Owner description: Casa Mila, popularly known as La Pedrera, is a most unusual building, constructed between 1906 and 1912 by the architect Antoni Gaudí (1852–1926) and declared UNESCO World Heritage in 1984. Today it is the headquarters of Fundació Catalunya La Pedrera and houses a cultural centre that is a reference point in Barcelona for the range of activities it organises and the different spaces for exhibitions and other public uses it contains. A visit to La Pedrera, landmark building and container, gives us a better understanding and appreciation of architecture and transports us to the period when Antoni Gaudí lived.

“Must do this in Barcelona”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

We jumped off the Barcelona Bus Tour and straight into the line nice and early. While I would not normally do this type of thing on my travels, I have to say it was well worth it. The different levels with the different styles made for an interesting visit.
The gift shops had some very nice things, a little bit expensive though

“Fine Gaudi Work”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Unfortunately the outside was under wraps for repair so could not take in its beauty but have seen enough pictures to get the idea. The tour takes you right up to roof top where you can explore the many shapes he created, facinating and nice views. Then you head to attic to explore different exhibits and finish in a recreated apartment. Really enjoyed visit.

“Important Architecture”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Gaudi's unique architectural style is fascinating, with no straight lines and plant and animal forms. A real strange building with its famous chimneys. and balconies. After the bright sun on the roof, I forgot to remove my sunglasses and fell badly in the dark exhibition room, which shouldn't be missed. I was very bruised as I failed to see the black plinths (plinths and floor covered in black carpet) where the exhibit stands were . Perhaps the lighting has improved. I know the Palacio is well worth visiting, too, but I didn't see it myself. Barcelona has such a lot to offer but you do need to beware of pickpockets.

“Don't miss this”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Barcelona is all about Gaudi, and visiting Casa Mila (also called La Pedrera) will give you a great idea of his work. One piece of advice: buy your tickets on line before you go to avoid waiting in line. We took teen-agers with us and pre-arranged for a tour guide. It was well worth it. The roof-top alone makes the visit worthwhile! My 13 year old granddaughter commented: "I think Gaudi had a sense of humor".

“Gaudi all over!”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Take the audioguide, buy tickets prior to visit or arrive early in the morning. The Pedrera is great, the view from the roof is phenomenal, the attic is filled with anything Gaudi did and the appartment helps you imagining living there. The 'free photo' is a scam though!
