Pedrera of Barcelona
La Casa Milà (popularly known as La Pedrera) is one of the masterpieces of the architect Antoni Gaudí. The Pedrera was built between the years 1906 and 1910. Located in Eixample, the modernist style house was constucted for the marriage between Pere Milà i Camps and Roser Segimon i Artells.
The innovative building is a typical Gaudinian piece, in which all the lines are curved planes. Inspired by Nature, the facade is constructed of limestone, except the top, which is covered with white tiles evoking a mountain snowfall.
