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 Fundacio 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 Gaudi lived.

Judging from the other reviews, the price of getting into La Pedrera may be overpriced for many people although there are always lines to get in. However, on the corner there is an entrance to the free gallery space which often has interesting exhibits. Right now there's an exhibit comparing Gaudí with other contemporary architects like Frank Lloyd Wright in the US and MacIntosh in Scotland. The fact that there's a uniformed person standing at the entrance may be enough to disuade any but the most intrepid non-Spanish /non-Catalan speaker but just point to the poster outside or walk in the door as if you know where you're going. Once inside, you enter one of the open patios of the building where you can walk around on the ground level and walk up the stairs to the 1st floor where the gallery space is located. I imagine that for many people this may be enough of a taste of Gaudí and the price is right. Enjoy

Very nice house. But very expensive visit entrance for a disappointing visit. The roof is very nice, but for the rest there is only one level in the house to visit with a shop...of course. Better give the money for a visit to Casa Batllo.

I don't remember exactly but the ticket price was a bit expensive. It is a real functioning dwelling building in which one floor is preserved as it was at the beginning of 20th century. The visitor can go through all rooms and see the interior design of that epoch. Moreover one can go to the roof and make a foto with a famous chimneys. But I still think that it is not an object of first importance to attend when you are in Barcelona.

We visited this crazy building in December 2012. The attention to detail by Gaudi was amazing. Every door, windows and their handles are carefully designed. The apartment is well presented and the audio guide (paid separately) was clear. A must for Gaudi fans!

This seems the more popular choice visitor wise but if I had to choose between this and Casa Batllo I'd choose Batllo. Audioguides are not included in the prices of entrance here, although you do go up in the lift and make your way down through the house - so it's possibly an easier option if you aren't a fan of steps. Never the less it is an amazing property and very worthy of a visit.
