Directly after visiting La Sagrada Familia, we hurried over to Casa Batllo (bot-yo). This is another building designed by Antonio Gaudi. Gaudi designed it for a wealthy man with a large family of 5 children in 1904.
The outside of the home itself is an adventure. Gaudi wanted this home to look as if it was a dragon. I can’t imagine what the neighbors were thinking back in 1904 when this house was being built. I wonder if they had a similar reputation to that of the Addams’ Family.
Gaudi had this homes’ design pinned down to the very last detail.
This is the stairwell in the home. Gaudi wanted to make it feel like you were under water. I felt like I was in Alice in Wonderland. The roof top is where my mind was officially blown.
It was so stinking colorful.

And if you haven’t already guessed, Casa Batllo is exactly where this photo was taken! Side note: If you do not already like Kelsey Lately on Facebook, do it and do it now.
The girls wanted to pose like their
hot mom. Aren’t they cute?
Gaudi, you’re a frackin’ genius!
