Experience the Culture of Barcelona

Experience the culture of Barcelona through the eyes of famous architect Antoni Gaudi. Some of Gaudi's most popular creations can be found in Barcelona, including Casa Batllo, Park Guell, and La Sagrada Familia.

Casa Batllo, also known as Casa dels Ossos, was built between 1904 and 1906 in the heart of the city. It was originally a home, redesigned by Gaudi in 1904. It has since been refurbished and is now a museum that features very little straight lines.
