Another one of Gaudi's masterpieces, Casa Mila, otherwise known as La Pedrera, is one of Gaudi's most well known creations and is situated on Passeig de Gracia, just a stone's throw from Casa Batllo. Constructed between 1905-1912, from the outside La Pedrera looks like it is made up of skulls. Architecturally however, it is considered to be incredibly innovative as its facade is self-supporting. It also has underground parking and separate lifts and stairs for the owners and servants. Something that many people don't know, is that the structures on the roof were actually what inspired George Lucas' Storm Troopers for his Star Wars series. This might not seem romantic, but it's so stunning inside and the clincher is the roof where you can see the city and find alone time amongst Gaudi's Chimney's.
