Casa Milà (La Pedrera)

Highly recommended
More commonly known as "La Pedrera", this building, whose façade evokes the movement of the sea, is one of Gaudí's finest achievements. A guided tour of the rooftops provides matchless views over Barcelona, as well as of the chimneys and air vents with their unique and somewhat unsettling fairy-tale shapes. Inside, Espai Gaudí illustrates the life and work of the artist while El Pis provides an insight into life in a nobleman's home in the early 20C.
