Casa Batlló Opening Hours
Casa Batlló is open 365 days per year from 9.00 am to 9.00 pm (last entry: 8.00 pm).
I recommend you buy tickets for the 9.00 am slot because there will be less people so you can enjoy your visit without the crowds! Moreover, I advise you to start your journey from the roof without the smart guide and then come back to the first point. By doing this, you can enjoy the empty attic and roof of Casa Batlló.
Duration of the Visit
The estimated time of the excursion is 45 minutes but we think that you will spend more time exploring Casa Batlló, at least, 1 hour 20 minutes.
Casa Batlló is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The House of Bones is one of Barcelona's most iconic attractions and an indispensable stop for discovering the talent of Antonio Gaudi and architectural modernism at its best.
Skip the Queue
It is better to buy tickets online as:
- You will be able to choose between different options and consider the best one for you;
- Allows you to buy tickets with fastpass and enter Casa Batlló through the priority line.
Casa Batlló Night Visit
If you fancy visiting Casa Batlló in the evening, I have something special for you. On the roof of Casa Batlló from 9 June to 24 September, the program "Magic Nights" offers an excursion to Casa Batlló with a smart guide, live music on the terrace and two glasses of cava. The cost is 36 euros. There is also a ticket for 29 euros, but it does not include a tour of Casa Batlló, so you can enjoy only the terrace and the evening view of Barcelona.
Casa Batlló Virtual Tour
Thanks to the virtual tour you will be one step ahead of the game - you can explore Casa's Batlló facade, rooms and main symbols prior to the visit and understand what parts of the buildings you find most interesting.
During Your Visit
To make your excursion more memorable Casa Batlló provides you with an audio-guide, free wi-fi and a special place to take photos...
Everyone receives an audio-guide which consists of two devices: mobile phone with big screen and headphones. An excursion is offered in 8 languages. Every time you are in a new room you should find a tablet with the corresponding number, select it on the screen of your Smartguide and listen to the information. Thanks to the effect of virtual reality you can move your device and see how people lived there.
I recommend that you check to see if the smartguide works well or not before starting the excursion.
For all Instagram and Facebook lovers Casa Batlló has free wi-fi in all the buildings so you will be able to post and share your photos on social media without any problems with internet connection.
Of course, do not forget to subscribe to the official account of Casa Batlló on Instagram and use a hashtag #casaBatlló.
Best Places to Take Photos in Casa Batlló
There are lots different places to take photos on the first floor and on the roof but the most interesting place is the balcony. There is special equipment with camera installed on the balcony on the last floor so you will have the chance to get an exclusive photo against the background of the unique facade of Casa Batlló. The only inconvinience is that you need to pay for it :)
