Vivacious, ambitious, industrious: Barcelona is second to none

This cool, cosmopolitan metropolis is the bastion of Catalan nationalism and one of the greatest port cities on the Mediterranean. Barcelona’s distinct culture finds exuberant expression in its architecture – in the sinuous swirls of its Modernista buildings, in the other-worldly weirdness of Park Güell and in the soaring spires of the Sagrada Família. A stroll along the Rambla, Barcelona’s famed promenade, reveals a city of irrepressible energy and a proud and unique identity.

Among Gaudi’s most famous works. La Pedrera looks like it’s made of giant waves of stone and the terrace has chimneys shaped like soldier helmets from the middle ages.

Historic building designed by Antonio Gaudi

Stay.com Editors' Note

Featuring abstract sculptures and a roof terrace full of “scare-witches” chimney stacks, La Pedrera - Mila House (Casa Mila) offers a unique attraction for Barcelona visitors. Built for the prominent Mila family, the industrialist homeowner’s tastes are reflected in the eclectic structure.

The Mila House façade is made of large stones, and has large windows and balconies with elaborate wrought iron railings. The attic offers an exhibition called the Gaudi Space, demonstrating the architect’s inspirational use of space and light. With respect to nature, Gaudi often played up the strength of curves, also reflected in the Mila House design.
