UNESCO World Heritage Site: Casa Batlló @ Barcelona, Spain | 聯合國教科文組織世界遺產﹕西班牙巴塞隆納的巴特洛公寓
April 13, 2009, Monday
Casa Batllo @ Barcenola, Spain
After so long from my trip in Europe, but never show the places that I have went in details!!! Since looking some old photos, so I decided to write more details about this place I have went in Barcelona!!!
*******************************************************
回想多年前的欧洲之旅,其实并没有好好地为每一个去过的地方写一片比较完整(或者应该说详细)的博文,刚看回当时旅行的照片, 所以决定为这一个在巴塞隆纳的地方写一片详细的游记!!!

Casa Batllo @ Barcenola, SpainCasa Batllo @ Barcenola, SpainCasa Batllo @ Barcenola, Spain
I have want to visit this Casa Batlló of Antoni Gaudí's masterpiece and UNESCO Heritage very much but friend not interested!!! So, on last day in Barcelona, friend and I have agree to go around separate but meet up at night later for dinner!!!
*******************************************************
我很想到西班牙建筑大师安东尼.高迪(Antoni Gaudí)这一座联合国世界遗迹的杰作「巴特洛公寓」里面看看,可惜同行的朋友却不感兴趣!!!于是在巴塞隆纳的最后一天,我们决定分开逛,依自己喜好和时间到自己想要去的地方!!!其实巴塞隆纳这地方实在有太多东西可以看,因为时间不足所以才有这个打算,也好吧,各取所需嘛!!!我们最后才汇合一齐吃晚饭!!!

Casa Batllo @ Barcenola, SpainCasa Batllo @ Barcenola, Spain
Have to pay entrance fee for €21 per person!!! This is quite expensive but I have saw many people going in, but because early I don't have to queue up very long!!! Once go in, can see the stained glass window and the special arc architecture!!! I think very nice and keep taking photos at the entrance!!!
*********************************************************
入场费是蛮贵的21欧元,不过还是看见很多人前往参观!!!不过幸好一早就去到,所以也不用排很长的队就可以进去了,一进到里面就看到这些彩色玻璃窗和独特的弧形建筑设计,觉得非常漂亮,所以在门口就已经开始不停的谋杀相机记忆卡!!!

Casa Batllo @ Barcenola, SpainCasa Batllo @ Barcenola, SpainCasa Batllo @ Barcenola, Spain
After entrance is going up to first floor, can walk up either by the stair case or by an antique elevator, but because many people waiting the elevator so I walk up the stair case!!! Along the stair case, can see all the mosaic on the wall are all in the theme of blue color, give a big contrast with the gray color exterior of the building!!!
*******************************************************
门口过后就是直接上去二楼了,可以选择走楼梯或者乘搭那一部古董升降机,不过当时很多人都等着乘搭升降机,所以我选择走楼梯为佳!!!一路走上去,可以清楚看到墙壁上的瓷砖保存得很完好,而且都是蓝色调的,和建筑外貌的土灰色呈现一个很强烈的对比!!!

Casa Batllo @ Barcenola, SpainCasa Batllo @ Barcenola, SpainCasa Batllo @ Barcenola, Spain
This is the first floor with many of these kinds of arches designs, and the floor is with mosaic with flower pattern!!! The whole place is white in main color and the lighting make the whole place feels so special!!! It said Gaudi never use straight lines in his design, can see from this to prove it!!!
*********************************************************
二楼有很多类似拱门的设计,地上是有小花图案的瓷砖,正个设计以白色为主,加上灯光,确实是映照出一种难以形容的特别感觉!!!据说高迪大师的设计里都不会用上直线,由这个地方的设计看来,此番说话确实可见一斑!!!

Casa Batllo @ Barcenola, SpainCasa Batllo @ Barcenola, Spain
Here is the way to go up to the roof from the first floor with a spiral stair case!!! I love the design and have stand here for so long for all the people go up to the roof, so that I take this photo without any background people!!!
*******************************************************
一楼通去屋顶的旋螺式楼梯,個人非常喜歡這一個角度!!!不過因為要等到所有人上去了之後﹐等了很久才拍到者兩張完全沒有人在背景的照片﹗﹗﹗

Check out this, the roof of Casa Batlló, is one of the most popular features of the entire house due to its famous dragon back design. Gaudí represents an animal’s spine by using tiles of different colors on one side. The roof is decorated with four chimney stacks, that are designed to prevent backdraughts. The roof's arched profile recalls the spine of a dragon with ceramic tiles for scales and were given a metallic sheen to simulate the varying scales of the monster, with the color grading from green on the right side, where the head begins, to deep blue and violet in the center, to red and pink on the left side of the building.
*******************************************************
巴特洛公寓屋顶上的龙背设计,是整座建筑最为人津津乐道的,而屋顶上所见的四个烟囱则是为了防止火患而建。。。高迪以不同颜色的细小砖块堆砌成龙背上的鳞片,右边用的是绿色,中间用的是蓝紫色,而左边用的是粉红和艳红色。。。

Casa Batllo @ Barcenola, Spain
Can see Barcelona view from the roof top!!!
*******************************************************
屋顶可以愿望巴塞隆纳市区景色!!!

