The Casa Milà is more commonly known as the Pedrera ("the stone quarry"), a name which has stuck since the time it was being built (1906-1912), one supposes because that is what it must have looked like at the time.

It's on all the Barcelona postcards, and the chances are that it's on your digital camera if you are here. But don't just stand outside and gawp — come on inside and have a look round.

We'll be going today on this week's social program: why not join us and come along…?
