Casa Batlló

The streets of Barcelona are vibrant and full of energy. The tourists, locals and the architecture mingle to create an electric atmosphere that is almost palpable. Casa Batlló is one of the dominant architectural icons of modernist Barcelona. It was built by Antoni Gaudí between 1904 and 1906 having been commissioned by the textile industrialist Josep Batlló. I remember just stopping in my tracks as I first caught a glimpse of this landmark. The fanciful, pastel facade adds a bit of whimsy and contrast, to the grays and browns that surround it.