Casa Batllo @ Barcenola, SpainCasa Batllo @ Barcenola, SpainCasa Batllo @ Barcenola, Spain
Come down from the roof go back into the first floor again, can see this section which called as "The Fire Space"!!! It is lighting illusion section show the life of occupants of the house back in last time like hanging to dry the clothes!!! Of course, they also show the picture of Antoni Gaudí too!!!
*******************************************************
由屋顶下来回去二楼是另外一个区域,这区域名为「火的空间」(The Fire Space),是由当代建筑师英葛·摩利尔(Ingo Maurer)设计的,是一个灯光与视觉的奇幻空间。。。以幻灯呈现当时屋里的人的日常生活,譬如晾衣服,当然也简单而郑重地把高迪的肖像包括在内!!!

Still no chance to try the antique elevator when I have to went down and leave!!! But can take photo from another angle of the stair case and decorations on the wall is also not bad!!!
*******************************************************
下楼离开前,还是没有集会乘搭那部古董升降机!!!不过也可以安慰自己,可以用不同的角度再次拍摄楼梯口和蓝色瓷砖墙壁,也算是挺好的!!!

this post is a tribute dedicated to 小影 @ As An Unrest Life (the post title 煩憂生活 is Unrest Life translated into Chinese).. just my personal opinion that this young lady blogger actually started a little down and emo, but i think she actually turned to be more happy and confident later, after mingling with some of the crazy bloggers here, haha!! but i am sure no matter what, she's a very nice young lady, just look how much heart she has put in to share and to give.. dear Sheta, thank you for your support and comments, and what do you think of this mimic of your style?? hehehe.. :p
這一篇博文係特別獻給小影 @ As An Unrest Life以示致敬的.. 就以我個人的印象嚟講, 呢個年輕女博客, 開頭時總係有點負面及憂鬱嘅, 不過可能同呢度不同嘅喪博客混熟咗, 個人都變得更加開朗同自信.. 不過無論佢係點, 始終都係一個友善的人, 大家見佢點樣落足心機分享或送嘢俾人就知啦.. 致小影, 多謝你一路來的支持同埋留言, 你喜歡呢篇模仿你風格嘅遊記嘛?? 哈哈.. :p

    2. Aikkks, today talking about travelling hor.. Errr, I'm worried I can't comment much coz I don't go travel often, later bikin malu leh..

      Delete
    3. But really, sekali pandang, already know it’s Xiao Ying’s post.. I also got to know her blog from SK’s blog rolls.. Aiya, most of the bloggers here that I know and visit also are all from SK’s blog rolls.. Initially, shy to leave comments in her blog, but if I not mistaken, I think she left comments in my blog first.. Quite early somemore leh.. Earlier than STP sometimes, haha.. So from then, we “know” each other liao lor..

      Delete
    4. Hmm, to me leh, she’s not emo la, but cute la.. I like to read her emo posts though.. Especially when I go thru her blog, there are labels right.. I like to read her “Feelings – Angry” posts, haha.. The ones she complained about her sister becoz of her niece and all, and it’s all becoz of a comb! Haha..

      From her posts, I can feel she’s a friendly and loving person.. Very “hau soon” to family, loves her niece and nephews to bits.. Kind and adventurous too.. Sometimes crazy, like waiting under the hot sun, or under the rain.. Extreme girl, don’t play play!

      Delete
    5. All her posts are very “real”, no “fake fake” (kaka), and she dares to voice out.. Well, it’s her blog, her post, her like, her sukak!

      I like the previous post, about balloons and standing under the sun and under the rain, being single and all.. I like what she wrote.. Straight from her heart.. Actually, it’s all these “true” stuffs you all write, which make people come back for more..

      If you are too “commercial” and talks about restaurants, events, gadgets and food only, then macam a bit boring.. If that blog everything ada, then baru syiok.. A little bit of emo posts (radio-deejay), a little bit of food, little bit of this that, baru best.. Oohh, I like office stories too.. Rants…
      Come on, we all have rants..

      Delete
    6. I agree 100%! I like to read other peoples rants and stories. Baru syiok like eating fried rice with a lot of liew!

