Gaudi Trail, Barcelona: La Pedrera (Casa Milà)
Gaudi's Barcelona

La Pedrera

Image: Damian Corrigan
Further along Passeig de Gracia, on the right hand side this time, is La Pedrera (more formally called Casa Milà, but it is rarely called that today). Less colorful than Casa Batllo, La Pedrera is all undulating concrete and twisted iron balconies.

La Pedrera was intended as a residential building and indeed it has been used as that. There is an exhibition of one of these residential spaces.

Perhaps the best element of La Pedrera is what you can't see from this picture - the rooftop sculptures and chimneys.

Owned by Fundació Catalunya-La Pedrera, La Pedrera hosts art exhibitions and evening concerts. Entrance is around 17 euros for adults. You can make reservations at La Pedrera.
