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.

Superb to see Gaudi's work for everyday living after visiting the Sagrada Familia. The art nouveau apartment is superb. Wonderfully creative touches on the roof, and superb furniture to admire. The gift shop is tasteful. Not the usual 'tourist junk'.

Like his other creations, Le Pedrera is unique in many ways. The rooftop has lovely views of the Passeig de Gracia and some really cool sculptures. The guide was useful in knowing the intention behind the design and his inspiration from nature. Definitely worth a visit.

This building is another example of how brilliant Gaudi was. It is also near Passeig de Gracia so there are plenty of dining choices as well as other sights nearby. If you're in the area, check it out, it's amazing!

We bought skip the line tickets from Julia travel but this made no difference when we turned up at 9am as everyone else in the queue also had pre booked tickets ! After this we had no problem the audio guide was great.

Absolutely fantastic thing to do! The design of the place really makes you wonder how ahead of his time gaudi was. The building is unbelievable. We had someone in a wheelchair and the staff hopped up whenever we turned a corner offering assistance. We were able to use the old style wooden elevator and it was such a gem!

Great tour - an elevator to the roof to enjoy the view and all the odd chimneys etc on top. You walk down the stairs to the restored attic area which is amazing. This guy was way ahead of his time. Lots of videos and examples of how the place was built, thinking behind it, etc. Down another couple of... More

Thank for your comments, we’re glad that you enjoyed your experience at La Pedrera. As you say, we recommend to buy the tickets on-line in order to avoid the queues. Now you can buy your tickets on the queue and you can skip the queue and also connect to WiFi La Pedrera. Sincerely, More

I'm not a fan of guided tours - at all. But I took one here and it was quite a bit of fun. The building itself is stunning. Plus, you get to go on the roof! That alone was worth it.

I highly recommend to visit the roof and cafe after the visit. Not long queue as the entrance fee looks expensive and La Pedrera could be thought as 2nd or 3rd masterpiece of Gaudi. It is totally worth a visit to see the extraordinary chimneys as you won't see them elsewhere.

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.
