Casa Batllo Architecture

The building that became Casa Batllo was built in 1877. Gaudi began his stunning renovation in 1904 and work was completed in 1906.

The local name for Casa Batllo is Casa deis ossos, “House of Bones”. The façade of the building is covered with broken ceramic tiles that create a colourful mosaic. Casa Batllo's most defining features is its curved roof that resembles a dragon's back.

As Gaudi once remarked, there are no straight lines in nature and as a result there are no straight lines on Casa Batllo. Stone pillars seem to twist and curve like bones and the undulating balconies seem to rise and crash like waves. Inside, the natural theme continues with every feature calling to mind some element of the natural world like caves, forests and plants.

Materials used to build Casa Batllo include stone, metal wood and ceramics.
