Also known as “Casa Milá”, La Pedrera is one of the most famous creations of Antonio Gaudi built as a request of a very relevant person of that time (Pere Milà Camps). Located in one of the major arterys of Barcelona (Paseo de Gracia), the view from the roof shows Paseo de Gracia with great beauty.
La Pedrera was built between 1906 and 1912 and it has 6 floors organized around two courtyards, a basement, attic and roof (1.835 sqm). The main objective was to use the building’s main floor for Mr. Milà’s residence and the rest rented, which it was common at the time. The floors were designed by Gaudí in such a way that could easily conform to the needs of tenants, the decoration of these apartments has remained with the appearance of that time and they can be seen when visiting la Pedrera.
The roof of the building is very distinctive and original, there are the outputs of stairs, chimneys and ventilation towers, which by their original shapes and innovative design create a real garden outdoor sculptures. In summer time, the roof hosts live jazz performances (from thursday to saturday), an impressive opportunity to discover Gaudí’s most magical space. Views of the city, music and a glass of cava (25€). For more information concerning this events click here.
