Casa Batllo

Casa Batllo

The Casa Batllo used to be a private home, but is now used as a venue to host private events. True to Gaudi’s style, there are hardly any straight lines, including curved archways and a ceiling that seems to swirl like water going down a drain. It was remodeled using the structure of an existing building, and owned by the Batllo family until the 1950s. Descriptions of the shingled roof describe it as “a dragon’s back” and I have to say that I agree, given that the roof does not follow a single angle and has multicolored shingles – it definitely has an organic, animal feel to it.
