Barcelona in the North East corner of Spain on the Mediterranean coast is an ideal vacational city break holiday destination. There are lots of cheap flights and hotel, bed and breakfast, motel plus villa accommodation. Renting a car is cheap and easy. It is a delightful Spanish city. It has elegant boulevards and attractive side streets,  A visit to Gaudi's architectural gems is a must. The Christopher Columbus waterfront has to be visited. Make sure you go to the Maritime Museum even if you do not like boats you have to see the splendid richly decorated Mediterranean giant oared galley warship. The Olympic village and the fort on top of the hill are an ideal place to spend an afternoon and take in the fantastic vista of Barcelona in font of you.

Gaudi’s Casa Mila, La Pedrera
On any holiday or city break trip to Barcelona, Spain you must visit to this amazing Gaudi designed building Casa Milà in English the ‘House of Milà’. Again like some of Gaudi’s other buildings it was designed with a lack of straight lines to emulate nature. The Casa Mila is famous for not having a straight edge. The entrance fee will let you take a tour of some of the rooms that have been preserved in the early 1900’s original décor and the roof. But the highlight is definitely the roof. I spent more than an hour there. The "sentinel" chimneys are very photogenic. Try to go there at the end of the day. Plan a visit to an hour before sunset so that you can take pictures and then to enjoy sit and enjoy the sun setting.

The Barcelona industrialist Pere Milà and his wife Commissioned the building Casa Milà to be built by Gaudí between 1906 and 1910. It is also called ‘the Quarry’, La Pedrera’ a name it gets from its rippling gray stone façade. The wavelike pattern of the stone facade is highlighted by the wrought iron balconies. Each Gaudi balcony is different from the others. The Casa Mila was left to fall apart, but UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Site in 1984 and the Caixa de Catalunya (a big bank in this region of Spain bought the building in 1986. After 10 years of restoration, it was finally opened to the public in 1996. it has quickly developed into one of the most important Gaudi cultural places in Barcelona. It is on 92 Passeig de Gracia. The nearest Metro stations are Passeig de Gràcia or Diagonal on the Metro lines L3, L5. The building is on a fashionable boulevard lined with small cafes and restaurants. Hotels and other accommodation are everywhere. Add our site to your 'Favorites' list now!
