Started in 1906, Casa Milá threw up lots of controversy and critisism by the time Guadi handed over the keys in 1912. Nicknamed by locals as ‘La Pedrera’ (the quarry) the building annoyed the local council (who demanded many changes), the neighbours (who thought it lowered the value of nearby houses) and the construction community (who just thought the whole thing was ugly and bonkers).
Not exactly sage advice, but get there as early as you can. The roof gets horribly busy during the peak times.
