With its roof of colored ceramic scales, Casa Batlló or Batlló House is one of the most charismatic buildings in the “Eixample” District and one of Gaudi’s most characteristic works.The highly original façade is topped by ceramic tiles reminiscent of fish scales, in a rhythmicsequence that is set to resemble the backbone of a dragon. The circle Block of Discord is formed by Casa Batlló by Antoni Gaudí, Casa Amatller by Josep Puig i Cadafalch and Casa Lleó I Morera by Lluís Domènech i Montaner, which stands on the corner and it is crownedby an arbor. Nearby, you’ll find the Godia, housed in a magnificent building, the Museu del Modernisme Català, which showcases one of the finest collections of furniture, painting and sculpture from this period, and the Fundació Antoni Tàpies, an example of the early modernista architecture.
