Casa Mila Guide: Spend Less, Do More

Welcome to Casa Mila

Casa Mila, Esplugues de Llobregat, Spain 

Casa Mila is situated in Barcelona , Spain and is one of the city’s major attraction. 

Another of Gaudi's masterworks, Casa Mila, locally known as La Pedrera (Quarry in Catalan), caused consternation to local residents when it was unveiled in 1910. The residential building is characterised by its cavelike balconies and eerie chimneys that were nicknamed witch-scarers. They form one of the city's most wondrous sites especially in the later afternoon sun.

Located in Barcelona's Eixample district, the structure was originally built for Roger Segimon de Milà. It was to be a dedication to the Virgin Mary with her sculpture on the roof. However anti-church rebellions in 1909 led to a change in plans.
