Gaudí under the moonlight

If you spend some days in Barcelona, you have to taste his cava (spanish champagne) and, even better, do it at the roof of an emblematic building.

The Gaudí's Casa Batlló, a major landmark of the Modernista style Barcelona, remains open until midnight (last entrance at 23:00 hrs.) all the the Thursdays & Fridays during the summer. At the end of the visit, you will enjoy of a glass of cava in the rooftop, with its dancing chimneys.
This masterpiece and architectural jewel was designed by the world-renowned Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí and built between 1904 and 1906. This major landmark of Catalonia's home-grown Art Nouveau, Modernist style, stands on the Passeig de Gràcia.

Behind the Modernist style façade, its rooms express their difference with the most refined succession of artistic and architectural details designed by Gaudí with the utmost creativity and featuring the finest work by artists and professionals from the period.

In the Modernist style of Gaudí, light, colour and form combine with wood, ironwork, glass, ceramics and quarry stone in a fantastic and surprising way.

The visit take around 1 hour. The night admission costs 25 €.
