About Casa Batlló

Casa Batlló is a uniquely designed building in the “Illa de la Discordia” block of Barcelona. It is the visceral, representative work of the genius architect Antoni Gaudí in the most mature stage of his work. The walls of the entire building are covered with colored mosaics, with a roof that looks like fish scales, pillars like human bones and mask-shaped balconies, all full of magical colors, shapes and patterns. Each evening the lights illuminate the building and it becomes even more stunning as it reflects and shimmers in the light.

    Dream... The Bartro House can buy tickets online, but it takes five Euros to skip the queue. But in fact, because the tickets are expensive, here is no more than the Saint Family Hall, the queue is not too many people, a few minutes to arrive, so there is no need to buy tickets in advance. Tickets for the Bartro House also include free voice guides and Chinese explanations. And the voice guide here is the third best voice guide I've ever seen since the Harry Potter factory in London and the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam (even better than Van Gogh). It's a modified mobile phone. After clicking on the corresponding numbers of the room, it will show the furniture in the room and where Gaudi's inspiration comes from. For example, an oval window just entering the door, if the voice guide is aimed at it like a photograph, you can see a turtle on the screen that matches the shape of the window and swims leisurely. The Bartro House was inspired by the Catalan folktale of St. George slaughtering the dragon and saving the princess. Such a vulgar story has got a new interpretation here in Gaudi. The tapering scales on the roof are the backs of dragons, while the cross-shaped chimneys are the swords of warriors. The crown of the armrest in the corridor is the symbol of the princess. Strange windows are like giant dragon's pelvic mouth, white windowsills are like masks and tusks, and the windows outside the living room are made of bone-shaped pillars. The white, blue, green and brown paint on the exterior walls is like dragon's splashing blood and reminiscent of Monet's water lilies. Another design element of the Bartro House is the sea. Whether the furniture comes from the spiral, starfish, droplet, gill and bubble patterns of marine life, or the gradual change of the whole patio from the bottom to the roof from white to cobalt blue, or the corrugated glass fence outside the elevator, visitors walking inside the Bartro House feel like they are in the cool ocean world. Dali once described Bartleau's house as: I saw the sea, the raging sea, the calm sea, the breeze-swept sea. & Indeed, there is a connection between art. Goldie meets the surrealist Dali, and the distorting and melting clock meets the turbulent house. Don't make too many comments. Leave Gaudi to Dali for interpretation. Gaudi also displayed amazing perfectionism in Bartro's home, from window size changing with height to door number designed with his unique font, from careful consideration of corridor materials to filtering effect of room color windows, to rooftops and attics similar to Mira's house, but with different materials showing different brilliance, Bartro's home shines everywhere. But fanaticism and humility.

    The design concept of Bartleau House comes from a story. A beautiful princess was trapped in the castle by a dragon. The hero of Catalonia, Saint George, fought with the dragon to save the princess and killed the dragon with his sword. The dragon's blood turned into a bright red rose, which St. George dedicated to the princess. The roof of the apartment looks like a dinosaur from ancient times. The huge body, long tail and scaly scales of the roof in the rain are not as gorgeous as the colors in the sun, but they are amazing enough. The theme of the interior of the Bartleau House is the ocean. In this 3D interpreter, the ocean prototype in the master's mind will be restored, and the interior of the room will be created into the ocean world. Boundary, dark blue light blue color patches scattered on white tiles, and then gradually become more and more dense with the height, and finally constitute the transition from shallow to deep sea. It is really wonderful.~

    Bartleau's House is a masterpiece of Gaudi's mature period. It is a super dream. It likes to match mosaics with colorful colors. It also has various lighting, roof and staircase shapes inspired by nature. It's really a work of God, Gaudi's architectural characteristics: straight line belongs to human curve belongs to God! It's true that it's hard to imagine architecture a hundred years ago. Now it seems that it's still very magical and unique. The key is not only beauty, but also ventilation, lighting, aesthetics and so on. For example, laundry, roof chimney are really fantastic ideas. Master is master. Put on the interpreter, listen slowly, watch slowly, enjoy it very much. It is suggested to leave enough time for about 3 hours. Location is easy to find. On the busy streets of Barcelona, on Gracia Avenue, next door is Amartyo's house, and a few minutes'walk is Mira's house. It is suggested to book tickets online first. Faspass is convenient, economical and time-saving. The balcony door is the shutter switch of the camera. It's interesting, but it's expensive. It's 20 euros per photo (you can download the electronic version online). But you can't get this view by yourself. Travel commemoration depends on your personal preferences.

