Casa Batllo

This Gaudi apartment building was one of the most fascinating things I've ever seen. If you ever get to Barcelona, don't miss it. Gaudi's use of color and light and organic shapes is ingenious. I think my favorite part is the blue-tiled inner light shaft.

A pretty good website with a virtual tour here.

Thanks for posting these. Fabulous! I love Gaudi. More than any other architect, he had originality, to say the least. Glad you enjoyed your trip!
