Things you need to know:

  • Casa Mila is a unique looking modernista apartment building designed by Gaudí­ that resembles no other building in the world. There are no straight walls or right angles inside the premises
  • It was built for a wealthy and socially active couple (Rosario Segimon and Pere Mila) as a show of wealth and extravagance. Today many of its apartments are private homes
  • The building was ridiculed in its time and earned a nickname, La Pedrera (The Quarry). The nickname stems from its stony, fortress-like appearance
  • The building gives home to a museum dedicated to Gaudí­'s works (Espai Gaudí­)
  • It houses a furnished Modernista flat (El Pis de La Pedrera) that exemplifies a typical bourgeois flat of late 19th-century Barcelona
  • It is famous for its chimneys that resemble medieval warriors as part of a surreal rooftop sculpture park
  • The building is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site "Works of Antoni Gaudí­"

What to do there:

  • Take a look at the building from outside
  • Visit Espai Gaudí­, a museum dedicated to Gaudí­'s works
