La Pedrera: reasons to visit Gaudí’s last civil masterpiece
Built between 1906 and 1912, La Pedrera was declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco in the year 1984. Its stony, curved façade with hints of both light and shadow gives the building its unusual name – “La Pedrera” means stone quarry in English, capturing to a tee this building’s organic and rugged exterior.
La Pedrera was initially built by Gaudí as a residence for Pere Milà i Camps and his wife, Roser Segimon i Artells whose dream was to live in a house with the best location in Barcelona. Located in l’Eixample district, La Pedrera building also includes a block of flats with sixteen apartments, given that this district was rapidly expanding.
