The Best Casas of Barcelona, Spain.

Beautiful Barcelona – beautiful houses or casas. I was really impressed with the houses of Barcelona, they have different styles and some of them are very unique. In my opinion, Antoni Gaudi’s casas have changed the look of this otherwise typical European city, I really like his style and I wish there had been much more houses designed by this great architect. But some other houses in Barcelona look interesting too.

Here are some Best Casas I liked the most (see them on the map at the end of the article).

Casa Evarist Arnus (1903), designed by  Enric Sagnier, address: Manuel Arnús, 1-3

Casa Batllo. A slender building originally built between 1875 and 1877 and remodelled in 1904-1906 by Antoni Gaudí and Josep Maria Jujol, address:  Passeig de Gràcia, 43. The local name for the building is Casa dels ossos (House of Bones), as it has a visceral, skeletal organic quality. And Casa Amtller, architect: Josep Puig i Cadafalch, address: Passeig de Gràcia, 41. A building originally designed as a residence for chocolatier Antoni Amatller and constructed between 1898 and 1900.

Casa Lleo Morera, Casa Batlo, Casa Amtller are the three unique modernist buildings in one block and known in Barcelona as Illa de la Discòrdia -”Block of Discord”.

Gaudi Casa Batllo and Casa Amtllers

Casa Calvet(1899) designed by  Antoni Gaudi, address: Carrer de Casp, 48. This building is the most conventional of Gaudi’s works, partly because it had to be squeezed in between older structures and partly because it was sited in one of the most elegant sections of Barcelona. It was designed for a textile manufacturer.
