In Summer 2005 a visit to the apartments and rooftop of Casa Batllo cost EUR 16. This is the worst EUR 16 you will ever spend!

When we visited the apartments the airconditioning systems were being repaired. Fine, I understand that is necessary. However, there was dirt, dust and tools all over the place with no sign of any workmen. The apartment was completely unfurnished (unlike the beautiful Casa Mila) and not well maintained. To access the roof it is necessary to ascend about six floors. During our visit the elevator had "Out of Order" signs on the doors, but we saw it being used by caterers to bring tables and chairs into a reception / banquet room, while people with mobility difficulties had to take the narrow stairways.

Save your EUR 16 for a nice lunch nearby and savor the views of Casa Batllo, but only from the outside!
