I would rate this as 3.5 if I could. It was worth seeing, but compared to other attractions in Barcelona I would say it was "good" not "great"

All visitors of Barcelona should visit this marvellous place. It's one of those Gaudi buildings that have much more than architecture. It's magic. It was build for a person with a very biased ethics. Gaudi's response was a severe, stone made, all rounded forms and very little decoration. But if you climb to the roof, then all the sense of... More

It is interesting to contrast this modernismo masterpiece with the austere but beautiful Barcelona pavilion. They both work and are so different. Apparently Gaudi never liked a straight line or a perpendicular corner, but somehow it works. This building is worth visiting. The rooftop chimneys alone are worth a photo op. But tickets online and go early when it is... More

One of Barcelona's structures built by Antonio Gaudi, Casa Mila, or la Pedrera, is basically an apartment building. The part you get to tour should start with a walk around on the roof with its vents and chimneys looking like some sort of medieval soldiers. Down one level is the attic with many displays. The apartment you get to tour... More

This is a very strange building, especially when you realise how long ago it was designed and built. Really worth seeing. The city tour bus stops close by but the queues can be very long. Book tickets on line if you can or get there just as it opens. There is a café right on the corner of the building... More

So I bought my tickets online because I hate lining up. I recommend going the day before to pick them up. If not, you can pick them up just before you go and don't have to wait in the ticket line, but if there are other people with reservations you may have to wait a little. We got the audioguide...

Unfortunately ,you can't see the facade at the moment. The building was very interesting with the unique roof, although my favorite part was the model appartement. Even the ceilings weren't straight. My only dissapointement was the entrance fee: 16 euro was too high.

This was by far my favourite of all the Gaudi sites. Not only is the building gorgeous but there are exhibits on Gaudi inside the attic area which is really cool. Also, make sure you head up to the roof.

Don't miss this amazing Gaudi creation. Self-guide with headphones is excellent. As well as seeing the outside, courtyards and rooftop you get to walk through an apartment furnished for the era it was built. We loved it & highly recommend.

From outside you can't see anything, because it's under renovation. The building is covered with huge billboard covering photo of the building. We were about to go inside, but you have to stay 1-2 hours in the row to by them.
