La Pedrera - Casa Milà

Casa Milà, better known as La Pedrera (Catalan for 'The Quarry'), is a building designed by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí and built in the years 1905–1907. It is located at 92, Passeig de Gràcia ('passeig' is Catalan for promenade or avenue) in the Eixample district of Barcelona, Catalonia. It was built for Roger Segimon de Milà. It is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site "Works of Antoni Gaudí".

If you are travelling to Barcelona between May and August, we strongly recommend to visit La Pedrera during the evening. In the summer season the roof of La Pedrera can be visited and once you get to the top you get welcomed with a glass of "cava" (Catalan champagne). Its a romantic experience in Barcelona and you will enjoy stuning views of Barcelona at night.

To complete a romantic holiday you can rent a penthouse apartment very close to La Pedrera.
