Batlló House

The Batlló House, with its covering of colored ceramic scales, is one of the most charismatic buildings in the Eixample area and one of the most characteristic works by Gaudí. The highly original façade is crowned by ceramic tiles with shapes that remind of fish scales and which represent the dragon killed by Saint George (Catalonia’s patron saint).

As a whole, Casa Batlló is intensely evocative of the sea, the Mediterranean, nature, Carnival and magic.

It is advisable to buy the tickets online, at the website, in order to avoid long lines.
