Whipped up between 1904 and 1906, this really is a Gaudi classic! In a homage to Catalonia’s patron saint St Jordi (St George in English money), who went around slaying dragons in his spare time, the Catalan genius uses the exterior to represent a dragon with a sword stuck in it. The skeleton-like windows are said to represent the remains of the beast’s victims and locally the place is known as the ‘house of the bones’.
The inside is just as bonkers and trying to find somewhere to hang a picture must have been a nightmare for the Battlo family who commissioned Gaudi to do the renovations!
We love this house and if you have to choose only one Gaudi building inside the city to enjoy, then this would be the one to go for.
