Casa Mila - La Pedrera, Barcelona

4.4
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.

  • The location does require a entrance fee of 25 euros for an adult, however if you love architecture, it is completely worth the price! The design of the rooftop, to the attic, and to the apartments is impressive. There was a lot of thought and influences of nature that shine through the construction. One of the aspects that I enjoyed the most were the door handles that were designed. They not only looked awesome, it had a very specific design intent for looks and ergonomics. There are also many differently spots for great pictures and for anyone to practice taking pictures.
  • Oh my God! What a beautiful master piece of a building! I don't know what do I like more, interior or exterior! Every detail, every little thing is made with care and understanding. I would love to live there, I'm am in love. Audio guide is recorded in such a lovely way, it was great pleasure listening to it. One of a kind experience! Worth every penny!
