Casa Batllo by Gaudi
|Casa Batlló by Antoni Gaudí|
The Casa Batlló was built in Catalonia’s Modernist style and is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You will see the nature inspired design of the Casa Batlló and its facades that are shaped like natural corals, earning it the name ‘House of Bones’. You can also see Gaudí’s use of colours and the chimney pots with the Trencadis artwork. This technique, pioneered by Gaudí, uses a mosaic of colourful ceramic tiles.
Casa Mila by Gaudi
La Pedrera (1905), also known as Casa Mila, can be found at No 92 Passeig de Gràcia at the junction with Carrer Provenca. The word "Pedrera" means "Quarry" however the original name of the house was Casa Milà. This is another masterpiece by Antoni Gaudí and was designed as a fashionable home to the wealthy Milà family. The name Pedrera was used locally to describe the building because of its stone like appearance and the name stuck.
Casa Vicens by Gaudi
