Gaudi’s Architecture Tour
Casa Batllo and Sagrada Familia Uncovered
Casa Batlló is Gaudí’s architectural treasure and the most emblematic work of the brilliant Catalan architect, built between 1904 and 1906 at the very heart of the city.
Gaudí’s conception of the Sagrada Familia was based on the traditions of Gothic and Byzantine cathedrals. His intention was to express Christian belief through the architecture and the beauty of the building and communicate the message of the Evangelists.
He achieved a symbiosis between form and Christian iconography, with a personal architecture generated via new but thoroughly logical structures, forms and geometries inspired by nature, with light and colour also playing a central role.
