Casa Milà, Barcelona

(4.3/5 based on 14,000+ reviews on the web)
To see one of architect Antoni Gaudí’s most controversial designs, visit Casa Milà, known for its undulating stone facade and the wrought-iron decorations on its balconies and windows. Declared a World Heritage Site in 1984, the building features some of the most innovative elements of its time, including underground parking. Perhaps the most remarkable element of the building is the roof, which features enormous chimneys designed to look like medieval knights. The architect’s elaborate plans for the roof included adding a huge statue of the Virgin, but when the businessman who commissioned the building said no, Gaudí resigned from the project. Today, the roof is frequently the site of music performances. Check online for an accurate schedule of special events and available tours.

  • Gaudi was certainly unique and ahead of his time in regards to architectural design. The tour is a must -- we were staying in the Eixample area so we just walked 10 minutes from our hotel to see it. 
  • If you are around the city with enough time, it is one of forced Barcelona attractions. In winter there are many queues. The audio-guide that is included is correct, but sometimes a bit difficult to follow, as well as some notes. They don't give you much more information to enter, although they are going a little visit. The tour starts climbing up to the roof and then goes down from the attic to the interior floor. In the end, we could not see the first floor because it was closed for an exhibition, which we didn't. In general the visit well worth although we expected us that the journey was longer.

  • It is nice building but it is really expensive to visit. Inside looks nice but it can be a little bit cheap. It is one of the important building by Gaudi

  • Nothing much to say besides you must visit it!!!! Incredible experience that culminates with the splendid roof. If you're there in Summer, have a look at the event program as they organize classic concerts some evenings, right on the roof. Splendid experience.
  • It's really the place you need to go in Barcelona because of popularity. But the visit itself was not the most satisfying. Can't say it's bad because it's still one heck of Gaudi's famous work. Top floors do have models and explanations of the building and how the fluidity of the space actually work. But it's still quite a bland visit. They could make it look nicer on the roof if they replace the chain-link fabric fences with something better looking...Safety first? Well, we are in Catalunya.
  • Very interesting. Not cheap, but certainly a good idea to pay a visit to this Gaudi building. Both the walk on the roof, the top floor and the apartment are very impressive.
  • Splendid and well presented, with a useful audio guide and well thought through items on display. The attic, with its catenary arches, was a real highlight for me. Physics and aesthetics rolled into one.
  • Buy you tickets ahead online to avoid the lines. Casa Milà is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Even if you're not into architecture or art or anything related to it, this is a must-see. Very informative and fun to see.
