On to another Gaudi masterpiece… I hope you’re not bored yet (personally I could look at Gaudi all day…), and here we have Casa Battlo.
This is another of Gaudi’s designs located on the Passeig de Gracia and is one of the most colourful buildings you will come across in Barcelona (and that’s saying something).
I love both the outside and inside of this one, with the beautiful chimneys and roofing proving that you can have style and function in one.
Local people apparently call this the “house of bones” because of the appearance of the balconies on the front of the house, which some say resemble skulls.
Originally built for a wealthy middle class family, you won’t find any straight lines anywhere in this property, with everything down to the hand rails going up the stairs designed with curvaceousness in mind.
I came back again at night, and it’s possibly even more stunning in the dark … simply beautiful. I hope you enjoy the photos, any comments are very much welcome.
