Casa Milà, Barcelona
Categories: Specialty Museums, Landmarks, Museums, Tourist Spots
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.

Terrace and attic good but I dream of a flat like that. Every detail is stunning. Minutes from his other masterpieces
The tour was well constructed. They started by explaining gaudi's influences and showed us the ground and 1st floor. Later we went directly to the rooftop to see some well made projection mappings. This was followed by a glass of wine downstairs. The main problem was that it was nothing worth the 105 euros we spend for 3 people. Also I wish they had proper seatings during the show. We were standing 90% of the time.
The entrance fee is quite expensive, but this fee does includes an audio guide and a tour of La Pedrera is quite an experience! The tour of the building is arranged in a way that you work your way back down from the courtyard decorated with the very special roof architecture to the gift shop that you can visit without buying tickets for the tour. When you climb the building's stairs to go see the temporary museum, don't forget to look up at the lovely colours and paintings decorating the ceiling. For me La Pedrera seems to embody many moods and styles and as you walk through the museum no doubt you'll understand what I mean. There is nothing quite like La Pedrera in the rest of the world (with each of Gaudi's designs but simultaneously recognisable but individually iconic) so if you're in Barcelona, make a trip to La Pedrera as part of your plans.
La Pedrera! One of Gaudi's greatest works! The tour is a must but is priced a bit high. The roof and the attic are the highlight of this amazing work of art. Book tickets online as there is always a long line. If you reach without a ticket and see a long line, just turn on your WiFi (they have free WiFi) and book the tickets on the spot! Saves you the hassle of standing in line :)

Beautiful exterior but not really worth the extremely high admission price. The interior rooms you can see consist of a small apartment (which is cool but takes between 10 and 20 minutes) and then the attic (which contains a small exhibit detailing the building). The roof is beautiful. Definitely not worth the admission price, which is actually higher than what you pay for Casa Batllo (the amazing Gaudi house down the block where you can tour the whole building and get an amazing interactive tour for cheaper). I only paid the admission because I had seen Batllo and the other Gaudi landmarks in Barcelona before but I would not pay again (for reference I have paid for the Batllo tour multiple times).
The only interesting here is the rooftop, there are some interesting facts about Gaudí and his way to work, but not worth it the 20 works entrance. Better visit cada Batllo
