Casa Mila (La Pedrera de Gaudi)

Attraction | "Casa Mila (or La Pedrera)"

Quote:
This huge palace is another masterpiece by Gaudì. It was built between 1906 and 1912. Its name, "La Pedrera", means the stone quarry. Casa Milà looks like a grey petrified wave. Its rooftop has many chimneys that seem like giant warriors.
