PotW 006

The unique ceramic chimneys of the Casa Batlló. Behind them are the playful lines of the roof of the building that look like the back of a dragon or a dinosaur. Casa Batlló is one of the masterpieces of the insane, but at the same time genius, architect from Catalonia – Antoni Gaudi. It was designed and built in 1904 for the middle-class family Batlló.
