Less than 500 meters separate two of the greatest works of the great Catalan artist Antonio Gaudí: La Casa Batlló and La Pedrera. Both buildings are an excellent example of the Catalan modernism of that time. La Pedrera and La Casa Batlló were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site (in 1984 and 2005 respectively) for their exceptional universal value.
La Pedrera was built between 1906 and 1910 in the Ensanche of Barcelona. It was a project commissioned by a Catalan couple: Roser Segimon y Pedro Milá. It had more than 20 million visits since its opening in 1987 and it is currently in the TOP10 of the most visited monuments in Barcelona and some years it has even been in the TOP for all the Spanish Monuments.
The famous Casa Batlló is really a complete remodeling of a building which was already completely built. This work was made between 1904-1906 and it was during the naturalist stage of Gaudí, during this, the artist was inspired for his works in the organic forms of nature.
