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.

Apart from the completely commendable surreal architecture of the building, the Children's Room had a display of children's toys and music that brought a lot emotional memories of my innocent childhood. The music is still echoing in my mind right now. Therefore, La Pedrera is a great place because it left me thinking more about how (from my experience) better... More

We enjoyed this beautiful small group evening tour with an excellent dinner to follow. Our guide Maria was very knowledgeable. It is a beautiful building, and it was so interesting to see how the wealthy lived at that time in another Gaudi masterpiece.

So different to any building I have been in before, would definitely visit again. Unfortunately there was scaffolding up on the outside of the building when we visited, they were doing a deep clean of the exterior of the building. Nevertheless it was a beautiful building. The views from the roof were spectacular and loved the chimneys.

the terrace is just incredible! not only the apearance but the architectural solutions Gaudi found. the visit to the apartments is also very interesting and the idea of somebody building such a house to live in and to have income from tenting a great part to other families is very curious.

I was new to Gaudi but my wife brought me along. I am happy I did not miss it. Fabulous and unique do not begin to describe this house. His approach to the design of the roof top is very interesting and the views from the roof are not to be missed.

I am a huge Gaudi fan and have seen all of his major pieces on my trip to Spain, However even without an interest in the architect, this building is unlike any other and worth a visit for that reason alone. The price is fair and includes an audio guide, and the roof top is so unique that it must... More

As an Architect, I was particularly interested in visiting this building designed by the Spanish architect, Antoni Gaudi. There is an exhibition of his architectural models in there; and the rooftop with its unusual chimney stacks and parapets is marvellous. The views out over the city of Barcelona from that vantage point are good. The balcony railings on the outside... More

This famous place always gets a big queue to get a ticket. Try to book online and avoid it. The interior design is awe-inspiring and the rooftop is like being in another universe. Highly recommended!!

Unfortunately for us when we've been there they were refurbishing so we couldn't go inside, but even on the outside the building has a stunning architecture and is beautiful to watch. we had tea and deserts across the road while admiring the building and reading it's history. Having a bit of knowledge about this Gaudi's art makes it even more... More

ive been here after sagrada familia, parc guel and casa batlo. maybe that's why it didnt leave much impact on me. rooftop was quite gorgeous but they blocked the main entrance of which the ceiling has coral marbling. 20 euros for the rooftop.... felt a bit pricy. if u r running short of budget, i think u don miss much...
