The La Pedrera or Cas Mila as some people would christen it is an imposing corner structure in the post Passeig de Gracia street in Barcelona. Since we were living literally minutes away from it we had to give this a proper visit. This is one of the last civil projects that Gaudi designed before hiding away in the Sagrad Familia.
It is filled with numerous spectacular design elements that is both enriching and bewildering. I primarily fell in love with the abstract iron work that decorates most of the terrace. Imagine my surprise when I learned that it was made from recycled scrap metal. Each wrought iron metal work is different although following the same pattern of thought.
I found the entire experience quite charming as they had this replicas of how the apartments would look like from decades back. My favourite area was the roof deck as you can see how Gaudi’s creative imagination reached a fever pitch on how he designed the chimneys. One of which was decorated using champagne bottles! I loved that.
When is Barcelona complete the Gaudi experience by coming here and see how to this very day genius is still celebrated and enjoyed.
