Barcelona with kids

I am José Gómez, a full time licensed guide and  father of 2 little ones who love to discover exciting things about Barcelona.

I have guided to hundreds of families with children through this monument.

Children really enjoy  Antonio Gaudí´s buildings and Casa 

Batlló is one of his most original works.

Why children love Casa Batllo by Gaudi?

  • They love all colors, shapes and fantastic shapes  that are present in this gem by Gaudi.
  • There is the representation of a big dragon on the roof. Children want to know why?.. and of course, there is a reason. During my guided tour I will explaint you why.
  • Inside the house is like an underwater world: marine turtles, wavy windows and different types of blues give the impression that we are exploring a new world.
If you want to have a real experience, I recommend you a guided tour.

Some tips to visit Casa Batlló with children and enjoy it to the fullest:

I am going to give you 8 tips to visit Casa Batlló with children and enjoy it to the fullest:

1. Before entering, stand on the opposite sidewalk, from where you can enjoy an excellent view of the facade.

On the roof you will see a large stretched dragon with his scales. The façade is inspired by the legend of Saint George who saved a princess fighting a terrible dragon.

2. Buy tickets in advance and on the official site as there are some web portals that charge you an extra commission.

3. Make your visit first thing in the morning. You will enjoy it much more.

Inside the Casa Batlló the corridors are narrow and when many people gather, the little ones can become overwhelmed and lose interest in the visit.

4. When entering, let the children go first and leave them set the pace.

The whole house is a great surprise and when we go from one room to another. Little ones love to discover all these items and show us.

5. As you go up to the attic, you will see a transparent glass on the landings that when looking through them gives us the feeling that we are diving.

Gaudí was inspired to decorate the interior of the house in an underwater world.

6. When we reach the attic, a white spiral staircase awaits us that goes up to the roof. Children enjoy this spiral stairs because they do not know what they will find at the end. It leads to the roof.

7. From the roof you enjoy a magnificent view of the city and you can touch the back of the dragon!
