Create an itinerary including Casa Mila - La Pedrera
To see one of architect Antoni Gaudí’s most controversial designs, visit Casa Mila - La Pedrera, known for its undulating stone facade and the wrought-iron decorations on its balconies and windows. Declared a World Heritage Site in 1984, the building features some of the most innovative elements of its time, including underground parking. Perhaps the most remarkable element of the building is the roof, which features enormous chimneys designed to look like medieval knights. The architect’s elaborate plans for the roof included adding a huge statue of the Virgin, but when the businessman who commissioned the building said no, Gaudí resigned from the project. Today, the roof is frequently the site of music performances. Check online for an accurate schedule of special events and available tours. A visit to Casa Mila - La Pedrera represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Barcelona road trip planning site to plot your vacation.

  • Really nice to experience a "old" liviging building and see how the quality of life was near to our days and that Gaudi had it all in mind!

  • Not far from Casa Batllo. About 200 yards away and local to the metro yellow line. We were there on a public holiday and it appeared closed.

  • This moved me! It embodies the feeling of Barcelona. You can see and feel the influence in all the architecture. From the hotel I stayed in to the streets of Barcelona. If you haven't seen it, you should. Even the way they use the money collected. It supports many inspiring non profit projects for the community 👏 we could learn a lot from this in the United States
  • The house was wonderful! But i expected a bit more for the money I paid. You can see only the rooftop, attic and top floor, which has been preserved in the old style. It was over too quickly. All in all, it was cool to see!
