|Barcelona, Spain (28 August 2005 & 31 August 2005)|

The rocky ridge with a magnificent prospect of Barcelona and the Mediterranean, was bought in 1895 by Gaudiís rich patrol, Eusebi GŁell, with the idea of developing an English-style garden. The project flopped; only three of the proposed 60 houses were built. The area was taken over by the city council as a park in 1923.||Casa Milŗ, also known as La Pedrera, the quarry, is an apartment building situated at Passeig de Grŗcia No. 92. An example of Gaudiís civil architecture, it was built between 1906 and 1910 for the Mila family.|
|The Casa Batllo, forms part of Manzana del la DiscÚrdia. Situated at Passeig de Grŗcia No. 43 it reflects the hand of Gaudi, who remodelled the house in 1906. It is said to represent the triumph of St. George over the dragon with its heaving roof (the dragonís back), scaly skin of mosaic tiles, windows (the bones of victims), and tower (the saintís lance).||Barcelona Port at Dawn||The Spanish Coastline|
