Casa Batllo is a residential building built in 1877 for textile magnate Josep Ballo y Casanovas and rebuilt by architect Anthony Gaudi in 1904-1906. Many researchers of Gaudi recognize that the reconstruction of the house of Batlló is the beginning of a new creative stage of the master. The most remarkable feature of the house of Batllo is the almost complete absence of straight lines in its design. There are many interpretations of the symbolism of the main facade, but it seems that the most correct is the interpretation of the building as a figure of a giant dragon – Gaudi’s favorite character, which appears in many of his works.
