Casa Milà by Gaudi, Barcelona Photos

Casa Milà (aka La Pedrera) (1906-10) (Passeig de Gràcia 92) is an apartment building designed by Antoni Gaudí. It is called La Pedrera because it is said to resemble a stone quarry. While most of the structure is still residential, part of the building is run as a museum which includes the lobby, the roof (noted for its Star Wars like chimneys), the attic which reveals the arches supporting the roof plus displays about Gaudi, and an apartment restored to the Modernista or age of Art Nouveau.
