La Pedrera

Completed in 1910, this fantastic, undulating apartment block, with its out-of-this-world roof and delicate wrought ironwork, is one of the most emblematic of all Gaudí’s works. La Pedrera (the Stone Quarry), also known as Casa Milà, was Gaudí’s last great civic work before he dedicated the rest of his life to the Sagrada Família. Restored to its former glory in 1996 after years of decay, La Pedrera now contains a museum dedicated to the architect, the exhibition centre of the Caixa de Catalunya, a furnished museum apartment, as well as private residences. What makes La Pedrera so magical is that every last detail, from door knobs to light fittings, bears the hallmark of Gaudí’s visionary genius.
