If you're in any doubt that you'll have enough to do in Barcelona, you'll soon find out that Catalonia's dazzling capital has so much to offer the visitor. Let's start with Passeig de Gràcia, without doubt one of Barcelona's most famous avenues. This tree-lined thoroughfare connects Plaça de Catalunya and Diagonal. It's well known for its luxury stores - and world famous as the home of some of the most celebrated pieces of Catalan modernism. Most famous and best loved of all stands proudly at the corner of Provença Street: Casa Milà, also known as La Pedrera. You'll look and look again at Casa Milà's three curved and contorted facades with no less than 150 windows. As you lift your gaze, there's another unique sight: the spiralled and sculpted chimneys high on the undulating roof. There's more, so much more. La Pedrera - the nickname means "The Stone Quarry" in reference to its rough appearance - was built between 1906 and 1910 to the designs, considered outrageous at the time, of Antoni Gaudí. Now it's a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most visited attractions in Barcelona. The building was commissioned by Pere Milà, a flamboyant property developer who yearned for an extraordinary home. During your visit you'll discover for yourself the Milà family's original apartment, beautifully restored to its striking colours allowing you to see how wealthy Catalans lived in the early part of the 20th century. Upstairs in the attic, models and drawings reveal the secrets of the lengthy construction of La Pedrera, all 4,500 m²of it, spread over five floors. The biggest secret of all awaits on the roof, where those mysterious chimneys guard a huge terrace with a great view over Barcelona. As you look out you'll understand, if you haven't already, why Casa Milà is one of the greatest buildings in this great city.
