With a facade full of fluidity and extravagant chimneys on the ceiling, Casa Milà, also known as La Pedrera, represents Gaudí's work at its best. The ornate interior is also the work of the great Catalan architect. Avoid the queues and access directly to this modernist masterpiece.
Gaudí designed Casa Milà for the wealthy businessman Pere Milà and his wife. It is the last residential building of the architect in Barcelona. For the enthusiasts of Gaudí it is a mandatory stop, since it is the only building in the city that offers a complete vision of the work of this genius of architecture.
With its 4,500 m2 divided into five floors, it is an absorbing experience. The Casa Milà has a museum, the reproduction of an apartment from the early twentieth century (El Pis de la Pedrera), an exhibition of Gaudí's work in the attic, and the large roof terrace, with its famous chimneys that they represent surrealist chess pieces.
Although the building is named after the family that commissioned its construction, it is better known as La Pedrera because of its resemblance to a quarry of open-cast mining.
