Photographer's Note

One of Gaudi's most famous creations is La Pedrera (the Quarry), located at 92 Passeig de GrÓcia in Barcelona. The building is also known as Casa MilÓ. It's built in Gaudi's famous (and wacky) "biomorphic" style giving much of it the appearance of a living organism.

For me, the roof of the building was the highlight. It has what's called the "Chimney Park" with all the chimneys taking the guise of strange sculptures which are quite difficult to define. These ones look like helmeted knights, while others resemble faces or twisted crosses.

The house is accessible for an entrance fee, which is more than worth it. This is one of Barcelona's treasures and is not to be missed.