      Delete
    7. I went over and did a quick scan of her posts and the emo posts. I like the sharing of emo as I can relate to it most of the time. I will come back later.

      Delete
    8. who? Xiao Ying emo? got meh? Never really seen her emo or fake la.

      I saw many emo post lah. Some will just emo publish then delete. LOL....Some will simply copy from some where and pretend own one....whatever la Princess Ribbons. I know is confirm Xiao Ying not one of those. She 100% genuine one....ahemm...not saying this coz she sent me poslaju stuffs ah...

      Thank you Xiao Ying for your stuffs.

      Yea enjoyed looking through Xiao Ying travelling

      Delete
    9. Xiao Ying not emo la, but very real and genuine like you said.. Adventurous, crazy and brave one this girl.. Like standing under the sun, or under the rain.. Very determined too..

      Oh, I'm currently using the cute nail clipper from her.. I brought to office, can clip my nails when boss is not watching LOL

      Delete
    10. and you forgot leh she gone all the way to singapore for exibition. Think she is very artistic. Same like SK. Xiao Ying box reminds me of SK's bento box. packed nicely, Feel specail when opening it

      Delete
    11. I think she has gone past her emo stage and her current posts are very interesting and informative. Makes for good reading. When I am free I will sure go over again and catch up on what I have missed.

      Delete
    12. Good Morning Bloggers! Yes I could tell it is the blog post of 小影 @ As An Unrest Life!! Well done SK. i clicked "LOVE" already!

      As usual, all the others jumped inside here and gawked without clicking the LOVE-HATE buttons. Need to make a habit when come to a shrine, need to clasp hands and maybe put joss stick. Come here must click buttons after habis read la... Adoi.

      Delete
    13. Yes I was aware that she was emo once upon a time. She was just growing up then and now a happy go lucky blogger la. I guess Princess Ribbon and Sotong Meow were not here during her puberty la. Muahahahaha

      I learn a lot of happenings in KL from 小影 @ As An Unrest Life. Thank you to her.

      Delete
    14. Yes, she started with an emo state but now she's a happy person. I realised that she has grown up quite a bit. She's not shy as before. Great to see her in person.

      Delete
    15. TM, thanks for the reminder. Always forget! Clicking now.

      Delete
    16. Ya, I got her box also - so very nicely packed, very beautiful. Sad that I had to take it apart... My girl loves the Korean seaweed...so I saved all of them for her.

      Delete
    17. Ok, I clicked Love liao..
      I just used the nail clipper this morning, before people started to come in, teehee..

      Delete
    18. He's absolutely right...I was very emo one (even I might get emo sometime, but not as often as last time already)

      Princess Ribbon, you're so funny lo...I almost forgot about the comb thing, hahaha~~~ that was very long time ago...now I won't be angry anymore because I immune myself already as I was working with my sisters argh...she always like that one...always get very angry on small small thing, so now I know how to one eye close and one eye open already!!! =] But you so cute lo, I guess people don't like to read about ranting stuffs one lo, you're the opposite side (but if really want to complain, I've tons of stuffs to complain, hahaha!!!) So sweet of you le...glad you like it!!! =]

      Meow, if too emoing I'll delete, but now no more...don't really care much, not like I use blogging to earn any cents(by advertisement area always remain "zero"!!! =.=!!!)

      Thank you TM!! =] I'll try to blog more things happen in KL, like the 75 years Batman celebrations, the Flora 2014 Putrajaya....hehe!!! Hopefully I've enough time on blogging after get into my new job next month!!! =]

  4. Good morning SK.

    1. Haha, Meow so funny la.. Ter-slip fingers and lazy to erase.. Hahahaha..
      Ok, pinjam copyright, next time I also follow ok..

      Delete
    2. eih, plagiarised?? this is a very serious word leh.. if i never say i copy 小影 then i am plagiarising lah, but then at the note, black and white i said i copied her style, so this is mimic and a tribute lah.. don't label me with plagiarism can?? :D

      Delete
    3. Plagiarise means copy and paste wor. No ah? LOL

      This one is mimicking only. Hehehe

      Delete
    4. To be exact, plagiarize means to copy and paste but never quote the source.. just copy and paste but quoted the source is not, just like me mimicking the style, if anyone eagerly wants to label me as "copying", that's up to their view but personally i am up to my own conscience.. :)

      Delete
  5. Long time ago wor your trip.

    Nice to walk around that place from what i have heard. Not that I have been there before.

    Anyway ..yea that is the problem if travelling with friends some wanna do this some wanna do that. But it is more fun travelling with friends la.

