Description: Casa Mila, popularly known as La Pedrera, is a most unusual building...
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.

Definitely get tix online that give you special entry any day/time and get the audio guide. Learned a lot about Gaudi and his design workings in the museum. Nice to see apartment furnished as it would have been. Innovative man ahead of his time. The level below the roof is actually another roof of sorts...top of building is so whimsical... More

This building is a living museum, and quite impressive even for today. The tour includes the upper attic level, roof and a large apartment. All I can say is it is unlike any other tour we have had and was most enjoyable.

I was thoroughly impressed by the tour of La Pedrera. I had gone to La Sagrada Familia the day before, so I was not sure that this tour would even compare, and I was hesitant to spend the euro 21.50. Though nothing compares to the Sagrada Familia in scope, I found this home to be much more accessible. The tour... More

A stroll on the Passeig Gracia is wonderful. Many beautiful buildings to see but this is one of the best.

From the outside this looks like an amazing structure, but it gets even better as you go inside. A lift takes you up to the roof where the curves and staircases invite exploration and there are great views. On the way down you can visit the museum in the attic and see an apartment complete with period furniture.

Barcelona sports world famous architecture, the most famous of which is Gaudi. There are several other architects of Gaudi's period that were also outstanding, but not as famous. La Pedrera is an example of an apartment complex that Gaudi designed and executed. It is definitely worth a visit, but I would suggest seeing this building before going to the Sagrada... More

To visit La Padrera at night is such a different and amazing experience. The roof top being a high light of the visit.

A beautiful example of Gaudi's genius work, right in the middle of Barcelona. Plan to buy tickets and audio guide for the best touring experience. Tour take about 1 hour. Most of toured space is handicap accessible except for the roof. A must see.

Only seen the outside, but very interesting! Bigger than I thought. Worth the visit and I imagine the inside is just as interesting.

Simply superb. This is an amazing building that just gets better and better as you walk through. So much detail to see and admire. You get a good view from the roof as well, you can see La Sagrada Famillia in the distance. This is a 'must do' in Barcelona.

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.
