Casa Milà, popularly known as ‘La Pedrera', is a most unusual building, constructed between 1906 and 1912 by the architect Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926). The Casa Milà triggers much enthusiasm today, but when it was built, the members of Catalan society were horrified when they saw it; they weren't ready for Gaudí's visionary talent. They compared it to a melting cake or a stone quarry, hence its nickname, "La Pedrera", the Catalan word for quarry.
