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.

Interesting house with amazing roof. It is well worth a visit, but if you have limited time or money (an adult ticket is 20,5€!), I'd recommend some other Gaudi sites: Casa Batllo, Sagrada Familia and Park Güell.

An important reason to visit Barcelona is to take in the work of Gaudi, and La Pedrera should not be missed. The rooftop alone is worth the ticket price to see the chimneys plus the surrounding neighborhood, including La Sagrada Familia in the distance. Admission also gives you the opportunity to walk through an apartment and view the detail work.

We visited a few Gaudi works whilst in Barcelona and actually enjoyed this the most. But your ticket on line and you can skip the line and go in at your allocated time. There were less crowds than Casa Batllo, and from a personal perspective the apartment was one we could see ourselves living in so the example they had... More

Casa Mila was one of pur favorite places in Barcelona next to parc Guell. Even though it's quite expensive to enter and visit you won't be sorry.

If you have limited time for Gaudi's buildings, visit Sagrada Familia, then Casa Batllo, then Casa Mila - in that order. Casa Mila is cool, especially the roof, where you can view Sagrada Familia as framed through an arch he made. We cracked up at how many times the word "undulating" was used, but it is an apt description.

Again due to the high entrance fee we only viewed it from the outside which was enough. You can supplement your education of Gaudi through outside sources like the net and texts and ads etc.

The building that bankrupted the wealthiest family in Barcelona at the time ... if only they knew what would become of such an unusual and architecturally unique building. Stunning at night, would highly recommend it!

Thank for your comments, we’re glad that you enjoyed your experience at La Pedrera.

This is definitely a unique experience - Gaudi was a definitely a one off, some would say genius, some would say goof-ball but all the same the roof area of this landmark offers unforgettable views and unforgettable architecture.

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.
