Modernisme: Casa Batlló
© All Rights Reserved
Casa Batlló one of the most exuberant and renowned representatives of Modernisme or Catalan Art Nouveau in Barcelona, by Antoni Gaudí, is located at Passeig de Gracia, 43. Built between 1875 and 1877, became the property of Josep Batlló Casanovas by 1900 who first thought of demolition but then fortunately after four years decided to commission Gaudí to renovate the building. These few words are just an introduction to the whole story which you can discover along with excellent pictures at the official Casa Batlló Site. You almost have to stand in line for a good shot here, flashes firing all over your head, so I guess I must be travelling in somebody's photograph on the way home.
Note: I re-edit this post to say that I have discovered a similar picture at Bob´s Barcelona Daily Photo that appeared in January this year. Sometimes it is inevitable that we overlap. Anyway each of us will give you a personal approach to Barcelona, so the experience will be more enriching.
