Biomorphic mansion on the Passeig de Gracia
Built as a vast private residence for wealthy developer Pere Mila and his even-more-minted missus, Rosario Segimon, Casa Mila is Gaudi’s second most famous structure after La Sagrada Familia church.
The house’s cliff-like walls immediately earned it the nickname La Pedrera, or ‘The Quarry’, amongst locals; and, although some may have scoffed in the past, this rocky undulating facade has become one of the most recognisable anywhere in the world. Indeed it’s one of the seven UNESCO listed works by Gaudi in Barcelona.
It’s well worth the ticket admission to take a look inside the Casa Mila with its two beautiful internal courtyards, the reconstructed ‘La Pedrera apartment’ and – best of all – access to the rooftop with its surreal chimneys (typical Gaudi!) and views over Barcelona.
The house is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 6pm, and Saturdays and Sundays (plus holidays) from 10am to 2pm.
