La Pedrera // Casa Mila

Another beautiful place we visited during our honeymoon in Barcelona
was Casa Mila or La Pedrera . It was on top of my "must see" list in Barcelona,
 second after Basílica de la Sagrada Família  - I will write about it too in the next
blog post, so stay close. The work of Gaudí on the rooftop of La Pedrera is just pure 
art! Amazing design taken to a whole other level, not to mention the views from 
the roof are breath-taking!

O alta locatie superba pe care am visitat-o in luna de miere in Barcelona a fost 
Casa Mila/La Pedrera. Era chiar pe locul 2 in topul locurilor pe care vroiam neaparat
 sa le vizitez , dupa Sagrada Familia! Despre care o sa si scriu intr-un post viitor.
Munca lui Gaudí  la acoperisul cladirii este o adevarata opera de arta!
Modernismul atinge apogeul iar designul e incredibil!
De privelistile de pe acoperis nici nu mai e nevoie sa mentionez!

On the rooftop there are:

- six skylights/staircase exits 
(four of which were covered with broken pottery and 
some that ended in a double cross typical of Gaudí)

- 28 chimneys 
in several groupings, some twisted so that the smoke came out better

- four cupulins (domes) that discharged to the facade. 

- the staircases also house the water tanks
some of these are snail-shaped

One of the chimneys was topped with glass pieces 
– it was said that Gaudí did that the day after the inauguration of the building,
 taking advantage of the empty bottles from the party.  

Far away in the distance you can spot the gorgeous
Sagrada Familia
