When your outfit accidentally blended in with the background – Antoni Gaudi鈥檚 Casa Batll贸

Official Challenge: can you find a dress matching this background better than mine?

Casa Batll贸 is one of the most important Antoni Gaudi鈥檚 works in Barcelona. This is how it looks like from the outside.

Gaudi loves to use curves in his art nouveau design. I鈥檓 sure I didn鈥檛 capture it right, because it was really too crowded to ruin the beauty. I think the building is cute for sure but I wan鈥檛 really in the mood to capture all the details. Not a travel blogger material …


Important is, I was so happy I happened to wear a dress that blended perfect in the background, which made the tour a bit more interesting.

Did I mention that this time I stay with Anna who lives in an appartment in the center of Barcelona. So I already had an idea how a typical house would look like, how 鈥淧rincipal鈥 floor is bigger and previously functions as 鈥渕aster appartment鈥, also how the inner courtyards should look like.

Casa Batll贸 is of course much more stunning than normal houese, Gaudi uses extensive colors, natural forms, different materials out of nature as decorations for the house, making it so much more interesting to visit.

The audio guide system was great, you can learn stories about every corner of the building with virtual tour. Of course if you are willing to pay 鈧39 for the exclusive visit, it can be more interesting to avoid the crowd.

lift, I really love how Gaudi used wavy glasses everywhere as decoration in this building.

 

 

Gaudi鈥檚 attic is always colorful and cute. I鈥檝e visited a couple similar attics already though.

Conclusions:

I love the blue color tone the building, also all the design of it.

I didn鈥檛 enjoy the crowd much.

I feel I鈥檓 a bit less impressed by those cute European houses after my Iran trip, where I visited too many stunning architectures.

I love my blue dress.
