Witch Scarers, La Pedrera, Barcelona, Spain

The many chimneys and air ducts on the roof of Casa Milà, better known as La Pedrera, are apparently known as ‘witch scarers’.  I guess if I was a witch I’d think twice about landing on this roof…

    • I’m not sure if it’s an official name or not, but I’ve seen a few references to them using this name, and it’s such a cool name I’m going to run with it 🙂 It’s a pretty great building, although I think I preferred the interior of Casa Batlló.

  1. I was trying to figure out what kind of sculptures or statues and then I read your description… I would’ve never guess — chimneys. Looks like Santa would have difficult time going down one those. 😉
