Travel - Barcelona, Casa Batllo

Well here is the second post on our trip to Barcelona. This time I thought I would show you a few pictures of Casa Batllo - One of the houses Gaudi designed in Barcelona. It is a magnificent house! So beautiful and colourful. The whole house is made using curves and hardly any straight lines or surfaces, even the walls are waved. He was said to be inspired by the ocean and marine life when designing this house. 
These photos just show you a few of the houses details, they really don't do the house justice, it really has to be seen in person. 
 Bannister Knob
 The windows of the main room
 Ceiling and Light in Living Room
 One of the light wells
 Air vents in attic
 Amazing arched attic corridors
 The beautifully tiles chimneys and roof
 The tiled front of the building - how amazing is it! It is sometimes also called the House of Bones because the balconies look like skulls and bones, or the House of the Dragon because of the scales ridged roof.
