The locals call Casa Batllo the ‘Casa dels Ossos’ which means the ‘House of Bones’ which tells you everything you need to know about the outward appearance of the building. This is one of the most architecturally interesting buildings that Gaudi created and the light inside Casa Batllo lets you take in the majesty in all its glory.
You can skip the line at Casa Batllo and check out all the iconic features for which it is famous. Some of these include the slain dragon that lies on the roof and is said to be an ode to the story of St. George and the dragon. The home dates from 1877 when the Batllo family bought it and asked Gaudi to help with the renovations. As Gaudi was given complete creative freedom to design the home however he wanted, it looks like the jaws and bones of a wild animal and the interior is designed with different sized windows to make the most of the natural light.
The home is separated into five different areas and spans some 5,000 m2 and you can spend the day exploring every nook and cranny of the structure. When you buy a skip the line ticket you can also get a video guide which will let you learn all about the amazing background history of Casa Batllo.
