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.
How to get there

Great Evening Tour
Myself & my Daughter went to the evening tour, it lasted just over an hour. Robert was our guide, he was very informative & gave us a great time. The light show on the roof was brilliant & when you came back down you were greeted with either a glass of cava, orange juice or water. Well worth doing

the rooftop!
Sep 2021
I gave 4 points because only 1 floor is open to the public besides the rooftop. Gaudi's design is unique and practical.

Very disappointed…..
Oct 2021
I booked this for my partner and I, but unfortunately on the morning we had arranged to go was spent at the police station due to my handbag being stolen with all my money, phone, and everything else that lives in a woman’s bag…it was devastating! I appreciate you cannot get your money back but due to these terrible circumstance thought they might let us go the next day! but to no avail! Apparently there are no circumstances where they will ever help you out . No show, too bad you lose!

An insight into Gaudi's mind
Oct 2021
Gaudi enjoyed having nature in his surroundings. He designed buildings and play areas with lots of natural light. His apartment house "La Pedrera" explored many facets of having rooms and areas lighted with natural light with windows and open areas. The museum is full of older furniture to show how people actually used his ideas in their own lives. Very fascinating visit.

Thanks for sharing your useful comments about the visit to La Pedrera. A visit to this building is interesting for those who are into architecture, art, Modernisme or Gaudí, as well as for those who are not. As you said, with La Pedrera by day visit you do a freely visit with an audio guide (included in the ticket price) so you can spend as much time as you want in each area, depending on your interests. A total of 4,500 m2 can be visited, spread over five floors: Butterfly and Flower Courtyard, Whale Attic (Gaudí Exhibition), Tenants’ Apartment, Warrior Rooftop and the Milà Family’s Apartment (Art Exhibition). The only areas that cannot be visited are the private homes and offices that remain in the building. Sincerely,

Wonderful insight into Gaudi's inventive mind!
Oct 2021
We have visited Barcelona many times and passed by La Pedrera a lot, but this time we decided to take a tour. It was well worth it! We were also very lucky as we visited on October 12th, Spain's National Day. There was a parade on Passeig Gracia which we saw part of from the rooftop of La Pedrera! What a treat! The building itself is full of wonderful hundred-year old pieces and shows what an inventive mind Gaudi had. He used so many areas of natural light and life in a concrete structure. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

genius architect
Nov 2020
Another artist by the genius architect Gaudi. After seeing the sagrada familia Church, we walked about twenty minutes through the beautiful streets of Barcelona and reached this beautiful building. When you look at the facade of the building, it is as if you are looking at the rough sea! The movement of something strange that you see in this building! On the ground floor of this building is a cafe where sitting and drinking a cup of coffee in this building with unique architecture is an interesting experience!

Thanks for taking the time to share your opinion about Casa Milà. We are really glad that you find it worth to visit. This building, considered as a “petrified wave” or a “giant sculpture” is interesting for those who are into architecture, art, Modernisme or Gaudí, as well as for those who are not. Sincerely,

Unique house
Sep 2021
Gaudi is worth exploring, including this very unique house. Nothing compares to it, except perhaps another Gaudi house. It was not my favorite house, but I am so glad that I went.

Save Your Money - Get a tour of Casa Batllo instead! :-)
Oct 2021
The tour began at 8:40pm and was not really one of the best experiences we had in Barcelona. We started in the main entryway where we spent about 15 minutes listening to the history of Casa Mila. The guide then took us up the servants' stairs to the attic where we toured a few items that guided Gaudi's design and influenced his work. It really was not very engaging at all and was also very warm in the attic the evening that we toured.

We finally were taken to the roof where the guide started a digital/music presentation that was projected on the chimney towers on the roof of Casa Mila. We stayed for about 8 minutes of the 15 minute presentation. The 'music' was really along the lines of nature sounds, whale songs, and electronic keyboards - kind of abstract. The projections were pictures of nature - again paying homage to Gaudi's design influence.

A recommendation: save your money on this one and spend it on a tour of Casa Batllo. You'll have a much better experience and see more of Gaudi's actual work as a designer/architect.

We regret that your visit in La Pedrera did not achieve your expectations. The Night Experience wants to be a night-time experience more than a common guided tour. That’s why the tour includes projections, the speech of a local guide and a glass of cava at the end. La Pedrera was built at the beginning of the XXth century and it has 8 floors. Nowadays we have 2 lifts that allow visitors to reach the roof top during the day and during the night. Even if we recommend to use the service stairs because every single corner of the house is worth to be seen, visitors are also welcome to use the lift if they prefer it. We work hard so that visitors spend a nice time while visiting La Pedrera and we regret once again that the tour was not what you were expecting for and we hope to see you again in La Pedrera. Best regards.

A must see for Gaudi fans!
Oct 2021
We love visiting Casa Mila, as we do all of Gaudi's masterpieces! The rooftop and elaborate chimneys are a highlight for us (plus nice views), but the interior is very interesting as well particularly the architecture of the attic. Sure, you could just sip on a glass of wine at a nearby spot and appreciate the facade, which is beautiful, but it's definitely worth touring the building. Hard to believe there's actually 3 families still living there!

Expensive, dont waste your money, guided tour not worth the money, information gained minimal
Oct 2021
We booked the La Pedrera night experience s that is the only one with a guided tour. We had already visited all the other Gaudi buildings and had guided tours, which all lasted over 1 hour and then you could then wander around afterwards to continue looking at the buildings.
The La Pedrera guided tour lasted about 20 minutes, then you were directed to the roof to see the light show (we could see the light show free every night from the apartment we were staying in).
The guided tour consisted of a very short video on the ground entrance area then asked to walk up the step (no warning how many steps you had to go up) or get the lift to the attic, most people walked p the steps, some people almost didn’t make it as the guide did not warn how many steps up it was, I guess about 5 or 6 floors. In the attic we were then told this is where the servants put the washing out to dry, shown a couple of models of the building then shown onto the roof for the 15 minute light show.
The guide obviously rushed through the talk in the attic as he had to wait a long time for some people to walk up the steps and you got the feeling he had to finish as he had then to do another night tour.

We regret that the tour did not achieve your expectations. We work hard so that visitors spend a nice time while visiting the most remarkable spaces in the building every evening. “La Pedrera Night Experience” wants to be a different night-time experience, that’s why a local guide goes with the group and explains the history of the building and that’s why we included some projections and the audio-visual show on the terrace. It is a unique activity in Barcelona that ends with a glass of cava, a different visit from the one you could enjoy during the day with the audioguide. Nowadays we have 2 lifts that allow visitors to reach the roof top during the day and during the night. Even if we recommend to use the service stairs because every single corner of the house is worth to be seen, visitors are also welcome to use the lift if they prefer it. Thank you for your opinion. It will help us to keep on improving. We regret that the tour was not you were expecting for and we hope to see you again in La Pedrera in the future. Best regards,
