Maison Milá - La Pedrera

Antoni Gaudí, l'architecte qui a construit ce joyau du modernisme catalan, a voulu que la façade reflète ses idées romantiques et anti-classiques sur le design. Elle a été construite pour la famille Milà entre 1906 et 1910. Ni la famille ni le public ont été très impressionné, et a été surnommé La Pedrera (carrière de pierre) comme une insulte. C'est seulement plus tard, en 1984 qu'elle a remporté un grand succès lorsque l'UNESCO l'a déclaré Site du Patrimoine Mondial. Maintenant de renommée internationale, La Pedrera ou la Casa Milà est un excellent exemple de l'architecture civile de Gaudi, elle est esthétiquement intéressante et unique, ainsi que remarquablement pratique.