In fact, very much earlier. I had to leave my first group of friends as I had already promised to meet her at the appointed time.

      Hear me TAIPING??????...... Shame on him! You all Taiping sistas never open arm and roll red carpet to invite SK to visit your territory. At least you could organize a picnic by the lake for SK and Fing Fing to enjoy all your cookings and bakings!

      Claire, you can consider that place, not bad, but nothing much to buy la... Hehe :p

    2. can lah, if Claire can go to Australia, i guess there's no problem for her to go to Spain also.. Barcelona is a beautiful city, nice place to go.. haha, this Hayley, first time fly already flown so far away :p

    1. SK wants to quickly finish all his tribute posts, that's why everyday also have post.

      Delete
    2. Bet it's not easy for perfectionist SK to do them all!

      He has to study all the blogs and mimic our individual style.

      and he's posting it daily so that we can always see whose next excitedly. *not bodek mode*

      Thumbs up SK.

      Can't wait for the next post. :)

      Delete
    3. Yep, me too din't expect another post today! Like I said, SK must have quite a lot more tributes to pay that's why he needs to speed things up!

      Hmm yea, 小影 post is like that, so need some times to load the photos ;)

    4. Serious ya? I've already cut down the size duh...don't understand~~~

    5. Me too...Only saw his post late night. Didn't expect.a new post from sk. Maybe ff post for him. Lol

      Delete
    6. 小影, erm may be that's the line problem also la.... My internet speed sucks!

      Delete
    7. haha, same like your blog lah STP, all the LARGE photos take ages to load also.. every morning i'll open your page, then get dressed and then come back to comment before i leave home :D

      hahaha.. the month is ending soon, so gotta finish up all my tribute posts ASAP.. aiyah, bocor by Yannie why i blog daily this week :D

      Delete
    8. Can put photos LARGE size but nicer for readers if the photos size get resized a bit.

      Mine always got resized from 4MB down to less than 100KB. I think it helps also. No?

      Delete
    9. it's okay to resize because blogger by default will link your photo displayed on your posts to the original size stored in their server.. if you want to see larger photos, can click on the photo lor.. but then, i've disabled that in my posts, haha!!

      Delete
  14. reading the first sentence that mention "but never show the places that I have went in details!!!" I immediately know who you're paying tribute too! LOL

    1. Hehe, me too, this sentence is so 小影 style! ;)

    3. Haha yea, and also the map at the end, she always put that in her posts.

    4. haha, that map actually makes everything looks more professional and detailed right?? 畫龍點睛 leh~~ :)

  15. Trivia : do you know the word gawdy or gaudy comes from Gaudi's name.

    In case some didn't know, gaudy means ostentatiously or tastelessly ornamented (I copy pasted this from meriam-webster) ^^

    1. I din't know that, thanks for sharing lina!

      Delete
    2. oh, i didn't know that!! thanks Mak Glam the walking Dictionary to share this.. haha, but then i don't think Gaudi is tasteless but i indeed love his design!! hmmm~~ :p

      Delete
    3. Well, maybe at that time his neighbours didn't like his designs. It is after all, different, right? ;)

      And you know how sometimes societies don't like non-homgenous acts. :P

      Delete
    4. ah, if you have read the history of this Casa Batllo, it's the owner who hired Gaudi to design something different and unusual for him, and he gave Gaudi all the freedom to do so.. the owner was so forward thinking huh?? :)

  16. Hello SK!
    Wah never expect a post today! Thought your style is one post every 2 days, is it because too many readers you wanna mimic, tak sempat already so must hurry up? Hehe...
    So fast, this is already the 10th post!!

    I guess this post took you some times to draft and finish, cause it's lengthy! See there're so many photos, I think you need time to go and find out those photos (since it's from 2009), then need to recall the memories and blog... Most importantly, you need to blog in dual languages!!! Look at the Chinese part, it's the proper Chinese, not like those Cantonese-Chinese you always blog... I guess its quite a challenge for you lo!

    But you made it la, with all the fonts and style, and the tone which is like 小影。。。 And also the way she blogs, always very details and long one.. Erm I am not saying she is 长气 but her posts are always very long and detailed one... That's her signature!

    This is another successful mimic I'd say! She sure is very happy and proud about it! =)

    2. It's surely a great tribute for her. I wrote about my meeting with her today. She must be very happy and proud today! Way to go, my cute little friend!

