Next November 25th and December the 1st Casa Batlló will light up in colours for solidary reasons:  International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women and World AIDS Day

Casa Batlló lights up in purple to fight against women’s violence

On Saturday, November 25th takes place the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women declared by United Nations in 1999. This day is celebrated yearly with the purpose of inviting governments and organizations to promote activities to rise awareness of this problem.

This year, Casa Batlló wants to join again this initiative lighting up its facade in purple from 5:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. to show its support to the cause that spots a problem that is still present in our everyday society.

This revendication arose in 1981 from a feminist latin american movement that wanted to commemorate the date in which the three Mirabal sisters (also known as Butterflies) were assassined in the Dominican Republic by demand of the dictator Rafael Leónidas Trujillo.

Come this Saturday, take a picture of our purple facade and share it on Social Media with the hashtag #CasaBatllo

We will also light up in red against AIDS

On December the 1st takes place the World AIDS Day, and for sixth year, Casa Batlló has joined the fight lighting up in red its facade. From 5:30 p.m. and until 01.00 p.m. you can come to the House and share a picture of our red facade in your Social Media with the hashtag #CasaBatllo 

The red colour symbolizes the fight against this illness that is diagnosed every day to 9-10 people in Spain, and that provokes the death of a million others each year. For this illness to disappear, the AIDS fighting Foundation rises funds in its website hablemosdelsida.com to make the investigation go further.

We will be waiting for you on November 25th and December 1st!
