Why You Shouldn’t Miss This
Casa Mila, also called ‘La Pedrera’ or ‘the stone quarry’ is an indirect reference to its uncanny resemblance to an open quarry. Its construction began in the year 1906 and ended six years later in 1912, by Antoni Gaudi. It is an exquisite work of art, and holds great value, giving it massive recognition throughout the world. For this, it was added to UNESCO’s World Heritage List in the year 1948. In the present age, La Pedrera is home to a cultural centre that is a point of reference in Barcelona, due to it being the headquarters of the Catalunya La Pedrera Foundation, which hosts a wide array of interesting activities and also provides several areas for holding exhibitions and other public purposes. It is a flaming beacon of knowledge and creation in today's world and also serves as a source of artistic illumination, driving change in Spanish society and drawing the commitment of multifaceted people to protecting and promoting Barcelona’s artistic heritage.
The meeting point is at the attraction itself, at the main entrance of Passeig de Gracia. Once you meet your guide and gain entry, you will get to take a tour of the entire location in relative peace and quiet before the usual crowds are bustling about. Getting to tour La Pedrera in this intimate manner is an exclusive opportunity that the most people normally don’t get. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, La Pedrera is a true masterpiece that celebrates nature, indeed the structure almost seems like it sprung up organically, which perhaps had been Gaudi’s intention all along.
The place’s incredible beauty is hard to ignore, especially during the mornings when La Pedrera blooms to life, from pretty flowers dotted with dew, to lush green trees that grow all over the area. It also is home to several marine creatures that are stunning to see and their presence feels all the more natural. La Pedrera awakes, ready to greet the several thousands of visitors who desire to uncover its unique secrets. Preparations are done to open the structure to the public every morning, ensuring it is as magical as it always is. On this tour, you will also have access to the roof, from where you can take in breathtaking views of the city as well as admire the sculptures that lovingly adorn the rooftop. Take your time exploring, the apartment areas, attic and courtyards of this beloved structure, the envy of its neighbours in every way.
