We did a quick tour of the first floor which had a few exhibits on the history of the house. There are guided tours but we elected to pass. The building is not as remarkable and unique as Gaudi’s Barcelona buildings so I would actually...More

I really enjoyed my tour though this museum. I love Gaudi’s work, and they’ve done a lovely job of highlighting his genius and offering you a glimpse into the era. The building was badly renovated in the 50’s and mostly restored in the 90’s -...More

With the entry fee & proximity to closing we merely circled the building taking photographs. On this journey in the north of Spain, although mainly in the Basque country, we have been repeatedly disappointed by the lack of signage or audio-aids in English. Won't risk...More

Casa Botines has been extensively renovated and some interesting design features and offers a tour. While in Leon it should be seen but I found it only marginally interesting.

We did not expect such a comprehensive history of Gaudi and Casa Botines. The tour was in English and started at 5.30 and finished at 7pm. We were given an introduction for half an hour on the ground floor then taken by glass elevator to...More

If you are in Leon, it is worth taking a walk through the old city. This particular building is quite beautiful to look at.

Don’t miss the tour of this amazing structure, one of only three buildings Gaudí designed outside of Barcelona, it is very interesting. The guide is very knowledgeable about the building’s history and Gaudí.

From outside you can admire the impressive architecture and sit with the sculpture of Gaudi on the bench. We had wanted to do the full tour of the building, however this was not available in English.

When I visited there were 2 ticket options- €7 to see the exhibits on the ground floor and basement and €12 for those plus a guided tour of the rest of the building. I think the cheaper ticket option wouldn't really be worth the money....More
