One of the most desired to visit houses of the famous architect Antoni Gaudí in Barcelona that has an original facade, with a high resemblance to a dragon, and even more surprising interior design. One of his masterpieces, in Passeig de Gràcia, that is known by different names. House of bones, the dragon house, and the real name, Casa Batlló, which was given by the man who contracted Antoni Guadí to renew the building, Josep Batlló.

The renewal works of the building lasted from 1904 to 1906, and was the last of the buidlings to be known as “mansana de la discòrdia”, the other buildings are Casa Ametller and Casa Lleó-Morera nearby.
The tour includes an audio and smartguide. First time I’ve seen this. Through a small tablet device, pointing the camera to different places during the tour offers a visual guide of how it was (without tourists) and few imagination details, like flying turtles amongst other representations of parts of the interior. Similiar to a VR tour, it offers a follow through the whole visit in several languages.
