Located in the bustling city center and considered one of architect Antoni Gaudí’s signature works, Casa Batllo can perhaps best be described as a combination of Modernist and Art Nouveau architecture. Gaudí’s design goal seems to have been to avoid straight lines—completely. Much of the facade is decorated with mosaics made of broken ceramic tiles, ranging in shades from golden orange to greenish blue. The roof is arched and often described as resembling the back of a dragon or dinosaur, so it’s not surprising that most locals call the building "House of Bones." Originally built for a middle-class urban family, this is one of two Gaudí houses available for touring. Skip the lines by booking your tickets online.

Was a bit hesitant because of the price (€22 for students) but as an architecture student, I felt I owed it to my education to go. It was definitely worth it! Beautiful building, the audio guide was informative and just all around a great curated experience. Highly recommended!
That case when the site from outside looks more impressive than inside. Have no idea why the entrance fee is so high. Good news for all of you - since summer 2019 all the renovation works are over and facade is visible and shining as never :)
