Barcelona modernism guide - Casa Batlló

You are here: » Barcelona » Museums » Casa Batllo

The roof of Casa Batllo
Antoni Gaudí 1852 - 1926 

View from Casa Batlló.



Not far from La Pedrera is another world famous Gaudi building - Casa Batllo (Passeig de Gràcia, 43).

The house was a renovation project and included to expand the building with two floors, renovation of the first floor and constructing a new facade. Curvy lines dominate the facade which is decorated with a mosaic made of broken ceramic tiles. On the roof is a big cross and several chimneys.

Casa Batllo is thought to be a tribute to the Catalan patron saint Sant Jordi (Saint Gerorge). The blue ceiling is said to represent the dragon's back while the balconies symbolize the dragon's skull and bones. The big cross at the top of the building is said to represent the sword of Sant Jordi, plunged into the back of the dragon.

Both Pedrera and Casa Batllo are both works of tremendous imagination. However, because of their location between buildings, their size is limited and therefore they not comparable with the greatest works of Gaudi like Park Guell and Sagrada Familia.
