Designed for the wealthy businessman Pere Milà, Antoni Gaudí's modernist oddity in the center of Barcelona has become one of the city's most famous buildings. Rich with phantasmagorical features to explore, here are five interesting tidbits to start your tour!
Casa Milà's nickname – La Pedrera – arose from its similarity to a single limestone precipice. A controversial building in its time, the term wasn't always used so affectionately!
The design was heavily inspired by Gaudí's Catholic faith. He almost walked off the project when a planned statuary of the Virgin Mary was blocked by local building codes!
The rooftop terrace offers spectacular views over Barcelona and Gaudí's famous as-yet-unfinished Sagrada Familia. In summer, an open-air bar provides drinks and live music too!
The roof terrace offers plenty more to quell your curiosity than the views alone. The Medieval knights among its surreal sculptures keep cool air flowing through the building.
Gaudí wanted the building's residents to know each other. Elevators serve just every second floor, encouraging friendly encounters in the stairwells and landing!
Casa Milà's opening times are 9:00AM to 8:00PM daily from March 1st to November 3rd, and 9:00AM to 6.30PM the rest of the year (closed December 25th and January 13th to 19th). La Predrera is also worth seeing at night, though. The rooftop bar is open until midnight throughout the summer months, and there are also occasional nighttime tours and exhibitions worth keeping an eye out for.
Book tickets in advance to beat the queues, especially during peak season. Standard tickets cost upwards of €20 (audio guide included), with some special exhibitions costing more. Note that concessions are incredibly generous so bring anything that might qualify you! Children under six can go for free.
Casa Milà can be accessed by buses 7,16,17, 22, 24 and V17, or by taking the Metro lines 3 or 5 to the station Diagonal.

What People Are Saying About Casa Mila
Really impressed with our guide's knowledge. She answered all our questions and really opened our eyes to Barcelona. Highly recommend to do on your first day!
We had a brilliant experience and really enjoyed the tour. Our Tour guide Zoë, an architect that studied at the same University as Gaudi offered us insight and a different perspective on the works, the skills, the genius that is and was Gaudi. Being a former student and appreciating the unique design and character was the key in being a successful tour guide. Highly recommended and would like to do it again in 9 years when the Sagrada Familia will be finished! Let's see!!!!
Arriving between Christmas and the New Year and without any preparation I was disappointed to find the the tickets to see Sagrada Familia were sold out until the Saturday which was the day we were coming home. I have used getyourguild before in Amsterdam so looked it up online and was delighted to find tickets available with a guide for the next day. The guide used audio equipment which was just brilliant and she was extremely knowledgeable, very pleased with the whole experience from booking to rendevous and the guided tour we would definately book again and would encourage others to book!
You can get many information related to the visit that and discuss some things that you could not do in other tours
