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.

Top ways to experience Casa Milà - La Pedrera
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
  • Diagonal • 4 min walk
  • Can Serra • 5 min walk

La Pedrera-Casa Mila- another jaw-dropping work of Antoni Gaudi. All his masterpieces are so different, you cannot pick just one or two...

27 euros to see the most beautiful ventilation in the world.
Dec 2019
We must pay tribute to the Museum dealers of Barcelona and the bankers of Caixa de Catalunya. They do not suffer from Christian love for tourists. Tourists are sheep and they need to be sheared. And their great compatriot, Antonio Gaudi, who died in a hospital for beggars, helps them in this. The UNESCO world heritage status increases the tax. To get to Mila's House, you have to pay 27 euros! Two tickets to the Orsay! Or 1.5 tickets to the Louvre or the Vatican museums. What is one and a half times more expensive than the world's best art collection led by Gioconda and twice the world's best impressionist collection? The most beautiful ventilation in the world! It is she who flashes in all guidebooks as a work of art. The chimneys and ventilation shafts look like fairy-tale warriors. These biomorphic warriors were supposed to guard the 12-meter statue of the virgin, the pedestal for which Gaudi, who had fallen into Catholicism, saw the entire building. The virgin didn`t appear (due to the anarchic protests of 1909), the army was left alone. For completeness of the impression. Antonioni, a classic of Italian neorealism, shot his film "Profession: reporter"on the roof. Nothing else outstanding. Photos from the roof on the Eixample, the Museum of Gaudi models (interesting, but available on the Internet), a fake apartment of the early XX century, a patio in the form of an oval well. Wrought-iron balcony grilles made by Jujol are free to view. For all of 27 euros.

Thanks for your comments. 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 (Gaudí Exhibition) Tenants’ Apartment, the Courtyards and the Milà Family’s Apartment (Art Exhibition). 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 more than 500.000 people in 2019.

It's like walking into the mind of Gaudi
Nov 2019
Our Viator guide brought us in to see the fun house architectural designs of Casa Mila or La Pedrera, which literally means ‘the quarry’ also referred to as “the building that embodies nature”. To me it looks like a series of giant waves. From the outside we could see metal terraces with interweaving leaves and flowers, a strong contrast to the hard stone structure. Each of the windows and terrace doors looked to me like numerous eyes peering out from the giant stone “monster”.

As we moved inside through the organic, undulating rooms (there wasn’t a right angle inside the building) we could see the period furniture of a bourgeois family in the early 20th century. The chandelier, lace curtains and even a fruit bowl on a kitchen table gave us the ability to get a feel for what it was actually like to live in such a unique space designed by “one of the greatest architects to ever live”.

On the top floor, or attic, we were able to explore Gaudi's organic collection of materials that so influenced his designs. You could easily see how a nautilus or skeleton could become the ribs or arches of a roof. Fossilized sea beds, or scallop shells became textural elements while the smoothness of a gourd or knotty meandering branch might provide a fluid connection to the earth and the world around us, to be part of, not separate from.

We climbed up to the roof terrace where we saw the masterpieces of his outdoor sculptures. Each chimney was sculpted into a different sentinel-like totem, giving the space a feeling of a protected, if not mystical, outdoor art gallery, with a fabulous view that connected us to the birds eye perspective of the architecture on the Passeig de Gracia below. We turned away from the street and looked down to the heavily lidded, sleepy interior windows facing inward making me wonder if the building weren’t alive.

Thanks for taking the time to share your opinion about Casa Milà and for your extended comment. 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. As you say, the Whale Attic with the Gaudí exhibition offers a broad view of his work, showing the most basic traits of his clearly visual and empirical way of understanding architecture through models, audiovisuals and objects. The route around the space is divided into seven areas, one of which is devoted entirely to La Pedrera. If you liked the views from the Warrior Rooftop we encourage you to discover it now with the magic of dark, doing the night-time experience “La Pedrera Night Experience”, where you will be able to see multiple projections in the badalots as well as good views to Passeig de Gràcia. Sincerely,

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,

enjoyed the attic museum as well as rooftop and interior
Feb 2020
Because of price, I had intended to just view the building from the outside. But when I went in the gift shop and looked into the interior, I wisely decided to spend the money on the tour. Wow. I am an architecture buff and this is one of the few jaw-dropping structures I have toured. So very different from La Sagrada Familia. I was astonished that there are no interior load-bearing walls! Worth every penny, in my opinion.

Impressive architectural building.
Dec 2019
The building was nice and even though i did not get a chance to go up, it was well placed to give gorgeous sunset views.
On top of that the building was very impressive and displayed gothic architecture very well.

Not sure it worth the money...
Sep 2020 • Couples
Unless you are a big architecture fan, I think it’s a little too expensive to see a early 20th century dwellment... :-)
There are interesting fixtures and designs of course.

Thanks Gaudi for the amazing building. I took the breakfast tour for euro 39 at 8am which come with a guide and A cup of coffee or fruit juice after the tour. The apartment tour were worth it with explanations on certains details on the doors and windows

I was at awe the moment we stepped into the building, like any other buildings by the great master architect Gaudi.

The attic itself is amazing with lots of exhibits where you can spend some time on.

#I visited in 2018. Not sure if the breakfast tour is still available.
