Next stop on our last day in Barcelona was La Pedrera, another Gaudi masterpiece. La Pedrera, also known as Casa Mila, was built between 1905 and 1910 and is known for its rooftop structures. Unlike any piece of architecture in the world, the exterior reminds one of waves in an ocean. Iron balustrades look like seaweed caught in these waves.
The apartments here are still mainly private homes. The interior is reminiscent of being underwater with blue jewel-like walls and fish head-like light fixtures.
The most outstanding part of this building is its rooftop. Mosaic chimneys and statues of soldiers litter the rooftop of Casa Mila.
And finally one last detail shot of the rose detail:
And so our final day in Barcelona draws to a close. One day I hope to travel back here to see more of this beautiful city. Until that day the memories of great people and good food will keep me company.
