A visit to Barcelona, Spain this summer is not complete without a visit to Batllo House and its evening music treat on the rooftop. A rotating sequence of artists are performing there every night until Oct. 1, 2017.

This is no ordinary venue, as Batllo House is the amongst the greatest tourist attractions in Barcelona. Batllo is also a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Exterior of the Gaudi houseExterior of the Gaudi houseIt was designed by the famed architect Antoni Gaudi between 1904 and 1906. The original building was magically transformed into the most unique house anywhere in the world. It is so outlandish that some find it disorienting; surely, a healthy appreciation of surrealism helps to take it all in. Even in 2017 it looks like a science fiction set, so imagine the impact it made more than a century ago!

 

To the right of the jazz and blues singer Monica Green performing when I was there (the lead photo) one can see a group of graceful chimneys, one of four tiled with the same glazed mosaics as the facade of the house.

 

I am printing below the direct link to tickets sales. The best option is the combo tour of the house, followed by the 8pm concert, so plan on arriving around 6pm. At 39 euros per person the combo is great way to spend an early evening in Spain's most popular city. The concert is termed "Magic Nights" and includes 2 drinks (no food), so plan on having a good dinner afterwards.
