Casa Milà - La Pedrera: Fast Track Entrance with Audioguide
An exemplary highlight that showcases Antoni Gaudi's brilliance, Casa Mila or La Pedrera as it is commonly known as is one of the most beautiful Modernisme buildings in Barcelona. These tickets allow you to visit Casa Mila any time through the day and enjoy the stunning architecture that the building is famous for without having to wait in winding queues.
Why You Shouldn't Miss This
Built between 1906 and 1912, Casa Mila is the last private residential building designed by Gaudi. Its undulating, rough-hewn appearance has led to the locals calling the building La Pedrera or "open quarry". Though today the building occupies an elevated position within Barcelona, its progressive design often led to it being a controversial aspect of the city's urban landscape.
Two buildings make up Casa Mila, each built around a courtyard next to each other, thus forming a rough figure 8 shape. The outer surface of the buildings is covered with an undulating stone facade that forms waves around the building, twisting wrought iron balconies and windows designed by Josep Maria Jujol. The roof of Casa Mila is perhaps its most notable element - crowned with skylights, staircase exits, fans, and chimneys.
Your tickets allow you to skip the ticket line and head straight to the entrance gate. The ticket remains valid through the day and you can visit the landmark anytime between 9:00 AM and 8:00 PM when the last entry is granted.
Unconventional though Casa Mila's appearance may be, the actual purpose of the structure is as conventional as it can be. After all, the building is, first and foremost, residential in nature. It's hard imagining that the place was designed to be anyone's home, but as you walk through Casa Mila's lavishly adorned lobbies or the sprawling courtyards peppered with Gaudi's signature embellishments, living here seems like a dream that could come true. Touring the Casa Mila by day involves visiting two different parts of the museum - the Espai Gaudi and the Pedera Apartment. The former includes a broad showcase of Guadi’s work and is divided into sections dedicated to different projects and shows his life in broad strokes. The latter is a fascinating recreation of the home of a bourgeois family in Barcelona from the first third of the 20th century.
Perhaps the true treasure of the building is the view from the rooftop that is decorated with distinctive corkscrew style chimneys, synonymous with the building itself. The view of Barcelona's skyline from the top of the structure is nothing short of breathtaking so any time spent here is time well spent. Enhance your trip with the free audio guide included on this tour which will give you information on the main areas of the building, the sites you can visit and the architect himself. Once the ninety minute long commentary that is available in multiple languages on the audio guide runs out, you are more than free to explore on your own.
