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.

    A little bit too drawn out of a (night) tour for my liking. The light show was short and pretty anticlimatic. The history was interesting. When booking, pay closer attention to which tour you are selecting.

    Fantastic place. We booked a Jazz concert on the roof top terrace, dinner and the sound and light show The Origins. Highly recommend!

    Beautiful house, loved the architecture and the apartment! I didn't think it is worth seeing the night show, except maybe for the guide that will tell you a few things about the history of the building; however, the information is pretty much covered by the audio guide which you will have for the visit during the day.

    Thanks Gaudi for the amazing building. I took the breakfast tour for euro 39 at 8am which come with a guide and. A up of coffee or fruit juice after the tour. I would just pay n go in without a guide. The attic is amazing with lots of exhibits.

    25 bucks - I loved the roof. It's just really cool looking. Wish I could have spent more time up there and less people, but of course it's gonna be crowded during the busy season! I took the free audio tour, but abandoned it because its distracting. I enjoy the history, but It's so visual i just wanted to focus on taking it in. The attic was cool, but quickly walked through it. The rooms are interesting but way too crowded to really enjoy. Plenty of bathrooms. Cool looking place, maybe 15€ worth of cool, but glad I checked out the roof!

    A cool place to come and see. I would recommend seeing Casa Mila and Casa Batllo on the same day as they are down the street from one another. It took us probably 1 hour to wander through the entire Casa. At the top of the structure you have a terrace like patio with awesome views of the city.

    Beautiful building. Glad we toured the inside. It’s extremely unique and well done. You won’t see this anywhere else. The rooftop is stunning with so many curves. Everything flows so naturally. It’s hard to describe in words but this place can definitely evoke feelings! Goes without saying that it was packed with tourists - kind of takes away from the beauty a little.

    Great visit! The attic was very well done, with lots of interesting information about design and architecture. The roof is beautiful. The audio guide was a nice touch in the attic and in the apartment, but the descriptions on the roof weren’t too informative, and you’d be better off just enjoying the beauty around you :)

    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 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.
