Casa Batllo Magic Nights: Live Music Under the Stars

Every night this summer, and running well into November, enjoy open-air concerts on the Dragon Roof Terrace of Gaudi's Casa Batlló in Beautiful Barcelona. Casa Batllo Magic Nights, as they are so called, are a series of nightly performances of various different musical styles open to the public.



What is Casa Batlló?


Casa Batlló is another gleaming example of renowned architect and artist Antoni Gaudi’s unique vision and creative ingenuity.


Located on the Passeig de Gracia, Gaudi built Casa Batllo to be a residential building. The striking facade is a shining example of Modernisme and draws crowds captured by its strange beauty. Blue, green, red and purple, give way to balconies that lead up to a multi-colored tiled roof that represents St. George and the dragon he slew.


Inside, Gaudi continues to impress with whirlpool ceilings, lavishly decorated rooms, chandeliers, tiles and beautiful stained glass windows.

For the next 5 months, you can enjoy this spectacular building under Barcelona’s night sky, without the crowds and accompanied by a live musical performance at the Casa Batllo Magic Nights.
