About
The Casa Amatller is the most complete work of Catalan modernism. Built by the architect Puig and Cadafalch in 1898, it is located in the called Manzana de la Discordia, next to the famous Casa Batlló by Antoni Gaudí. The façade has been admired since its beginnings, although its true treasure is in the interior, thanks to the original conservation with all its furniture and decoration. Casa Amatller offers daily visits in 4 languages and its opening hours are from 10 am to 6 pm. Also, it offers commented visits, at 11 am 12am and 17 pd. A unique opportunity to discover the true history of Barcelona at the beginning of the century!

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
How to get there
  • Passeig de Gràcia • 4 min walk

    Fortunately largely conserved as in 1900
    It was relatively good value compared to its next-door neighbour, being about one-fifth the entrance price, albeit the latter being a Gold ticket. It was a memorable visit, from gazing at the wonderful façade to tasting an Amatller chocolate at the end; said chocolates being the source of the family’s fortune. Designed by the famous Catalan architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch it has exquisite decorative flourishes throughout. Colourful glass, lighting, metal work, carved wood and marble are delightful. His wealth allowed Amatller to pursue his interests in art and photography; winning awards in the latter endeavour. It was interesting to see a couple of his cameras that accompanied him on his Egyptian visit. From his collection are shown a range of paintings and also decorative art artefacts including gorgeous glass. At the end of the visit we received a chocolate from their famous range and tasty it was. In the courtyard where the Café tables are we saw the final fascinating segment. A large circle on the ground outlined where his motorcars were rotated for exit, after being driven in.

    Lots of furniture to see
    We enjoyed the house and all the details, especially the amount of furniture still in the home. You really got a sense of what it may have been like in its original time. Much more that the other homes we toured. The preservation and care taken to ensure it stays in as good of condition as possible was impressive. We did the guided tour at 10am as that was the first tour of the day. We did the 8:30 Casa Batllo prior and had about 30 min wait in-between. We didn’t realize the cafe was open, so if you do this schedule go to the cafe before your tour! Our guide was very nervous and checked his notes a few times, he struggled a bit to find the words he wanted in English. He warmed up a bit at the end as he relaxed more I think. I think he could use a bit more practice, but will be a great guide in the future. His passion for the house was evident in the at he shared his knowledge. When we went off the script a bit you could tell that he was very knowledgeable about the home.

    Very well preserved
    Although not quite as attractive on the outside as its next door neighbour, there was far more to see inside. The furniture was laid out as it would have been when it was lived in. I had an audio guide, and a girl came round with me to point out where to go next. There’s a coffee shop there too, which is where you end the tour, and a shop selling their chocolate. Definitely worth a visit.

    Casa amattler
    With casa battlo's queue being more than an hour, we went to the adjacent casa amatller and went to the digutal museum for 14.90. We spent around an hour, the first floor was dedicated to modernism, with a section where you can colour relevant historical figures, the second floor was dedicated to dragons, with an immersive 360 room and a vr video. The gift shop had cute souvenires at good prices.

    Stained glass barrel ceiling
    Casa Amatller is right next to Antoni Gaudí’s famous Casa Batlló. Architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch designed Casa Amatller in Germanic elements and Gothic style. In the lobby, you will find a beautiful stained glass barrel ceiling, if you are a fan of stained glass, you will appreciate this.

    Lovely find
    We had never really heard much about casa amatller and it certainly isn’t as publicised as it’s neighbour. However it was a wonderful surprise and well worth the money. We did the house and the digital museum and both are well worth the money.

    NOT TO BE OVERLOOKED BY CASA BATTLO NEXT DOOR
    Don't overlook this building next door to Casa Battlo. It's sometimes overlooked by visiting tourists that only have eyes for it's more illustrious next door neighbour. However, it's very distinctive in it's own right. It has a lovely mosaic facade, beautiful balconies and special window features that make it well worth seeing especially if you're next door anyway.

    Chocolate shop - buyer beware.
    The casa was great to visit, appreciated the original finish and furnishings. If you visit the chocolate shop inside, know that it's marked up because it's the cafe selling their chocolate - it's not the official shop!!! We found the original shop next to Casa Mila and prices were 20-30% cheaper. Buyer beware. Giving this a minus 1 star as this part was deceiving, we were given sample chocolate as part of tour to "sell" us on this and wasn't told about the official shop.

    Often overlooked as it is next door to Casa Batllo, but definitely worth a look. Very well preserved interiors. A guide takes you round. There is also an optional light show which we didn't do. A great addition to your visit to the two Gaudi buildings on the same street.

    Great house, eh on the tour setup
    Beautiful, richly ornamented house - for someone who loves the look of old house museums, I definitely preferred it to Casa Batllo next door. I just wish the setup didn't make you feel quite so rushed through it - you get an audioguide to take you through the house, but you have to be part of a guided tour in order to walk through, and the pacing of the audioguide is controlled by the tour guide. Which means unfortunately you don't get to linger and admire, or go through at your own pace. It was a great place to visit, but would have preferred to be able to go through on my own.

Casa Amatller Casa Batlló and Casa Lleó-Morera make up three interesting buildings showcasing Gaudi's works.

Casa Amatler was originally constructed in 1875 for an archaeological enthusiast Antoni Amatller. He passed away in 1910 but his daughter kept this place until 1960 when she passed away.

As the original family kept this building for so long the interior remained original.

Its role now is that it serves as a historic house, museum, café, and anda an Institute for Hispanic Art.

Scheduled tours are available.

I came in the evening about 90 min before the closing time, but managed to get a guided tour with a few others. I had the "Barcelona Card Modernista" so did not need a reservation. It was an interesting layout and fun to go through. There is also a small shop to purchase their delicious chocolates! Worth a visit if you have the extra time.

We were told that there was a hidden specialist Chocolate shop inside, and there is...

We didn't do the museum tour or explore the building, we came for the Chocolate alone and nothing else.

Managed to get a small table in the sun in the open garden on the inside.
We sat and dipped toasted bread rolls into warm melted Chocolate. We were promised the best chocolate ever, it was good but not the best. We both agreed that lindt would be better melted. The chocolate is rich, you do need the cream added and mixed in. If you like dark rich chocolate, this may be the best for you.

We did at least hint it out and try.
One for the chocolate lovers
