This is inside the Casa Batllo, a house that Gaudi was commissioned to redesign for the Batllo family. After the Sagrada Familia it's the single most stunning creation I saw in Barcelona, and was worth every penny I spent to get in. I could have spent hours and hours there (as it was I think I was there 3 hours), just wandering around taking it all in.

It's a monument to his imagination and passion for all things nature-inspired. It's like walking around something from 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea. I was blown away by it. The original shot is considerably less technicolour, but that's simply not how I remember it.
