This work of Antoni Gaudi is a very well known tourist destination and therefore I will not be here to tell you why, when and how it was built. Let’s focus instead on the impact that this has on the visitor attraction just after the rock of the long queue at the ticket office!

If you can arrange a visit at a time of day when House Battlò is not too crowded you will be able to appreciate the brilliance and beauty of Gaudi’s architectural choices, the rounded windows, tiles colored with various shades of blue, rounded attic corridors, stained glass and chimneys made ​​with the care and attention they deserve. Real works of art. So, as you may have guessed, the 17 euro and 80 of the entry ticket is well spent.
