Create an itinerary including Casa Amatller
Fascinatingly geometric, Casa Amatller represents a prime example of the Modernisme architectural style. Considered one of the three most important buildings in Barcelona, the 20th-century structure features a pyramid-like roof and an interior lined with intricate columns and stained-glass windows. It was originally built for chocolatier Amatller Antoni Costa, and the ground floor of the residence has been restored to preserve the atmosphere of its first owner. Tours of the house are offered at specific times and for small groups; book tickets in advance or in the lobby of the building.

  • Faborit restaurant provides the best hot chocolate in Catalonia. The prices are also affordable and the place is based in a beautiful building. Highly recommended.
  • Amazing architecture. Only one hickup, no mention that the wealth was acquired at the price of a near genocide of the indigenous peoples of South America and the labor of African slaves. The stigma during the visit. Amatller was there only for the exploitation of chocolate by any means. There is NOT ONE piece of south American art or any piece related to the cacao plant, vine, or cultivation. The reverse side of this beautiful visit is not too bright.
