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 Fundació 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 Gaudí lived.

This was unexpectedly brilliant and our favourite Gaudi site we saw. The exterior is amazing. You start up on the roof which gives you marvellous views and is something to look at itself. Then you go down to the attic where there are informative displays and videos giving lots info about the man and his works. Finally you see one... More

I looks like an artistic piece of modern architecture, but it’s not. Fun fact is that at that time it was subjected to ridicule and disgust. :) If you admire Gaudi's work you should see it.

15 years ago I visited Spain for the first time and La Pedrera was the highlight of my visit. So it was delightful to once again see this amazing building designed by Antoni Gaudi. Even if you are not a fan of Gaudi, this should still be on your list of things to do. Every detail speaks of the genius... More

This building had the smell of romance in the air! It is amazing, in every corner of the building is an untold story. Apartments have private tenants and you have to be amazed on how they deal with millions of visitors in their building every year. Purchasing tickets was easy, we were lucky to go when no one was in... More

This was the highlight of a wonderful few days in this epic city. If you get the time to visit one attraction in Barcelona can I reccommend La Pedrera. It is a truly wonderful example of the abilities of the human mind. Gaudi is a genius and his stage is ever last in the buildings of Barcelona.

I simply love this building. The round shapes are spectacular, the parapets are amazing - everything makes it special. I only regret I couldn't see it on the inside.

If you are at all an architecture enthusiast, this is one of the three Gaudi building that you MUST visit in Barcelon. Get to the building first thing in the morning to avoid long lines. The tour and experience are second to none. Architecturally it is structurally innovative with a self supporting stone front and columns and the floor plates... More

The face of Barcelona Architecture...Antoni Gaudi. A unique, extremely creative architect, artist, engineer, greatly influenced by nature...Take a tour to see some of the planning, interior spaces, and the roof top over-looking Barcelona...Wear comfortable walking shoes...lots of multi-level steps especially on the roof. There's a nice gift shop for souvenirs on the first floor, side street... Location is steps away... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable 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 recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
