Casa Milà, popularly known as ‘La Pedrera’, is one of the most famous and iconic buildings by the renowned architect Antonio Gaudí (1852–1926). This unique complex, constructed between 1906 and 1912 was originally despised by the residents of the affluent Passeig de Gracia and the nickname La Pedrera (meaning the Quarry) signaled their dislike of this ground-breaking design.
However over time residents and visitors to Barcelona have grown to love the unique style and in 1984 Casa Mila was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. Today it is the headquarters of Fundació Catalunya-La Pedrera and houses a popular cultural centre.
This great skip-the-line ticket allows you to explore the Casa Milà at your leisure.
These are the 4 main areas of Casa Milà (La Pedrera) that are waiting to be explored.
Functional elements of an everyday building are given a one-of-a-kind Gaudi twist on the Casa Mila roof. The Chimneys, the skylights, the ventilation shafts and the stairwells are given unique facades to blend harmoniously with the rest of the building.
The attic of Casa Mila has been transformed into Espai Gaudi. Alongside the water tanks and the washing lines you will find a range of exhibits designed to help you interpret the works of Gaudi.
The La Pedrera Apartment:
Here you can see the original La Pedrera, the apartment commissioned by a wealthy local couple shows the opulence of a bourgeois Barcelona family coupled with vision of Antonio Gaudi.
This large open space on the first floor is now used as an exhibition space and will be open whenever there is a current exhibition.
I recommend a must-buy audioguide. This will greatly enrich your impressions of Gaudi. It is a pity that not all floors and apartments were available for review....Svetlana Chernova
