Gaudi’s Top 3 Barcelona Buildings
Casa Milà or La Pedrera
This building is more sculpture than a building, its façade is inspired by nature itself, exploring the irregularities of natural environments. The building is one of UNESCO World Heritage since 1984.
Casa Milà was one of Gaudi’s main residential buildings, and one of the most creative in the architectural world.

Chic apartment in Barcelona B118
This one bedroom apartment is right on the famous Passeig de Gracia (roughly translated, Passage of Grace), the most important and exclusive street in all of Barcelona where many very famous buildings are located such as Gaudi’s La Pedrera and the Casa Batlló.
It was highly criticized when it was being built by the city for its unique design in 1904. Even though this wasn’t built from scratch by Gaudi, it was a complete restoration of a house built in 1877. Like all of Gaudi’s work, this can be catalogued as Modernisme and as mentioned before Nouveau Art.
As you can see, Gaudi avoids straight lines in all of his designs and Casa Batlló is no exception.

The apartment is marvellously spacious with over 220 m2 for four double bedrooms, three bathrooms, a spacious living room/dining room area with view of the Passeig de Gracia street and neighbouring building Casa Batlló, balcony, office space and fully equipped kitchen.
La Sagrada Familia
La Basilica has been in construction since 1892, and it’s not expected to be finished by 2030. La Sagrada Familia literally translates to “Holy family”. Pope Benedict XVI even consecrated the church in 2010! The church was built to be seen from all over Barcelona, the way it was constructed with glass mosaics at its highest points that reflects the sun or moonlight to act as beacons.
