Elsewhere:  2009.05.18 Casa Mila in Barcelona

So, today a friend asked me about a beautiful glass dish, which got me talking about Gaudi, which led me to discover that I'd never posted these photos to flickr.  I think I had some kind of idea that there were too many, and I was going to edit them down.  Never did.

finally posted to flickr

Casa Milà, popularly known as ‘La Pedrera’ (the stone quarry), an ironic allusion to the resemblance of its façade to an open quarry, was constructed between 1906 and 1912 by Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926). For its uniqueness, artistic and heritage value have received major recognition and in 1984 was inscribed on UNESCO World Heritage List, for its exceptional universal value.
