Casa Amatller was the home of famed chocolatier, Antoni Amatller Costa (1851-1910) and is one of Barcelona's most impressive (and mind-boggling) buildings. Spot the dragons, knights, and other mythical characters on the facade, and wander the rooms and halls inside. It's one of modernist architect Puig i Cadafalch's most incredible works!
Casa Amatller was remodeled to a new modern state by Puig i Cadafalch, one of the most famous architects from Gaudí's time. You can almost see inside his twisted mind when you look at the facade - a mind-bending mishmash of colorful tiles!
Walk around with your audio guide and see the original furniture used by the chocolatier Antoni Amatller Costa (1851-1910) and his family. This man was a bit of an early Willy Wonka. He traveled Europe visiting chocolate factories, and inherited the family business from his father and uncle before turning 25.
There might not be any Oompa Loompas around but you will see the majestic bedroom doors featuring sculptural allegories, the dressing rooms and bathrooms, the dining room, music room and the scullery.
Afterward, get yourself a bar of chocolate, it may just be the one with a golden ticket!
