The apartment we rented was in the most central location! Within a few paces we were already in some of the most important streets in Barcelona if not Spain. The street is called Passeig de Gracia. In fact the same street has the most interesting block called “The block of discord” where one can see 5 types of architectural style buildings all in a row. Of all of Gaudi’s work the Case Batllo has to proven to be my favourite. Looking at this building which was done in 1877 sends an overwhelming sensory overload. It was if Gaudi created a fantasy world of mystical creatures.
It really is a wonderful sight to behold and everywhere I looked I was in a state of amazement. Nix and I took our time in exploring the entire house and left inspired by the wild imagination of Gaudi’s genius. The photos will show you the reason why this is easily my favourite Gaudi work. ENJOY!
