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.

If nothing else, the location and stroll up the Passeig Gracia is worth it. Gaudi's works are all stunning, but this one draws long lines. I wouldn't recommend this for kids; it takes a while to work your way through the entire building, and you'll want to spend some time up on the roof admiring the chimneys.

We viewed this building externally as part of a free walking tour dedicated to Gaudi's works, but did not view it internally because of time constraints. In its time it was greeted with a mixed reception, with many locals nicknaming it La Pedrera, 'the stone quarry' because they thought it very plain for the times and their expectations of Gaudi....

The team of La Pedrera managed to create one of this very unusual experiences - both entertaining and intellectual. I had a guided tour but I suspect that the one on your own would be great too. Very nice mixture of different formats and activities. And of course cafe on the ground floor. Must.

This was inspiring and brilliant. What a visionary and organic architect. You don't need to get into the queue and wait for an hour. Go to the front gate and ask for a premium ticket. It'll cost a few more euros, but it'll save you an hour.

At Casa Batiilo you get six floors or so of Madness, here you'll see the ground floor courtyard and the roof, the rest of the building is still in use. So if you are short of time do Casa Batillo and segarada... that said the roof is stunning and in the attic of the roof you can see some exibits,... More

If you are not familiar with Gaudi´s work this is will blow your mind. La Pedrera is completely different from any building you may have visited. Rooftop is crazy, attic is amazing and the architecture details in the building are impressive. A "must visit" in Barcelona. Audio guide (included in tour) has a very nice description of everything.

We saw both La Pedrera and Casa Batllo and the two complemented each other wonderfully. La Pedrera is huge and not nearly as intimate, but is another great example of Guadi's modernism. The museum was very informative and explained a lot of features also found in Casa Batllo, but were explained much better. It is not only a fantastic aesthetic... More

I take the night tour as I want to get a different feeling of Gaudi's work. I am not disappointed and our tour guide Maria does a very good job in explaining the history of the building and relationship of Gaudi with the owner. Like other say in there that a small group of people basically has the whole build... More

Since my last trip to Bcn, I was hankering to see the LaPedrera aka Casa Mila. This is one of the top sights to see here so prepare to spend some time queueing. The earlier you arrive the less legnthy the line is. I recommend to arrive at 10 am. The entrance fee is quite high (20,50 ?) but you... More

This guy has done so much for Barcelona and architecture and interior design since 100 years ago that is unbelievable. Maybe a bit pricey to get in but the story and the views are worth it. Enjoy.

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.
