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.

    Another Gaudi masterpiece!
    Another one of Gaudi's masterpieces. Surprised by the reviewers who found this building exterior blah. It is unlike anything else I've ever seen! Distinctive and highly visible from the street. We found the self-guided tour interesting and appreciated being able to go at our own pace. You don't get to see the whole interior as this is still an apartment building occupied by tenants. That said, you do get into the attic and roof, which are incredible. And you get to tour one apartment which gives you an idea of what the whole building would be like. The gift shop is also very nice, but beware - it is a public space and my cellphone was pick-pocketed while I was shopping. Classic case of being bumped, and then my phone was gone. Which was of no concern to the tour operator or the gift shop staff. Still, this is experience that fans of Gaudi should not miss.
    We're so pleased to have served you. See you next time!

    Antoni Gaudi House
    Line ups were long at Casa Batlló, so I paid the 25-euro online ticket to enter the Casa Mila attraction instead based on limited time. The attraction was pretty cool, and on the top of the roof you can see Sagrada Familia in the distance. Casa Mila, is also known as La Pedrera, had was constructed in the early 20th century. I ended up purchasing an Antoni Gaudi book, who is the famous Spanish architect of Casa Mila, Sagrada Familia and other attractions in Barcelona. Antoni Gaudi designed Casa Mila with without load-bearing walls, transferring the entire weight of the building on to a cleaver network of pillars and beans that converted each floor into an open space. Casa Mila is a 6-story building with an attic, and has quadruple the surface area that Casa Batlló has.
    We love to hear that you enjoyed the experience! 🥰

    Gorgeous architecture and structure!
    The whole journey started with taking the lift all the way directly to the 6th floor. Then you will walk anti-clockwise to go through one apartment, followed with green screen photoshoot both and gift shop. Going up one more floor to the attic, where there is a Gaudi exhibition. The roof has amazing view towards the Main Street Pg. de Gracia and you can look down to the atrium of this residential block. Probably because this one is not as other private bespoke houses for wealthy people, the interior is not as stunning as other Gaudi’s houses. The overall architecture and structural design is gorgeous though!
    Thank you! We hope to see you again soon.

    Great to see inside this unusual building. The roof is particularly quirky. We also did the vr experience which made a nice varied visit. Would thoroughly recommend going inside this building as well as admiring it from the street.
    Thanks for classifying it as a must-see 👏🥰

    Curves and Lack of Angles Inside
    A superb example of Modernista design, nicely viewed from the wide sidewalks along the Passeig. You will find lots of people outside all day long taking photos and waiting to get in. The inside spaces are unique for the lack of angles.

    Just to Check off the List
    Yes, it is amazing architecture from a genius architect. The visit is for first time tourists in Barcelona, and to check it off the list to see. It is my least favorite of Antonio Gaudi's genius designs. For Dan Brown fans, his book "Origin" the plot based in Barcelona and Casa Mila has part in his book.

    The genius of Gaudi at Casa Mila - La Pedrera
    My wife and I toured Casa Mila - La Pedrera during a visit to Barcelona this past November. It really displays the genius of Gaudi. The apartment was very interesting, as was the attic and the rooftop. It is a highlight that I would recommend not missing.

    Very good.
    Get there well ahead of your time. There's a single line for those with and without tickets and it doesn't split till you get to the end (I suspect there isn't room for two lines). At first it's interesting. Then you go a little higher and it's more interesting, Then you hit the attic, and see its architecture, and the models of Gaudi's other works, ... and then the payoff: the roof. It's like a playground for your eyes and brain. Take a hat and water, it will be hot up there.
    We love to hear that you enjoyed the experience! Thank so much for taking your time to write this comment!

    Block of flats
    The whole ticket / queue situation for many site in Barcelona is a mess tbh. Poorly organised, expensive, subject to abuse etc etc. Once we got in it wasn’t bad particularly if you’re intrigued by Gaudi or maybe love his work. To be honest it left me a bit cold. The idea that much of his work was inspired by nature is ‘interesting’ ….what has nature done to deserve that! The experience was ok and in the end it was reasonably well laid out but basically it’s a block of flats with a few strange items on the roof! …..I’ll sit back and wait for so stick I’m sure but hey everyone’s different and you’ll probably love it!
    Thanks for sharing your experience at La Pedrera - Casa Milà. It helps us to constantly improve. We are sorry you were disappointed with the visit, which has been designed so that you can enjoy both the building and learn about the architecture of Antoni Gaudí. Finally, we would also like to inform you that the Catalunya La Pedrera Foundation allocates the revenue from the tickets it sells to social, environmental, educational and cultural projects led by the Foundation itself. We work hard so that visitors have a pleasant visit to La Pedrera and we are sorry that the visit was not to your liking. Sincerely,

