Casa Mila is located in the famous “Illa de la Discordia” in the heart of Barcelona. It is one of the masterpieces of the architect Antoni Gaudí. Its wave-shaped walls and chimney-topped rooftops are all emblematic of the building and the city it calls home. Casa Mila can be visited day or night. Visits in the day typically start from the famous roof terrace. If you prefer to take a trip at night, you can take the “Secrets of Casa Mila” night tour to learn obscure and interesting facts about the structure.
It's worth visiting. The ticket contains Chinese electronic guide. This is Gaudi's last work (Saint Family Church is the last unfinished one) which is Gaudi's peak work. It has always continued his style of curve mosaic. From the pictures, we can't really feel the essence of Gaudi's works, the feeling of integration into nature, the details of life, let's stop. The people in this building are not only convenient and enjoyable, but also we still feel the advanced nature of the house after a hundred years. Gaudi's creation is really a genius work.
In the evening, I participated in the Chinese special session of the Spring Festival. The young ladies and sisters were very nice. The beautiful voice and sweet explanation were clear. It was very cold when I went out to watch the lighting performance on the roof in the evening. I suggest you wear an extra coat. Otherwise, you can not quietly enjoy the beautiful lighting show. Hope to have the opportunity to see other floors, hope to open as soon as possible.
Barcelona Gaudi's architectural works Mira's House, the fantastic construction style, everywhere is full of imagination, fantastic feeling. It's like being in another world. Add the elements of romance and art, perfect and incisive.
the most enchanting apartment building of Gaudi in Barcelona. I went on a whim to this place because it was around the corner from the Airbnb house I stayed in. I didn't knwo what to expect. I got there as the last tours were being let in. I paid about 15 Euros for my admission and found an English headphone set to guide me through. Some tourists and I crammed into the lift and got to the top level, where all of these photos come from. This apartment makes me think that visionary living is never understood well when it emerges but that it becomes something, over time, that people wish they had in their every day. I would love to live here. The views are stunning. It should be one of the first Gaudi destinations you visit in Barcelona. But go at dusk. The imagery it creates with the soft light and violet supernatural colors of Barcelona will captivate you.
Casa Milà is, arguably, the most impressive work of Gaudí! It is a remarkable architectural treasure built in the 1900th Century as a residential home, though adorned with religious symbols that reflect the artist’s faith. Elements such as ‘Our Lady of the Rosary’ along with the archangels St. Michael and St. Gabriel can be admired throughout. The city views from its rooftop are stunning. Currently, the landmark is open to visitors and is part of the UNESCO World Heritage sites.
I'm not the biggest fan of Gaudi's work, but I recognize art when I see it. And when it comes to living complexes, Casa Milà is unlike anything I've ever seen on this planet. Its impressiveness is immediately visible from its façade, but for a more in-depth look, you really ought to head inside.
La Pedrera is Gaudi's masterpiece. He designed the entire building and oversaw the construction. The walking tour is good and it also takes you up to the roof, which is an adventure in itself. The view is also great, as you can see the entire city and the Sagrada Familia just a few miles away.
When Casa Mila was first built the local press skewered Gaudi for his 'hideous' building. Today, La Pedrera (another name for the famous building), is iconic and world renowned. It is also rumored that the helmet heads on the rooftop inspired George Lucas' famous Darth Vader.
Casa Milà is an apartment complex designed by Guadí to have almost no angles. Everything is graceful curves and designed around a central open cylinder. The roof is a fancifully decorated with what you would swear are Lucas's inspiration for the stormtrooper helmets.
OK, it's an apartment building, but it's from Gaudi. The wrought iron balconies and the ceramic mosaics are interesting, but the main draw here is the funky rooftop. So climb up, walk around, and take pictures that will always remind you of Barcelona.
