Albeit that Gaudi was commissioned to design and build a new house for the textile industrialist, Battlo,  the architectural genius opted to re-use the existing building, repurposing many of the materials but the final creation can only be described as an extraordinarily beautiful house.

What is commonly referred to as the house of bones because of its bone like support structure on the ground floor the house seems to transform itself with mosaic like muscles and blood vessels to a scaly lizard skin to the undulating scales of a dragon that is perched on the roof.  For those that are fortunate enough to go inside, the eccentricity continues as it appears you are walking through the undulating creatures’ soft organs.
