Today we go into Casa Milà, one of the best works from architect Antoni Gaudí, that in conjunction with Sagrada Familia and Casa Batlló are the best architectural examples from catalan modernism.
Casa Milà was commissioned by Pere Milà i Camps and his wife Roser Segimon i Artells. Antoni Gaudí leaded the project, building a house using shapes and surfaces inspired by nature. The building itself looks like a living organism. It is located at the famous Paseo de Gracia in Barcelona.
Inside the building we can quickly notice shapes inspired in nature and living beings.
One of the patios inside the building.
Casa Milà receives about a million visitors each year. Many of these tourists come from very far away countries!
One of the key elements of Casa Milà are the chimneys and vents on the roof. Some of the designs look like soldier helmets.
View of the patio from the top!
Here you can see the design of the vents.
The design of the chimneys is unique and amazing. It is worth to visit this incredible place in my opinion.

As an interesting fact, the design of these chimneys inspired George Lucas when he shaped the Star Wars stormtrooper helmets.
Below there are some more pics of the chimneys and other elements at the roof of Casa Milà.

Going down from the roof we get to the attic. It is built using an arc structure that provides a wide diaphanous space. Also, the attic isolates the rest of the house from the extreme temperatures of the summer and winter.

Going down to the next level we find the main floor, that contains a lot of elements from the Twentieth Century.
