About
Casa Mila, popularly known as La Pedrera, is a most unusual building, constructed between 1906 and 1912 by the architect Antoni Gaudí (1852–1926) and declared UNESCO World Heritage in 1984. Today it is the headquarters of Fundacio Catalunya La Pedrera and houses a cultural centre that is a reference point in Barcelona for the range of activities it organises and the different spaces for exhibitions and other public uses it contains. A visit to La Pedrera, landmark building and container, gives us a better understanding and appreciation of architecture and transports us to the period when Antoni Gaudi lived.

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.

We spent a wonderful evening in the attic area and on the roof of La Pedrera for a tour and some history followed by an amazing light and sound show. Cava and cookies completed a recommended experience.

Bought tickets at the gate with no wait time on a Wednesday. Learned a lot about Gaudi and his methods during the tour.

Very interesting architecture. Really enjoyed the attic and rooftop. The audioguide was good and very helpful. It was a little highly priced. Spent the afternoon visiting Casa Mila and taking Rick Steve's Exiample Walk.

I had a delightful rest break + meal with a new-found friend met on the hop-on/-off bus – I would go back again just to enjoy the cafe and scenery!

This is a "Must See" in Barcelon if you appreciate great architecture. Easily accessible via public transportation.

Exceptional. I didnt expect a free audio guide with the visit. The rooftop had such magnificent views. I never made it to the Sagrada Familia but at least I got to get a birds eye view of it.

It was pretty cool to get up close and personal with the rooftop guardians. I never would have known what those spirals were for without the tour.

I thought the price was kind of high for what you got, but I'm glad I went.

What an experience!! This building and the tour components are all worth seeing. The Attic and the rooftop were the highlights. The tour is fascinating and shows much of where Gaudi found much of his inspiration and clever building techniques. The audio guide was one of the best we have experienced…. Not too much info and detail and not too little either. Worth spending the extra money on.

from the entrance gates to the chimney stacks on the roof, every consideration is given to form and function. Gaudi was far beyond his years!

Look, this place is incredible. The rooftop guardians are extraordinary. It's definitely worth a visit. We went at night, when they do a light show showering the guardians with all manner of stuff. Unfortunately, that added an artificiality for me, but most seemed to like it. At the end, there was a nice immersive trip into Gaudi's mind that was pretty mind-blowing.

Price of the ticket is too high just to have a tour in one floor and the terrace. Nothing interesting to see inside. Stay outside and take photos of the fabulous exterior.

We regret your disappointment with the visit of Casa Milà. In order to avoid the queue we recommend to buy the tickets on-line. We want to inform that La Pedrera is the only exhibition space in Barcelona devoted to all Gaudí’s work. In total you can visit 4,500 m2 divided between five floors of the building, including the Warrior Rooftop, the Whale Attic, The Tenants’ Apartment, the Flower and the Butterfly Courtyards and the Milà Family’s Apartment (former residence of the Milà family and now a temporary Exhibition Hall). We also want to inform you that La Pedrera, as part of Catalunya La Pedrera Foundation, assigns the proceeds of the ticket entrance to social, environmental, educational and cultural projects. Sincerely,
