PASSEIG DE GR└CIA - THE MODERNISM
......
In this boulevard, between the streets Consell de Cent and Aragˇ on the south-western side, stands the famous street block popularly known as l'illa de la disc˛rdia ('block of discord'), due to the contrast in the architecture of its buildings, all from the first decade of the 20th century.

The building at the seaward end of the block is the Lleˇ Morera house, by LluÝs DomŔnech i Montaner, in modernist floral style. There follow two buildings of a modernised Louis XV type, by Enric Sagnier, and the neo-Gothic Amatller house , with ornamentation of polychrome tiles, by Josep Puig i Cadafalch, followed by the Batllˇ house , with a mosaic fašade and a tiled roof, by Antoni GaudÝ.

A little further up the street, on the right-hand side on the corner with Carrer Provenša, there is the MilÓ house 'La Pedrera', designed by GaudÝ shortly after the termination of the Batllˇ house .

The originality of La Pedrera is not limited to the sculptural forms of its fašade, but also extends to the interior of the building.
