Catedral de São Basílio

Uma coleção fascinante de tons vívidos e cúpulas, a Catedral de São Basílio ergue-se no extremo sul da Praça Vermelha, um dos monumentos arquitetônicos mais reconhecidos da Rússia. Originalmente construída entre 1555 e 1561 para comemorar a vitória de Ivan IV em Kazan, a catedral era uma visão em pedra branca com cúpulas douradas. As cores e padrões não foram adicionados até o século XVII. Pouco se sabe sobre os arquitetos deste majestoso edifício e, por um tempo, a lenda dizia que Ivan IV cegou a dupla para evitar que replicassem o projeto. Originalmente composta por nove capelas, uma décima foi acrescentada alguns anos depois onde se encontra o túmulo de São Basílio. Embora oficialmente chamada de Catedral da Intercessão, o apelido mais popular desta joia histórica deriva disso. Hoje, a Catedral de São Basílio é um museu que atrai multidões de visitantes todos os anos, inspirando admiração em todos aqueles que a observam.

Casa Milà

Antoni Gaudí, the architect who built this jewel of Catalan modernism, wanted the facade to reflect his romantic and anti-classical ideas about design. It was built for the Milà family between 1906 and 1910. Neither the family nor the public were much impressed, and it was dubbed La Pedrera (stone quarry) as an insult. Only later in 1984 did it win great acclaim when the UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Site. Now internationally celebrated, Casa Milà is a prime example of Gaudí's civil architecture; it is aesthetically interesting and unique as well as outstandingly practical.

No interior, aos 50 apartamentos foram instalados desconcertantes pisos ondulatórios de terracota .
