“Great small tours, not overcrowded with tourists”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

People always visit the Gaudi houses in Barcelona, but this one is well worth a visit. You take a small group guided tour, our tour guide was so friendly and knowledgeable. This is one of the greatest experiences we had while we were in Barcelona! I highly recommend!

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

Our guided visit to Casa Lleo & Morera exceeded our expectations. It is a truly beatiful house and a fine example of modernism.Our guide was very knowledgeable about the house and it's history and explained all the intricacies of the house to us. He also gave us plenty of time to have a really good look at the house. An added bonus at the end of the visit was a quick visit to see that entrance of nearby Casa Amatller so we could appreciate the difference between the foyers of the two buildings. The foyer of Casa Lleo i Morera is smaller with a single stairway and that of Casa Amatller is much larger and with separate stairways for the occupants and the staff /tradesmen.

“We need more time to see”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

I thank for visiting the winderful house. It was nice tour. after checking in, the guide explained the history of BCN , the family with using slide show. I could get to know the background anout Casa Lleo. Also we could see the previous building before reforming and the original house which Domenech did on the slide. After 30 mins, we started to walking round the house. especially the entrance hall was quite dark,so it was dificult to take photos ,but you can find wonderful sculpture by Eusebi Arnau. sculpture,mozaic, stained glass. tail - a lot of jewelry here,so I needed more time to see ! I might visiting again.

“One of our favourite trips of our holiday”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

We absolutely loved Casa Lleo Morera - joint first place for my favourite visit during our stay in Barcelona (tied with the Palau de la Musica Catalana - by the same architect - and the Sagrada Familia). We did the English speaking tour with the charming and informative Daniel. We were lucky because there were only three of us in the group! There was a very interesting slide show to start and then we toured the house. As others have noted, there are no furnishings here but there are photographs to show you how things would have looked and, to be honest, the interest here is in the architectural details. Everything here is wonderful, the tiles, the mosaics, the wood paneling and floors and the remarkable stone work. Daniel explained the story behind these and that was interesting in itself.

The real highlight for me though, was the stained glass. It was all exquisite, culminating in the extraordinary bow window of the dining room! Even the original wooden elevator has stained glass insets! You do only get to see one floor (the other floors are let) and, personally, I was disappointed not to get on to the roof to see the incredible 'egg topped pavilion' up close BUT as an added bonus we DID get to visit the ground floor of the neighbouring Casa Amatller which is currently being restored for visits. Here there was more beautiful stained glass including the most amazing garage doors you will ever see.

I loved this tour and would highly recommend it. We also look forward to visiting the rest of the restored Casa Amatller when we come back to Barcelona.
