Photos not allowed at Casa Mila?

Just reading thru the website and noticed they say no picture-taking, which I thought was very odd. Is that true? Would be very disappointing not to be able to. Thanks.

Zappcat:

This is what their webpage says:

To take photographs or make recordings you need to apply for authorisation from the Communication Department of Fundació Catalunya-La Pedrera.

However when you go to the roof, you can take photos there.

Hola Zappcat,

Have a look at the pics taken by other TA members. There are some recent ones taken of the interiors.

I think in many places the problem is that too many people did not pay attention to the "No flash" rules that many art galleries and museums used to have. I don't know whether the people were just selfish and felt that somehow the rule did not apply to them, or perhaps they were too stupid to know how to turn off the flash. The result is that an increasing number of places do not allow any photography.

Hola,

I think they mean "pictures for publication and comercialization". If you just want take photographs for your personal use, I don´t think you will have any problem. I have been able to take pictures whenever I have gone there. In case of doubt, you can mail them:

Hope to have helped.

Friends:

I just called La Pedrera and they say you can take photos without a tripod.

I wish all these sights would say this in their websites to save time for people interested in seeing them.

I just called Casa Battlo and they also allow non-professional photography.

Thank you all so much for your responses, especially Benny for taking the time to call La Pedrera. As to Sidney's point, I also read somewhere that the Salvador Dali Museum in Figueres says no flash photography or you'll be asked to leave. I must admit I wouldn't have realized that was a problem, like many other people I'm sure. Good to know, but agree with Benny, would be helpful if their websites prominently make clear their policies so there's no confusion.

Zappcat,

At the Dali Museum in Figueres, I've seen attendants stopping visitors from using their flash but no one was asked to leave as long as they heeded the warning. At the Dali House-Museum in Port Lligat (Cadaques), absolutely no pictures are allowed inside the bldg (escorted groups are small so they keep an eye on everyone who enters).
