accepted at World Trade Center stop -- did not have to go to Catalunya Plaza. Frequent buses. The hop on hop off buses for competing company have similar routes but run in opposite direction.
WiFi a bit hit and miss and not all points for ear pieces worked but otherwise a good hop on hop off service with plenty of busses to hand. We had very little waiting around.
