Casa Milà, popularly known as ‘La Pedrera’, is one of the most famous and iconic buildings by the renowned architect Antonio Gaudí (1852–1926). This unique complex, constructed between 1906 and 1912 was originally despised by the residents of the affluent Passeig de Gracia and the nickname La Pedrera (meaning the Quarry) signaled their dislike of this ground-breaking design.
However over time it has grown to be one of the Barcelona's famous attractions for its unique style and in 1984 Casa Mila was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. Today it is the headquarters of Fundació Catalunya-La Pedrera and houses a popular cultural centre.
