Casa Batlló is, without a doubt, a symbol of the city of Barcelona and one of the great works of Antoni Gaudí. This spectacular building, built between 1904 and 1906, amazes and surprises with its striking and spectacular facade.
The original facade of the building was replaced by the architect and artist with a fascinating design that creates a colorful pattern through glass, stone and ceramics.
Although it is surrounded by very important modernist architectural works, such as Casa Lleó Morera by Domènech i Montaner and Casa Amatller by Puig i Cadafalch, the truth is that Gaudí’s Casa Batlló has not lost its prominence. In fact, it is one of the most special and charming buildings. Perhaps that is why it is one of the most visited. And perhaps it is so special because Josep Batlló, by commissioning Gaudí with this project, gave him total freedom, allowing him to unleash and express all his talent without restrictions.
Casa Batlló is one of the works that best represents the wonderful imagination of Antoni Gaudí. And one of the most obvious proofs that when he was allowed to let his imagination run wild, he was capable of creating true wonders.
