Create an itinerary including Casa Mila - La Pedrera
To see one of architect Antoni Gaudí’s most controversial designs, visit Casa Mila - La Pedrera, 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. A visit to Casa Mila - La Pedrera represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Barcelona road trip planning site to plot your vacation.

  • Amazing Building. Lots of history. Easy access. Paid entry with a no shop and fair prices. Easy access. Relax inside and spend some time. You can see this for free outside if just visiting interests you but you don't want to pay to enter. Worth visiting if you're in Barcelona.
  • Very interesting building by Antoni Gaudi a fine masterpiece of his time. The way he has managed all the intricacies of the house of early 1900 is remarkable the way the building is designed is a great marvel of his time with the elevators and the water heaters. I feel they could have showed some more of his work. After the final of the exhibit they make you come down with so many stares. For seniors it is a big red flag 🚩 Overall it’s a great experience
  • This moved me! It embodies the feeling of Barcelona. You can see and feel the influence in all the architecture. From the hotel I stayed in to the streets of Barcelona. If you haven't seen it, you should. Even the way they use the money collected. It supports many inspiring non profit projects for the community 👏 we could learn a lot from this in the United States
  • The house was wonderful! But i expected a bit more for the money I paid. You can see only the rooftop, attic and top floor, which has been preserved in the old style. It was over too quickly. All in all, it was cool to see!
  • Nice experience, the rooftop light show was excellent. The tour guide was very good. Accessibility as well. A couple of minutes from the train station. Loved the walls and architecture. Totally recommend.
