Located in the Eixample district, where wealthy people used to live in Barcelona, Casa Milà
famous for being the last work of the most renowned Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi, before he started his famous unending work named La Sagrada Familia. From the outside, the undulating balconies constitute a serie of waves, and each balcony and niches are reflected off in a different, uniquely different style, which is like an indicator of the authenticity and conviction of the architect.
Barcelona is famous for many things, but perhaps the renowned Gaudi is one of the biggest names connected with the city. Of course, this is mainly down to his designs of the hugely imposing and very impressive Sagrada Familia, but that was not his only gift to the city of Barcelona. The Casa Milà is another building designed by the famous Gaudi himself, with construction beginning in 1906, and ending in 1912. Far from just being ‘another building’, the Casa Milà is one to make your jaw drop in terms of the detail and design. The name itself serves from the family for whom the building was designed, the Milà family. They lived on the main floor, and then rented out the rest. Today, Casa Milà remains one of the most interesting structures in Barcelona, and one of the greatest masterpieces of Gaudi’s work.
