Continuing our family trip in Spain, particularly Barcelona :D...
I certainly hope I don't bore you with Gaudi's masterpieces as I have written in the first 2 blogs in our family adventure...
Well...now...allow me to introduce Casa Batllo this time....
another vivid example of Gaudi's out-of-this-world creations...
Only a few blocks from La Pedrera, this apartment is another proof of Gaudi's amazing interpretation of underwater world..duly applied to the apartment design..
well, at least that's what I heard on the audio guide :D..
So, I wouldn't mind at all to stay in this wonderful apartment..
man, the details are amazing...
Still with no straight lines, yet it's pretty unique...
Built in 1904 - 1906, Antoni Gaudi was commissioned by Mr. Joseph Batllo to build and adorn his apartment...
|The veranda....what do you have in mind seeing this :D..|
Along with Bo, Udi et big flocks of Gaudi lovers (aka tourists :D), we strolled and continued being wowed by Gaudi in the legendary Noble Floor (used to be the former residence of the Batlló family, incredibly unique and spacious),
|even the vase and the window are out of this world :D...|
|look at the wall.....and the window...|
then the Loft (the former store rooms and laundry rooms which I love to see...the washing room is soo cute :D),
Of course we went to the Roof Terrace with its mythical Chimneys (where you will see the famous backbone of the dragon slain by Sant Jordi, or Saint George where I took tons of photos with Bo et Udi),
|My fave...the chimneys....so cuteeee.....|
and the fabulous building well (once the communal stairwell...please see the details underneath :d...breathtakingly beatiful ;) ).
|inside the house....blue tiles dominating the wall..|
Loveeee it.....and hope you share the same feeling, too :D...
Meanwhile....we have more photos to share
So enjoy and cheers....
