How Long to Visit Casa Batllo? Breaking Down the Visit


Gaudi’s Casa Batllo should be planted near the top of any Barcelona itinerary, but how long does a visit to Casa Batllo take?

I wanna help you properly organize the timing and booking times for your various stops, as it is imperative to know how long a visit to the Casa Batlló lasts so the rest of the day runs smoothly.

Let’s get into it.

A typical visit to Casa Batlló should take about an hour and a half for most visitors.

That said, let’s break down a typical Casa Batllo visit in greater detail.

I’ve made sure to account for the typical travels rituals of most travelers:

  • The virtual reality audio guide provided to you at the entrance lasts an hour
  • The outer façade is so amazing that you should be allowing will be at least 10 minutes for photos
  • Another ten minutes (if not more) will be spent observing small details and symbols in every corner of the house
  • Once on the terrace you’ll be obsessed with the famous Crest of the Dragon. Add 10 minutes here.

Again, taking these factors into account, a visit to Casa Batlló by Antoni Gaudi should take you around an hour and a half.

But this figure also depends a lot on you and your level of interest in architecture and photography. Me, I usually end up at the best restaurants near Casa Batllo after about 90 minutes.

⚠️  2024 Warning ⚠️: It is strongly suggested to book your Casa Batllo tickets in advance.

Sell outs are very common and lines on site can take 20-30 minutes – not to mention ticket windows are 4.00€ more expensive.

Doing so also helps us get one step closer to our dream – doing Barcelona Hacks for a living! 🙏

Finally, I really need to stress before your visit it is important to book your Casa Batllò ticket online.

Especially in high season, time slots tend to sell out so visitors are often turned away and told to come back later. You can avoid this by booking smartphone tickets in advance to skip the lines:

After the visit to the Casa Batlló we remind you that just 300 meters away you can find another great work from Gaudì: La Pedrera.

    Hi, finding your blos very helpful in organising our visit, we're looking to book Casa Batllo for next month, is it really worth paying for the gold ticket over the blue ticket? Or is itjust not worth the extra?

      Hi Elizabeth, Honestly, for most casual visitors the Blue Ticket should be enough. There is no major part of the house that is kept away to these tickets, though I must say that the virtual reality tablet and the extra residence are certainly worth the extra €10 for big Gaudi fans such as myself :) Cheers,
