Casa Batlló is often overlooked by many people because it's on the same road as La Pedrera (also by Gaudí) and the latter of the two buildings tends to draw more attention.

I personally don't know why as Casa Batlló is a stunning creation and every bit as awe inspiring as La Pedrera.

Casa Batlló was designed by Gaudí for a wealthy Barcelona aristocrat. The lower levels were for the owner and the upper floors for renting. The "house" is now a museum and I highly recommend visiting this building.

My brother and I visited Casa Batlló for an afternoon and then spent the rest of the evening discussing why Gaudí had placed two ornamental pillars in the entrance to the terrace.

Gaudí' s work has a magical characteristic of activating your imagination. His work silently challenges you to ask questions, so be prepared to be thinking about what Antoni Gaudí was trying to achieve well after you've left his creations.
