The wide street is lined with old and decorative street lamps and the pavement is covered in Gaudí inspired stones.

It has a large sculpture of a dragon's tail on the roof and its façade is dotted with ornate balconies. La Pedrera has a sea theme running throughout. Its iconic spiral staircase can be seen on posters and postcards throughout Barcelona.
