Walk To Gaudí Casa Batlló From Las Ramblas

Page Content

Q: My cruise ship docks on 09 May. I am taking a taxi to the Las Ramblas. I want to visit Casa Batlló and need to know if it is in walking distance from the Columbus statue. I'm in good walking condition and have passed the building before, but have never been inside, especially the roof top. Any information would be appreciated.

A: The walking distance from the Columbus Monument, at the foot of Las Ramblas, to the Casa Batlló is about 2.5 Km. Depending on your walking speed it could take anything between 40 minutes to 1 hour at a leisurely walking pace and no stop off. If you are in good condition and it is daylight then it is quite a nice walk along La Rambla. At the top of La Rambla walk across Catalunya square to Passeig de Gràcia and continue walking up until you come to Casa Batlló at No. 43 Passeig de Gràcia.

If you desire a shorter walk you can always take the Metro from Drassanes - which is close to the Columbus monument on La Rambla. There are a number of metro stops along the way, and you can, therefore, determine how long you want to make your walk. The stops are in order from your starting point to Casa Batlló:

Passeig de Gràcia.

If you take the correct exit at Passeig de Gràcia, Casa Batlló is just outside the metro however Passeig de Gràcia station is large and confusing, and I have to admit that even I get a little disorientated finding the right exit for Gaudí's Casa Batlló. It may be better to get off at Catalunya and walk 15 minutes to Casa Batlló if you only want a short walk.
