La Pedrera (1905), also known as Casa Mila, can be found at No 92 Passeig de Gràcia at the junction with Carrer Provenca. The word "Pedrera" means "Quarry" however the original name of the house was Casa Milà. This is another masterpiece by Antoni Gaudí and was designed as a fashionable home to the wealthy Milà family. The name Pedrera was used locally to describe the building because of its stone like appearance and the name stuck.

La Pedrera was constructed to house apartments and offices however the owner had difficulty renting the apartments because prospective tenants thought they would have problems furnishing the rooms as they were irregularly shaped.
La Pedrera is now a museum and is open to the public for viewing and tours.
