  Casa Mila

Another one of Gaudi's famous works, this is a great place to visit. La Pedrera was designed for Pere Mila and his wife. At the same time, Gaudi built two blocks of apartments like this one. This building is unique as the structure rests on pillars instead of using weight-bearing walls...an innovative and unique aspect of its time.

Entrance into this building includes viewing one of the apartments, viewing the attic which houses Gaudi historical facts and also the rooftop, which is definitely a sight to see. The view from the top itself is worth the trip.
