Monument / Landmark
“Casa Milà, popularly known as La Pedrera (meaning “stone quarry” in Catalan), is Antoni Gaudí’s last civil work, which he started in 1906 and finished in 1912. Although Antoni Gaudí was particularly well known for his modernist phase, this work is considered “modern”. Included in the World Heritage List in 1984, along with Park Güell and Palau Güell, it was one of the first places of the industrial era to be added to the list of the most exceptional sites in the world. Its nickname, “La Pedrera”, refers to its external appearance, where stone has been used as a key material for the design of the façade and the balconies.”

“Large area with you can spend hours in! Starting with the Arc de Triomf and then walking through to the lovely avenue with palm trees on each side. Entering the park you have smaller parks and a lake to go paddling in full of ducks! At the far end you have the Barcelona Zoo. Also plenty of musicians and artists around!”

Point of Interest
“Casa Batlló is a building designed by the architect Antoni Gaudí, the highest representative of Catalan modernism. It is a comprehensive remodeling of a previously existing building on the site, the work of Emilio Sala Cortés. It is located at number 43 of Passeig de Gracia in Barcelona, the wide avenue that runs through the Ensanche district (Eixample), in the so-called Manzana de la discordia, because it houses, in addition to this building, other works by modernist architects: the Amatller house, which borders Gaudí's, the work of Josep Puig i Cadafalch; the Lleó Morera House, the work of Lluís Domènech i Montaner; the Casa Mulleras, by Enric Sagnier; and the Casa Josefina Bonet, by Marceliano Coquillat. The construction was carried out between the years 1904 and 1906”

“One of the last modernist buildings in Barcelona which reveals the clear influence of Gaudí in the use of the curve. The rounded corner of the building is surmounted by a slender turret. Another outstanding element is the protruding balcony with columns and large windows. Inside the building there is a lavishly decorated lobby and staircase.”
