Barcelona, Day 4: Block of Discord

Block of Discord includes Casa Batlló, Casa Amatller, and Casa Lleó Morera. They are all on the same block and famous for unique modernist style.

Casa Amatller
The elegant motif on the wall and beautiful lamp
Stained glass
Not allowed to pass beyond the rope
This is what you see when you look up from the stairs.
Casa Amatller, designed by Josep Puig i Cadafalch, is right next to Casa Batlló. It was built during 1989 and 1990. You can go inside the lobby and take pictures, free of charge. The rest of the building is off limit.

Casa Lleó Morera
Amazing details
Casa Lleó Morera, designed by Lluis Domenech i Montaner, is the end unit on this block. The ground floor is now an upscale retail store. If you are interested in touring the building, you can go to their website to make an appointment for a paid tour.
