Designed for the wealthy businessman Pere Milà, Antoni Gaudí's modernist oddity in the center of Barcelona has become one of the city's most famous buildings. Rich with phantasmagorical features to explore, here are five interesting tidbits to start your tour!
Casa Milà's nickname – La Pedrera – arose from its similarity to a single limestone precipice. A controversial building in its time, the term wasn't always used so affectionately!
The design was heavily inspired by Gaudí's Catholic faith. He almost walked off the project when a planned statuary of the Virgin Mary was blocked by local building codes!
The rooftop terrace offers spectacular views over Barcelona and Gaudí's famous as-yet-unfinished Sagrada Familia. In summer, an open-air bar provides drinks and live music too!
The roof terrace offers plenty more to quell your curiosity than the views alone. The Medieval knights among its surreal sculptures keep cool air flowing through the building.
Gaudí wanted the building's residents to know each other. Elevators serve just every second floor, encouraging friendly encounters in the stairwells and landing!
Casa Milà's opening times are 9:00AM to 8:00PM daily from March 1st to November 3rd, and 9:00AM to 6.30PM the rest of the year (closed December 25th and January 13th to 19th). La Predrera is also worth seeing at night, though. The rooftop bar is open until midnight throughout the summer months, and there are also occasional nighttime tours and exhibitions worth keeping an eye out for.
Book tickets in advance to beat the queues, especially during peak season. Standard tickets cost upwards of €20 (audio guide included), with some special exhibitions costing more. Note that concessions are incredibly generous so bring anything that might qualify you! Children under six can go for free.
Casa Milà can be accessed by buses 7,16,17, 22, 24 and V17, or by taking the Metro lines 3 or 5 to the station Diagonal.

You can get many information related to the visit that and discuss some things that you could not do in other tours
The tour was really informative and well organised, me and my husband were both really impressed
The guided tour of the Pedrera was out of this world. It was made all the more interesting and worthwhile with the amazing tour guide we had.. she was very engaging and extremely passionate about Gaudi's work. It was totally worth every penny spent. Stunning musical/visual show. A must do at night time.
The guided tour was very informative and at the right chronological order. You get a lot of information about Gaudi life and work. Our Australian guide was great! Fluent English and funny.
Great way to spend the first day and plan where you want to go back to visit and spend more time. The commentary also is helpful so you know about sights you are seeing.
