Casa Batlló is a renowned building located in the center of Barcelona and is one of Antoni Gaudí’s treasures. A rebuild of a previously built house, it was redesigned in 1904 by Gaudí and has been renovated many times after that. The local name for the building is Casa dels ossos (House of Bones), as it has a visceral, skeletal organic quality. The ground floor, in particular, has an unusual web, irregular oval windows and flowing sculpted stonework. There are few straight lines, and much of the façade is decorated with a colorful mosaic made of broken ceramic tiles (trencadís). The roof is arched and was shaped like the back of a dragon or dinosaur.
The Temple Expiatori del Sagrat Cor (Expiatory Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus) is a Roman Catholic church and minor basilica located on the summit of Mount Tibidabo. The building is the work of the Spanish architect Enric Sagnier and was completed by his son Josep Maria Sagnier i Vidal. The construction of the church, dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, lasted from 1902 to 1961. The Tibidabo Cathedral del Sagrat Cor looks down on Barcelona from the city’s tallest peak, Mount Tibidabo. From this spectacular location, it can be seen from all over the city, especially when you are walking up Rambla Catalunya or Passeig de Gracia, you will always see Tibidabo Cathedral on the horizon.
