Casa Milà

Casa Milà, popularly known by the name of La Pedrera (The Quarry), is a modern style building built in the beginning of the 20th century and designed by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí. Nowadays, part of the building is open to the public for guided tours.
The main facade was built with natural stone, situated at the number 92 of the Passeig de Gràcia, Barcelona, Spain. At first glance, our eyes are drawn towards the balconies made from wrought iron whose shape mimics rising vines. In total, the building has five floors, an attic, a terrace and several courtyards.