    3. Actually...my blog name was come from a ghost movie one...guess it was 5 or 6 years back, when I start blogging...I want an English but can't think of one, then I remember that's a ghost movie I like it very much name "Unrest"...so I just use it lo...I know this's very ridiculous right?? I understood!! =]

      Delete
    4. errr, whether Unrest means 煩躁 or 煩憂 or not then must get 小影 to explain herself lah.. i just do a direct translation here, hehe!!

      errr, indeed took some time to write up this post.. from selecting the photos, to writing what i can remember, and also find some facts about the place.. and then writing in two languages!! fuyoh, not easy at all but i enjoy doing that :)

      Delete
    5. wenn, yea, I saw the photo, you both look sweet la!

      小影,oh I see! It's from a movie title.... Never mind la, as long as you like, no one can say anything about that...

      SK, haha yala, I saja ask only :p
      Can tell you are enjoying la, else you also won't come out with so many tribute posts la!

      Delete
    6. yalah, i enjoyed doing that lah, something different mah.. at least i got a direction and no need to scratch head to think for topics to write, hehe~~

    1. I'm so so so happy that you're using Gaudi's architecture to mimic my post duh, because he is my idol since his La Sagrada design and because of him I fall in love into architecture!!! Still remember during secondary school, I save all my pocket money just to buy architecture books, I won't miss out a book which has explanation on La Sagrada...remember during secondary school lots of school will put artist poster as their file cover? but mine one was the La Sagrada building duh...hahahaha~~~ Also this is part of the reason why Spain become my dream place to visit, just because I want to see his arc by myself...

      Delete
    2. The most unforgettable is his quote "直線屬於人類,曲線屬於上帝" how pretty of this quote, non of his designs can replace by anyone!!!...argh...(must go back find out all my treasure book to read again) never feel bored by looking at his arc...just so incredible amazing and non of words can describe it!!! =]

    4. oh, i actually didn't know you like architecture because i only remember you like aeroplane!! and never even expect you like Gaudi that much.. ah, i am lucky to get all the things right!! hope you like this post.. :)

      oh yeah, it's Gaudi almost everywhere in Barcelona.. have been to a few places that he designed, they are indeed so awesome and remarkable!! but i only have time to go into this Casa Batllo and Parc Guell only.. if i have got a chance to go there again, i want to go into Sagrada Familia and also Casa Mila.. what else?? :)

      Delete
    5. He has lots of designs beside these, but those you mentioned are those very famous one!!! Hehe, now I'm thinking I should plan a trip just got there to visit Gaudi arc only, hahaha!!! =]

  25. So you have been to Spain too! How you find about that country?
    I've been to Barcelona in 2008 and honestly, I love the place but not so much on the food, haha! Just not used to their style... And that trip I went, we din't spend much time on shopping, din't really buy a lot. Plus I see most of their things are quite expensive leh, 不舍得买咯!After convert to RM, just more or less the same only... And that time Euro is still quite expensive, if not mistaken it was 1EUR = 5 MYR.

    This one Casa Batllo, wasn't in my list last time, this is also an UNESCO heritage? Wow, just like the one I visited at Bergen Norway, so I bet it's worth a trip! But the entrance fee is really quite expensive! After convert it's like nearly RM 90!! But you were being a tourist back then, so never mind la, 有些钱就是不能省~

    1. I actually love the architecture! I think Western/European architectures are amazing! I am not a person who love visiting church/museums but then if I am oversea, I sure won't mind a trip, cause their designs are simply unique!
      I think you made a right choice by using the stair case, I'll choose to use the stair case as well if I were you, can take the time to slowly enjoy every single details!

      I love the first floor design, the lightning makes everything so romantic! Gaudi never use straight lines in his designs? Wow, now I learn something! I love those designs, can curi the ideas if I am designing my own house in the future, hehehe! Even the roof design is unique as well!
      The fire space looks cool leh! And can tell it was kinda hot back then? The sun is glaring!

      I personally think 小影 is quite an easy going person, erm now that you mentioned she was a little down and emo before this, yea, macam got... But that was long time ago la! These days she always share about her travel experiences, and she is also a very 细心 and generous person, she sends gifts to her readers, some are even handmade one!

    2. yeah, i just went to Barcelona.. and you went there in packaged group tour?? ah, maybe that's why you didn't have much time to explore the place.. errr, we spent 3D2N in Barcelona, and the food was nice woh.. i still remember the pintxos (they skew everything and they eat that as snacks, but for us, can be proper meal).. you can refer to my old post here, i so 念念不忘!! if got chance to go there again, i must eat this again..

      yeah, lucky i paid to go into this Casa Batllo, it's really very beautiful inside.. i love those very creative and "eccentric design for the standard then".. if i am going to Barcelona again, i must go to Sagrada Familia, it took the modern engineers years to figure out how to build from Gaudi's design, and years upon years to build this cathedral.. it's amazing!!
