Casa Amatller and Casa Batllo

Casa Amatller and Casa Batllo

Casa Amatller and Casa Batllo, Paseig de Gracia, Barcelona, Spain

We were walking down the Paseig de Gracia, window shopping, since the prices were not that attractive at all the uber branded stores! (Really! 90 euros for a tie-die like t-shirt?). It was around sunset. And luckily for me, the sun happened to shine in this exquisite way on the two modernist buildings side by side – Casa Amatller and Casa Batllo.

Of course, I could identify only Casa Battlo. Antoni Gaudi. A bit of time on a search engine helped me identify Casa Amatller – with its colorful steps profile. Casa Amatller is the work of another Catalan architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch.

Anyway, after photographing this building, and how nice looked in the light, we walked on. I must say that one can never ignore a modernist building (unless of course you pass by it twice a day..). Love it or hate, but you will notice it!
