Casa Amatller

Casa Amatller, as you’ve never seen it before

If you’re interested in exploring this fine example of Catalan modernist architecture, you can now visit it in the company of actors playing the parts of its original owners

Casa Amatller, which is located at number 41 Passeig de Gràcia, very near to Casa Batlló, is one of the most representative examples of Barcelona’s Catalan modernist legacy. It was constructed by the architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch in 1900, on commission by local chocolate magnate, Josep Amatller. The house is impressive both on the outside – its façade combines both gothic and Catalan modernist elements in a powerful contrast – and inside. And now, the interior of this important building can be visited in a very special way on 7 April and 2 June.

Imagine that it’s the original owners of the house, Antoni Amatller and his daughter, Teresa Amatller, who personally welcome you inside, perfectly dressed in all of the splendour of their age, before offering you a cup of hot chocolate. As you make your way with them around the house it will feel like time has stood still. The dramatised visit with period-correct clothing supplied by Barcelona’s Museu del Modernisme will allow you gain a new insight into the building while learning all of its secrets.

You can now register and reserve a place on the tours. Additional information is available on the Cases Singulars website.
