So, as promised on Friday, today it's time for the post from the inside of Casa Milá.
|The inside patio|
Casa Milá is actually an apartment building, and people live there.
However, one apartment has been opened to the public as part of the museum, and you
get to see how it looked back when the apartments were finished. Gaudí also designed furniture.
Although you can't really appreciate it in the photos, there are no real edges or corners in this apartment. Even the walls are rounded. That was one of the things characterizing Gaudís work.
The loft is also a big exhibition with lots of info on Gaudí and his other work as well.

And as if this wasn't enough, you get to access the roof terrace! I have a thing for roof terraces, I love them. (Especially this one, although this one is not at all bad either!) But the one at Casa Milá is very special. Not just are the views spectacular, but the roof is decorated in such a cool way.
A chimney, decorated with broken glass bottles!
And the roof is not a bad place to see the sunset! In the summer there were jazz concerts up here. I didn't get to go, but I imagine it must be a wonderful setting for an evening concert!
(I have previously written about other works of Gaudí, such as La Sagrada Familia, and Parque Guell.)
Casa Milá is located at Passeig de Gracia 92,
just a short walk from Plaza Catalunya.