    Casa Batll & 3; - It's just a blue ocean fairy tale world. It's Gaudi's renovated design. It's famous for its absurd shape. It's a classic work in the history of architectural design. In the Batro House, there are no edges and corners in the whole building. Ocean elements run through the interior decoration. The roof is a huge spiral shape, which spreads around like the whirlpool of the sea, while the center of the whirlpool is decorated with a sea anemone-like ceiling lamp. Soft wavy, blue-and-white mosaics can be seen everywhere, like the sparkling sea. All designs follow the design style of the master - straight lines belong to human beings, while curves belong to God. When you walk in a room designed by him, it's like walking in an undersea palace, with corrugated eaves and colonnades, like being torn by water. It may be a magical ocean world full of dreams or a blue fairy tale home.

    Bartro House, another masterpiece of Gaudi, is located in the famous disharmonious neighbourhood of downtown Barcelona. It's an apartment designed for the Bartro family. The whole building is designed according to the shape of human skeleton. The lines are arc-shaped. There are no right angles in the building. Especially the blue color is the main color with colorful tiles. The whole building has magical color. The shape of Longlin is absolute. The building is still inhabited by the Bartro family and the upstairs part is open to the public.

    The Bartleau House was not built by Gaudi, but it was perfectly rebuilt by Gaudi as a fantastic "Gaudi-style" building. In the horizontal and vertical concrete buildings in the urban area, the wavy undulating shape and color mosaic exterior wall decoration of the Bartleau House are particularly striking. The design concept of this building comes from the legend of "George slaughtered the dragon and rescued the princess" in Catalonia. The roof is arranged regularly with colored glazed spheres, ceramics and fragments of porcelain into the back of Jackie Chan. Like a layer of dragon scales, it shines in the sunshine, while the spires formed by several pieces of porcelain standing on the roof are like sheathed swords, which conform to folklore. It fits the natural lines and is more dreamy. In addition, Gaudi's respect for nature is also reflected in various details of the Bartro House, such as the design of the patio inspired by the deep sea, while the balcony of the outer wall is like the face bone or dragon's teeth, the indoor column is like animal bone, and the indoor railings have iron railings with plant lines. Following the navigation will refresh your understanding of nature. You can choose Chinese explanations, very detailed.

    Run to see it in your spare time: Bartlett's apartment. Only Gaudi, a madman, would think that nature does not exist in a straight line. Curves belong to God. The whole building looks almost all wavy blue and green, which is the color of the sea, sky and sunshine. The mushroom house is very interesting. It is said that it is designed for couples to fall in love. As for the other child, I understand from the audio guide that it is for the woman's nurse. The attic is a giant animal's chamber. The ivory white design is unique, concise and mysterious. As can be seen from the picture, only snake spermatozoa can bend a simple steel into a master's style with modern aesthetic feeling. As for the most amazing part of the house, it's the sunlight patio. For one reason, I'd like to speak to you face to face.

    Visiting Bartro House is an important reserved program for my Spanish trip. Here, gifted architect Gaudi applied the curve to the extreme. Guard-shaped roof chimneys, colored tiles and glass mosaics, ergonomic door and window handles and furniture, mushroom-shaped indoor flue design, shell spiral staircases and roofs, turtle-shaped glass skylights... Gaudi's imaginative performance makes the whole building seem to be full of vitality and amazes every visitor. Today, we have to rely on the sponsors on-site distribution of 3D equipment, in order to penetrate the screen of the machine, to discover those who are almost invisible to the naked eye, masterpieces!

    Online booking, December is not the peak season, but Barcelona really has no off-season, 4 p.m. in the past, no one queued at the door, there are still a lot of people inside, but wait a little, or can wait until no one take a picture. Here is a Chinese explainer, you can listen carefully. The explainer is a mobile phone, and you can see some images on it. It is suggested that you take a good look. If you don't take a photo of Barcelona more than 5 o'clock, the sun will go down. It is specially designed to wait for the sun to go down on the roof of the building. It can be arranged on the top of the beautiful pictures under the sunset. There will be staff inviting you to a small balcony and many projects in China. Well, take a picture and ask if you want to buy it or not. You can choose it. If it's good, it's worth remembering.

    Barcelona is the second largest city in Spain. Ninety percent of the visitors are fans who come to the planetary court. Even if they are ball blind, they haven't seen a complete football match [snickering] so far. It's interesting to worship the architecture of Anthony Gaudi, the Spanish architectural genius. The Bartro House is an apartment building. On Gracia Street in 1907, Gaudi completely renovated the original building and made it full of magic. Gaudi's design was inspired by the story of a warrior killing a dragon: a beautiful princess trapped in a castle, and the hero of Catalonia, Saint George, fought with his sword to save the princess and the dragon. The dragon's blood turned into a bright red rose, which St. George dedicated to the princess. So every design of this house has a special meaning. The cross-shaped chimney represents the hero. The scaly vaulted roof is the back of the dragon, while the colored glass and the balcony with unique conception are masks.
