Owner description: 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.

Couple this with a tour of Casa Batllo and you will be impressed. They heavily marketed Pedrera in Barcelona, but I feel Batllo is easily just as brilliant as Pedrera.

Check to see on which nights of the week they offer the Secret Tour, a guided tour. What you see that you might miss during the day are the amazing shadows cast from Gaudi's lamps and ornamentation--truly magical. The night view from the rooftop is also spectacular. The exterior is currently covered while they do restoration work, but the interior... More

La Pedrera is a bit similar to Casa Batllo, but more like a proper apartment (covering the whole floor). The admission tickets include the free audio guide as well. And it starts from the hall and then straight to the roof and walk your way down (or take the lift if you like) to the apartment. Unfortunately when we visited... More

We toured Casa Mila late one afternoon and loved it. There is a lot to see. The rooftop is probably the high point, literally and figuratively. The creative treatment of chimneys as art is amazing and the placement of arches shows Gaudi's highlighting of Sagrada Familia. The courtyard and stairwells are innovative and the display of period pieces in an... More

A must-see if you visit Barcelona - get the audio guide and you learn loads about Gaudi and his avant garde approach to architecture. I loved it!

Just a tip: at this time the exterior is completely covered in cloth and scaffolding. It may be fine on the inside. We were on a short trip so we didn't have time to go in.

Thanks for taking the time to share your opinion about Casa Milà. As you have noticed, we are under an important restoration of this building registered as a UNESCO Cultural World Heritage in 1984. We are glad to inform you that a part of the facade is already discovered and is expected to be completely restored on December 2014. We... More

Absolutely loved La Pedrera. It is simply stunning. We booked tickets before hand and got them printed at our hotel so skipped the queue. Would definitely recommend this, we then did this for all attractions (especially for La Sagrada) Obviously the best bit is the roof top. It is in pristine condition. Could've stayed up there all day. You can... More

One of a kind rooftop sculpture. Unfortunately, currently the outside (part of its unusual charm) is draped in sheeting and undergoing rehab/cleaning(?). Definitely a must while in Barcelona.

Working apartment building that offers tours of the roof, attic, and an example apartment. This was the least crowded and my personal favorite Gaudi building that i had visited.
