Casa Mila was Antonio Gaudi’s last residential building before he decided to focus all his energy on Sagrada Familia.
Gaudi built it between 1906 and 1912, right in the center of Barcelona.
More than a million tourists visit Casa Mila every year.
Its actual name was Casa Mila, after the owners of the house. However, because of its distinct looks, the locals named it ‘La Pedrera’ which means ‘stone quarry’ in Spanish.
