Another Gaudi masterpiece, no straight lines, and the support pillars all look like human bones joined together. On the roof there are strange dragon-like creations, with the scales made of mosaic tiles. Casa Batlló was originally built as a house; it must have been a strange place to live.

By the way, the local name is Casa dels ossos; literally “House of Bones”. Here are some more photos.

Casa Batlló, Barcelona. This door is one of the landings in this very strange house built by Gaudi. I like the details in the wood, and the almost cartoonish feel to the picture.
