Gaudi's Pedrera - Casa Mila
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.
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.
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. The latter is a fascinating recreation of the home of a bourgeois family in Barcelona from the first third of the 20th century.
