Full description

Visit the stunning Casa Battló and La Pedrera on this guided tour.

CASA BATLLÓ: This is a complete remodeling of a previously existing building, the work of Emilio Sala Cortés, which was acquired by the industrialist Josep Batlló, a wealthy businessman who owned several textile factories in Barcelona. For the remodeling Batlló commissioned the project to Gaudí, at that time an architect of great renown, who at that time worked on several projects at the same time: the Expiatory Temple of the Sagrada Familia, the Bellesguard Tower, the Park Güell and the restoration of the Cathedral of Santa María in Palma de Mallorca. The industrialist was so impressed with the work of the architect that he recommended it to his friend, Pedro Milá, for whom Gaudí built the Casa Milà (popularly known as La Pedrera) between 1906 and 1912, and which we will later have the opportunity to visit. Casa Batlló is a fabulous example of Gaudí's artistic stage known as a naturalist, inspired by organic forms of nature that he had previously studied carefully, giving rise to ingenious structural solutions.

CASA MILÀ "LA PEDRERA": The building is located on a corner of Paseo de Gracia with Calle Provenza, in the Eixample district of Barcelona. In full industrial moment when the bourgeoisie was consolidated as a privileged estate, Gaudí was commissioned to build a manor house by Pedro Milà i Camps, a wealthy businessman whose father had forged his fortune in the textile industry. The Milà project consisted of building a large building to use the main floor, known as the noble floor, for its own residence and to dispose of the rest on a rental basis. The construction suffered several delays due to the fact that the building exceeded in height and width the established in the municipal ordinances. During the guided tour you will have the opportunity to visit the patios, the last three floors (roof, attic and one floor) and the temporary exhibition that is on the old noble floor (the availability of this area is subject to the exhibition calendar of the foundation ). At the end of the visit, you can stay in the building for as long as you wish.

Gift to my daughter
My daughter Caroline studies architecture and my gift for her this holidays was a trip to Barcelona to visit the amazing masterpieces in the city. According to her, the guide had a very good knowledge about Casa Batllo and Casa Milà and knew a lot about Gaudi. We both enjoy it and im happy with that.
