Make it a Trip to Remember...

Add on a bite to eat, a walking tour or a wander round Casa Batlló!

If there is beauty in building, it exists in Antoni Gaudí’s breathtaking Casa Batlló. Designed in 1904 but based on a previously existing building, Casa Batlló is an example of architectural brilliance at its finest. It is locally known as Casa dels ossos (House of Bones) due to its skeletal and visceral qualities. Casa Batlló welcomes all visitors, and, as the nature of the building makes it difficult for larger wheelchairs to navigate the house freely, are happy to provide suitable wheelchairs. The famous Casa is also the first museum to adapt its visit for blind people in accordance with ONCE. The museum is a tactile environment, and guests are welcome to feel the forms and textures of the building. There is a 3D model of the facade, as well as methacrylate relief plans with explanations in Braille. Information in Braille is available in many different languages. There are audio guides of the museum, and printed versions of these are available in a number of languages for those who are hearing impaired.
