1. Barcelona (cont'd)(More from the Casa Battlo brochure:)
The Beauty Of The Curve
"Casa Batllo enchants its visitors with its extreme design, its repertory of visual solutions, its' creative use of materials and colour, and-- of course, being a work by Gaudi-- the allegorical values of a masterpiece that bewitches everyone who loves the fantastic, the theatrical, the life affirming. Casa Batllo unites the family spirit of its time and the talent of great artists, architects and designers to make something unrepeatable and inimitable. In the heart of the most elegant and most commercial Barcelona. All the evocative powers of Casa Batllo, the sea, naturalism, thatricality, carnival, magic, is like a fantastic parable and links the beginning of the 20th century with the beginning of the 21st with its values of freedom and individuality, breathing the same imaginative spirit that inspires the city today. An extraordinary place, now open to the public for the first time since it was built almost 100 years ago. Open so that those who appreciate the value of the peerless, of the special and of things well done can enjoy it."
"Casa Batllo opens its doors to you."
