Casa Battló, Barcelona / Spain
Our hearts raced as soon as we realised that Casa Battló´s website had inserted a complete virtual tour! We really felt the atmosphere of being there!
But first of all, a few words about this modern wonder:
Casa Batlló is a marvelous masterpiece of Antoni Gaudí! A trip to the fantastic world created by the modernist and naturalist architect who lived ‘ahead of his time’.
It is an UNESCO World Heritage site and a legend of architecture and design. Casa Battló was fully reformed according to Gaudí´s Project, between 1904 and 1906. At present, it is an icon in Barcelona, a must-see for those who want to discover Gaudí’s spectacularly creative works.
Casa Battló, here we go! If you don’t know it, you will be amazed! If you have already had the opportunity to be there, you will remember every detail and fall in love with this work of art again!
Anne Frank House, Amsterdam / Netherlands
Is there anyone who has never heard about Anne Frank?… The Jewish girl whose dreams were interrupted by such barbarism, is still touching thousands of people´s hearts by her diary translated into more than 70 languages.
Walking through those rooms where the girl, her family and friends took refuge, brings us an uncomfortable feeling of disbelief and compassion. We challenge someone not to get emotional when walking through those rooms and tracing little Anne’s steps, who could only move at night, in order to avoid being discovered by the Nazis…
Take a deep breath and come on!
Museu Casa de Portinari, Brodowski / Brazil
Candido Portinari’s former residence in Brodowski (in São Paulo State) is now ‘Casa de Portinari’ Museum.
It was in this delightful lighted house where Candido Portinari, one of the main names of Modernism and whose works have achieved international renown, has carried out his experiments with mural paintings and has deepened his technique over the years.
Get to know the house and the work of this artist who portrayed social issues and Brazilian workers so well.
Mozarts Geburthaus, Salzburg / Austria
A unique emotion takes hold of those who arrive at the house in which Wolfgang Amadé Mozart was born on the January 27, 1756.
In the three-storey exhibition, now one of the most frequently visited museums in the world, the visitors and admirors learn details about Mozart’s life – the circumstances in which he grew up, when he began to play music, his relationship with his family, his passion for opera, and much more.
Then, watch a movie session – Amadeus, available on streaming programs.
The museum does not offer a virtual tour, but a very interesting guide (POCKET GUIDE)!
La Casa Azul – Frida Kahlo, Cidade do México / Mexico
Frida Kahlo´s house was made into a museum in 1958, four years after her death. Today it is one of the most popular museums in Mexico City.
Popularly known as the Casa Azul (the ‘Blue House’), it shows the artist’s daily life, preserving the personal objects that reveal the private universe of Latin America’s most celebrated woman artist.
If you admire this woman who became a symbol of the female fortress and who said “Why do I need feet when I have wings to fly”, come and see her home!
Museu Mazzaropi, Taubaté / Brasil
The museum reveres Amácio Mazzaropi, a very successful Brazilian filmaker, who acted between 1950-1970.

The museum’s facilities are next to the cozy Hotel Fazenda Mazzaropi, formerly owned by the filmmaker – the studios of PAM Filmes. As one the hotel facilities, there´s the house of Jeca Tatu, his main character.
Bônus! Fallingwater – Frank Lloyd Wright, Pensilvania / United States
Our last visit today is not really a virtual tour, but a 3D video created by Cristóbal Vila, which shows, from an unprecedented perspective, the incredible Fallingwater, a masterpiece created by Frank Lloyd Wright.
It was built in 1935 and has always been widely studied by architecture students from all over the world and its contemporaneity is an unanimity among architects.
This UNESCO World Heritage site is sensational!
