Casa Batllo


Gaudi's Casa Batllo is the most beautiful building. I was hypnotized by its lines and curves and colours. We spent a few hours there and I have come away so inspired.
This is the main room looking out onto the street.

The central staircase and air shaft



Some of the roof mosaics

This is the attic space - I love the lines and the light

The chimneys where merged to create a more interesting effect and tile with broken tiles because you can't tile around curves with straight tiles


This window has air vents as part of the design

Lisa,

Such A fascinating building shame no one ever followed Gaudi, if they did it was always much more subdued.