    Expensive but beautiful
    The price is really not friendly, but contrary to Casa Batlló (which is about 50 % more already) you can really see everything, including the vault and a tiny museum of the materials. This building is bigger, more interesting (the chimneys) and a newer one (meaning his style was developed into bigger perfection). If you only have the time or budget for 1 house of Gaudi, be sure to pick this one over Casa Batlló.
    Thanks for sharing, your opinion is very valuable!

Casa Milà - La Pedrera is another one of Antoni Gaudì's masterpieces. It is a beautiful building that beckons you to visit it.

Unfortunately, you are only able to visit a small section of the building which is really an apartment building. There are a few rooms you visit, but I would say 75% of the building is closed-off to tourists.

Also, one of the most fascinating facts about La Pedrera is that the Milà family actually sued Gaudì for going over budget and he won. Not a word of that is mentioned on the tour.

There is a photo op, which is handled sort of like a cattle call. You are shown four possible backgrounds at the register, but not allowed to choose. You get what you get.

The attic was our favorite section due to its beauty and the ability to take our time. The rest of the house felt rushed. Visiting the rooftop is amazing with gorgeous views.

This was a must see. The audio is very easy to follow, it actually triggers itself when you enter the various areas. No need to try and find the audio that goes with the room your in. This is a beautiful building and a lovely experience. A must see

We have visited Barcelona over 4 times, but this was the first time visiting Casa Mila.
Both my husband & I are seniors & handicapped. The staff at Casa Mila
made the visit very pleasant. There are elevators for disabled people - very convenient.
Only bad thing was we couldn’t walk around the rooftop. The elevator could take us to the rooftop, but we couldn’t walk around the rooftop. The steps were too steep and no handicap ramps. However, we were able to get a view of the rooftop , skyline and the busy exclusive shopping street below Casa Mila.
One final tip - get entrance tickets & audio headphones from TripAdvisor. There was a long line of people waiting to buy tickets at 9:45AM.

It's always nice when a time-entry works as it should. We had purchased advanced tickets for a 4:45 entry time and walked right in. There was plenty of staff to help you in the correct direction and, after receiving our audioguide, we got in line for the elevator. After a brief wait, we were on our way to the apartment, which is beautifully furnished. The crowds moved well, so we were able to get some photos without others in them. There were two options for reaching the attic, either stairs or the elevator. The attic was much more interesting than we supposed. It gave one of the best explanations of how Gaudi came up with his engineering designs and there are models throughout. The roof was well worth the climb and offered beautiful views and photo ops. We took the elevator back down. There is a well-stocked gift shop.

1. It’s in the heart of a fab street - with Tiffany’s across the road (saw a €357 ring in there after our tour) so it’s a great area to look around afterwards

2. It’s inexpensive - 21€ each

3. It’s organized! You are in and looking around quickly and it’s not crowded

4. A leisurely 2 hours is all you need

5. Inside is as intriguing as the views from outside

6. This is the last building Guidi worked in before fully committing himself for the rest of his life to the Sagrada Familiar and he used many of his structural ideas he used here on the temple!

Such an unusual apartment building. Really interesting to see how the rooms were laid out and what life looked like in the 1920’s. But as well as that you have the amazing vision that is the architecture of Antoni Gaudi. The roof with its guardians that look like chimneys is incredible and the entrance halls and just the amazing undulating shape of the building is breathtaking. A must see if you’re in Barcelona.

When inside the building, it's too crowded. When in the attic and rooftop, it's not too crowded and it's amazing to be there. We went in the afternoon on a weekday.
If you have booked a time to go in, don't arrive too early, they won't allow you in until it's almost your booked time (like 5-10 minutes before that).

Good audio tour. Very different to Casa Battlo and glad we visited both.
Roof was closed as it was torrential rain which was understandable (also limited enjoyment of the courtyards as we’d of got drenched).
Worth getting the VR glasses tour on the mezzanine floor!
With the extras we spent about 1.5-1.75 hours
