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.

After going to Park Guell and Casa Batllo, this was a bit of a let down. For similar work but with much more elegance and more open to the public, go to Casa Batllo. And don't miss Park Guell. Get your tickets in advance for Guell.

This is well worth a tour. Provides a great insight into Gaudi's art forms and mindset, with fantastic sculptures on the roof, amazing attic roof beams representing the back bone and ribs of a whale, and a superb collection of the natural forms in nature that inspired the building. Really impressive.

Casa Mila is indeed one of the most visited attractions in Barcelona. So it’s important, specifically in Sommer times, to buy a ticket online. Finally it’s a bit cheaper than directly on site. Casa Mila is one of the most beautiful buildings of the Modernsime, a high point of the work of the genius Gaudi. The roof with its numerous ventilation chimneys is impressive. A museum is housed in an attic of the house, which feels like being in the belly of a whale. Here you can learn a lot of the design language of Antoni Gaudi. One floor below is an apartment to visit with original furniture. Here you get an insight into the life of the upper class and its staff in the time of the Modernsime. The audio guide makes everything even more lively and informs about every detail.

WE toured the entire building that is accessible to the public. The most interesting part is the rooftop with the views and all that is going on. You do go under the roof to see all the supports and there is an apartment they left so you can understand what living in the building would have been like. It is well worth the time.

We are really glad that you have enjoyed your visit to La Pedrera. If you specially liked the Warrior Rooftop we encourage you to discover it with the magic of the dark by doing The Pedrera Night Experience. The visit includes projections in different spaces of the building, discovering the building’s most remarkable treasures, an extraordinary audiovisual show on the Barcelona’s most remarkable Roof-Terrace and a glass of cava to finish off the evening. Sincerely,

I love casa Mila! La Pedrera as architectural whole is unique and of course there is nothing to say about its perfection. But paying 34e just to see the 1/3 of the magnificent rooftop with a video projection that although it had nice elements was just 20 minutes and only in one spot... all the flow that you feel in that rooftop was just gone.... very disappointing. As a fan and repeater I was let down. In my previous visit I did a normal tour before COVID and it was one of the highlights of Barcelona from my point of view!

Thank you for your opinion about the night visit, it allows us to evaluate and improve the quality of the service that we offer. The visit “La Pedrera Night Experience” is not just an overnight trip through the interior of the building, it intends to highlight aspects of La Pedrera that may go unnoticed during the visit by day. Because of this, we also use audiovisual materials such as holograms and moving images, to boost the nightlife. Like you said, the visit La Pedrera by day has more things to see, but at night the visit is an unique immersive experience, full of surprises, set in one of Barcelona’s most emblematic buildings. In order to combine it all, now you have the option to visit La Pedrera by day and night. You can buy the combined tickets al the official website of La Pedrera. 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 which benefited directly thousands of people. Again, thank you for your comments to improve our services in the future.

Very nice attraction, but it´s a lil bit less impressive than the casa Batlo.
It´s also cheaper than the Batlo experience.
We enjoyed the 1900s apartment visit with furniture from the era, great.

Thanks for sharing yout opinion 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. 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 Milà Family’s Apartment (Art Exhibition). The only areas that cannot be visited are the private homes and offices that remain in the building. thanks!

Half of the thing was under construction (which they didn't mention while buying the ticket). It's beautiful and interesting but way too expense in my opinion. Was very disappointed and unless you're a big fan of Gaudi, just move on to another spot.

We regret your disappointment with the visit of Casa Milà. 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 of the building, including the Warrior Rooftop, the Whale Attic, The Tenants’ Apartment and the Flower Courtyards. Nowadays, and as you said, the Butterfly courtyards is under restauration, to repair its pictorical ornamentions. The tasks are cleanning, rehabilitating structural elements as well as recoveingr the original textures, colors and elements such as stucco, paintings and polychromes from Gaudí’s work and will be finished the next December. The Fundació Catalunya La Pedrera, responsible for Casa Milà, thus maintains its commitment to maintaining and conserving its heritage. Sincerely,
