La Pedrera also well-known as Casa Milà is a modernist building in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. It was the last private residence designed by architect Antoni Gaudí and was built between 1906 and 1910. Several structural innovations include a self-supporting stone front, columns and floors free of load-bearing walls, an underground garage and sculptural elements on the roof. La Pedrera consists of two buildings, which are structured around two courtyards that provide light to the nine storeys: basement, ground floor, mezzanine, main floor, four upper floors, and an attic. One of the most notable elements of the building is the roof, crowned with skylights, staircase exits, fans, and chimneys. All of these elements, constructed out of brick covered with lime, broken marble, or glass have a specific architectural function but are also real sculptures integrated into the building. It is declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. La Pedrera is currently the headquarters of the Fundació Catalunya-La Pedrera, which manages exhibitions and other activities at La Pedrera. Both outside and inside are incorporating ruled geometry and naturalistic elements.

    This is a nice place to visit, I particularly liked the flat roof. The audio guide was informative and there were videos inside the house that compared the various works of Gaudi, highlighting the similarities and his distinct style. The displays and videos really helped me understand his architecture better.

    Liked the interior of the building and seeing how it would of worked with cars coming in and out. Layout of the 'show flat' was good too. The current photo exhibition (July 2018) was brilliant too!

    It's summer so they should put the air-conditioning in full blast. Everyone, even the staff of Casa Mila was perspiring. Elevator going up was too slow so standing in line in the heat was unbearable. You are given a stub & are told you can have a free photo. Then, you read it properly & it says that you need to buy something first to avail of the free photo. When staff of the photo taking is asked, you are told that it's not necessary to buy anything to get your free photo. When you claim said photo where you are told to claim it, they show you 3 of your photos & say that it is a buy one take one for €10,00. You do not need to proceed with the purchase, but what a scam! If you are old, have a bad back or cannot walk long distances, going down back to the lobby is just too many steps to take. Earphones & recording device don't work properly Lastly, the woman at the area where you put back the earphones is very rude.

    I recommend that you partake in this sight in the evening to maximally enjoy the lights and cooler weather. As the hot Spanish sun sets, the full colors of Catalan modernism alight to all walks of passersby. It is possible to enjoy a tour within however advance ticket purchase is recommended. It is best to enjoy the sight from the street as Gaudí originally envisioned.

    Good tour, well done with the audio guide. Price was a bit much but really handy location. They really need to remove the first floor tour, just skip it as it doesn't fit the theme at all and is a really awkward end to the whole experience, that was the main reason for not getting 5 stars, almost took away 2 for that reason alone.

    I think the audio guide is what kept things very interesting for us. It provided a lot of necessary information to keep tours like this interesting. I recommend this place to whomever visits Barcelona.

    Nice place to visit. Architectural features n details were exquisite. As a tourist however it was very difficult to get a good look at anything. There are way too many visitors in all at the same time. Especially when there were lots of school kids when I visited and in some areas it was very noisy!

    Very special old building. You can book a late evening arrangement with champagne at the end with a guided tour. The old elevator is interesting and the show on the roof gives beautiful pictures but takes a lot of time. Definitely Gaudi

    Can't get enough Gaudi. Incredible what he can do architecturally. Tour includes roof and 2 floors below. Lots to see and marvel at. Includes the audio guide. Buy tickets online for 22 euro or 25 on site

    This is absolutely a must visit while in Barcelona. The history and architecture are incredibly and impressively stunning. The views from the roof are nothing short of amazing!

    It’s decent, but the tour is fairly boring after you leave the roof. Audio commentary is a little difficult to follow at times.

    Not very interesting inside, but rooftop is mesmerizing, especially at evenings when it lights up. I was there at jazz night, but music wasn't any good. Better opt for musical event at Casa Battlo.

    Gaudí's last commissioned building before dedicating his efforts to La Sagrada Familia. There is an expo that tells some hows and whys. Incredible to gaze a little into the mind if such a genius.
