Casa Mila - La Pedrera
Barcelona Travel Blog› entry 4 of 15 › view all entries
Casa Mila, best known as La Pedrera, one of Gaudi's buildings made for eternity and one of the most complete example of Gaudi’s concept of Nature. This was just one of the reasons not to miss this in Barsa. Under the sunshine facade looked like flowing through the space, the most because of the line like a wave which follow the movement of the whole building. In the yard the same feeling, soft lines without sharp corners, and I entered with curiosity what’s the next. Flat which is aloud for visit was also nice and reflected scene of some old times, the way of living from the beginning of 20th century (build of La Pedrera started in 1905. and finished 1910.). But for sure I wasn’t prepared for the roof. I saw photos of my friends when they were in Barsa and how unique is the roof, read in the books … but meeting “face to face” was something quite different for me.
So, La Pedrera is absolutely unique, as in architectural way, also with that special energy spreading around, and be sure you can’t be “stone” among all those creatures, maybe not on the way as it influenced on me :o) … but you will tell me your story when you get there :o)
