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.

    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!

    To be honest it really didn't seem like much when we checked it out on the web but it sure proved us wrong. Boy is it a wonder to look at. The villagers apparently call it "la Pedrera" (=the stone) because it's literally ALL STONE. Given the beautiful architectural sense in the building and progressive vision it honestly makes you wonder how well ahead of time Gaudi was with this one. Word of advice. Definitely go here. Go inside or not. But at least stand outside and marvel at it.

    Went both during the day and night. The light show in the evening is short and not very interesting and you cannot see apartments, so not very good value for money. Day entry is better and sufficient in my opinion. Unless they bring down the evening price.

    Incredible experience. Highly recommend doing the premium tour. Comes with self guided audio tour of the starting on the roof and then working your way down the attic, apartments, and ground floor. Great views of the city as well. I went in the evening and it was beautiful the way the undulating roof caught the light in different ways

    If you're going to do one thing in Barcelona, make it a visit of this Gaudi house. It captures the essence of his art perfectly - it's a style in of itself. The inside is kept intact of the time period with rooms decorated with furnishings (early 1900s). I particularly enjoyed the dollhouses with detailed and delicate doll furnishings.

    I love Gaudi's work, and this happened to be the first place we visited. I would say, if you're short on time or money, you can skip this particular destination. Don't get me wrong it's beautiful but it's quite expensive for what you get. It was $25 euros per person and basically you get get access to the roof, which is visible from the street. The interior was cool, but definitely not worth the price. You can see the way the building is built and the roof top from the street and that's good enough.

    Great lunch place! Pretty big, pretty busy. And pretty hip, but not in an excluding way. The food is not cheap, but being so tasty and well presented as it is, it still comes out as good value. And creative. Or how many times have you had charcoal black or pink bread for your burger? The juicery produces drinks like Virus killer and Forever young. They are really good, but somehow a bit toned down, so don't worry about the ginger being to strong or whatever. It's not. You can come to Flax&Kale with all your allergies and diets as they have developed a comprehensive marking system covering every meal and drink on the menu. You can even use at table at the back of the menu to answer the question "what can I have if I'm a vegan and don't eat soy". Enjoy!

    Just built by Gaudi assures its quality. Very good exterior maintenance. Balconies are a piece of iron art themselves. Can't review the interior because it was close for visitors due to maintenance.

    I cannot understand why this building is a masterpiece of art! Just because gaudi has designed it?! There are lots of building that are more beautiful. What’s so special about this building?!

    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.
