Photo of Gaudi and La Pedrera
Antoni Gaudí 1852 - 1926 



The image of Barcelona is closely associated with the architect and artist Antoni Gaudí. To discover his work is one of the main goals for many people visiting the city.

La Pedrera (Passeig de Gràcia, 92) is probably the appropriate starting point for the Gaudí "Ruta de Modernista" in Barcelona.

This residential building is located on a corner of Eixample, with its three facades angled in such a manner that it becomes a single facade. It is characterized by its wave-like mass of rough-chipped stone and the curved metal bars on the balconies.

After a very expensive restoration completed in 1995, La Pedrera is once again a magnificent sight. Not only from the outside but also indoors, for example, the colours of the stair well are restored to their original condition. Many of the apartments have also regained their former, modernist appearance.

The roof of the building contains one of its biggest surprises: a forest of chimneys and sculptures, which camouflage the entrance to the stair well and the building's water tank. The 'La Pedrera' really shows the greatness of Antonio Gaudí.

The attic was designed to represent the stomach of a giant sea monster. Today, there is an exhibition with photographs and videos where you can learn more about Gaudi's methods and logic.

Continue the tour, next stop: Casa Batllo

or jump directly to: La Sagrada Familia or Parc Güell

After you have had enough cava and wine, it might be nice to try a tasty beer. La Cerveteca is an amazing bar and the boys serve beers from all over the world and for a good price. If you are not sure which one to choose, they let you try first. It is fun and it is delicious. The bar is located right next to El Correos (the main post office)
