Casa Batllo, at Passeig de Gracia 43, is the centerpiece of the 'Apple of Discord' block ('manzana' is Spanish for both 'block' and 'apple'), sharing foundations with work by two more Modernista architects, Domenech i Montaner and Puig i Cadafalch.

Casa Batllo features in our list of Barcelona's Most Controversial Buildings.

Renovated by Gaudi in the first decade of the twentieth century, this is something that Gaudi actually finished! Not only did he add his colourful Modernista touch to the facade, he also did the interior too.

Entrance to Casa Batllo is a staggering 20€, though it includes an audio tour. You can pre-book your entrance and skip the line on the day here: Casa Batllo Skip-the-Line Entry and Audio Guide.

(There are a better angles from which to take photos of this building, but at least this way you'll recognise it as you walk past!)
