La Pedrera (Casa Milá):
- Brief description: La Pedrera (Catalan for "The Quarry") was the last great civil work Gaudí undertook before devoting himself completely to La Sagrada Família. The owner, Pere Milà Camps, had seen the Batlló House and was deeply impressed by its beauty. As a result, he commissioned Gaudí to build this magnificent house. Gaudí designed a fantastic home with vivid, undulating forms. Apart from the facade, its attic and terrace roof with strange chimneys and flues are particularly eye-catching. Gaudí conceived of buildings as if they were paintings. La Pedrera represents the Mediterranean Sea in the form of waves, while the chimneys are the helmets of lookouts attentive to the arrival of pirates and invaders. The inside of Casa Batlló is more impressive than the interior of La Pedrera. Given the high admission price for both visits, we recommend entering only Casa Batlló.
