Casa Batlló

In late May, I finally took a trip inside of Casa Batlló, surprising myself that I haven’t yet been considering the close proximity to my apartment. So when a friend came to visit, I definitely took her up on the visit. I had read about this building in an art class in college, how Gaudi didn’t use a single right angle in his work. But it was still very interesting to see. You hardly noticed it, unless you were looking.

The whole building was made to look like you were underwater, which rich blue accents on all of the tile, fluid staircases and shapes reminiscent of shells. It was very beautiful, but I couldn’t imagine this ever being someone house. But I’ve heard that people still live. I’m not sure how they would with all the tourism, but there were a lot of locked doors.

Even the pack patio was as colorful and intricate at you can imagine. If I lived here and ever felt sad I think just having a walk around back here would instantly turn around my mood.

What an amazing view of Passeig de Gracia from up here. I even got a discount for being a resident. Pretty nice. I’m glad I finally made it!
