La Pedrera


The image of Barcelona is closely associated with that of the architect Antoni Gaudí. The discovery of his work is one of the principle objectives of many visitors to the city. La Pedrera (Passeig de Gràcia, 92) is, perhaps, the most suitable starting point for the circuit of Gaudì's Barcelona. This residential building (currently property of a cultural foundation and used for exhibitions), lies on a corner of the Eixample and has three façades which, in reality, form one single frontage, defined by characteristic curved lines which evoke an improbable wave of stone, peppered by the twisted metal rails of the balconies.
