Also known as La Pedrera, the “stone quarry”, Casa Mila is a modernist building in Barcelona. Designed by famous architect, Anton Gaudi, Casa Mila is one of the most visited attractions in Barcelona.
Although located close to Casa Batllo in the Illa de Discordia area of the city, Casa Mila is a completely different experience. Expect a visit to Casa Mila to take a little longer than a visit to Casa Batllo as Casa Mila has its own art gallery. Keen to give its visitors a truly memorable experience, Casa Mila also offers early morning tours and a late night music and light show. Buying your Casa Mila ticket as part of a tour of Gaudi’s great works or a larger Barcelona tour can save you money and time. We’ve included our pick of the best Casa Mila tickets below.
Thousands of visitors descend on Casa Mila every year, desperate to see this famous building in real life. Casa Mila was Gaudi's last completed commission and is a UNESCO World heritage site. Casa Mila has many special architectural details you will see nowhere else in the world, such as its double courtyard and statuesque rooftop ventilation units.
Casa Mila launched a new, immersive audio guide in 2017. The guide has sensors that recognise which part of the building you're in to provide relevant, interesting information on what's right in front of you.
During your visit to Casa Mila, you will visit the main floor exhibition rooms to learn all about Gaudi and architectural Modernism in Barcelona. On the main floor you can also enjoy Casa Mila's unique floral motifs and inscriptions. On the ground floor you will find cafes and shops that are well worth a visit.
There are no straight lines or sharp corners in nature. Nothing is art if it does not come from nature.”
Casa Mila was constructed from two houses with two courtyards and has nine levels. Unlike Gaudi's other buildings, Casa Mila is the natural colour of stone without any of Gaudi's magical, colourful additions. A stunning example of organic architecture, Casa Mila has the same façade on the inside and the outside, creating a seamless, infinite design. Casa Mila was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984.
The first floor of Casa Mila is known as the Belletage, or “beautiful floor” and was originally the domain of the building's owners. Today, this floor is home to the Art Museum of Fundacio Catalunya. Incredibly, it is possible to transform the shape of the Belletage with little effort, as Gaudi used ground-breaking design to construct a floor without internal load-bearing walls. The roof of Casa Mila is also quite spectacular. Stone chimneys and ventilation shafts are sculpted into otherworldly figures that look out over the city.
Visiting Casa Mila can take as little as forty minutes and as long as a few hours, it's really up to you. A visit to Casa Mila is the perfect way to spend an afternoon in Barcelona. Once you have your ticket, you can visit at a time that is suitable for you and stay as long as you like. If you have any interest in the Modernist movement in Barcelona, unusual architecture, or you simply enjoy beautiful sights, Casa Mila is a great choice. If you find yourself short on time or money you can visit Casa Mila from outside but we can guarantee that once you're there, you'll want to go in!
Casa Mila offers a number of tours at different times of day.
The Awakening of La Pedrera is an early bird morning tour that starts at 8am, before the building opens to the public.
Gaudi's La Pedrera: The Origins takes place between 7pm and 9pm, after most visitors have left for the evening. The night time tour finishes on the rooftop terrace and includes an immersive audio visual experience with music and projections, a glass of cava and Italian sweetmeats.
La Pedrera by day and night allows multiple entry to Casa Mila so you can experience both a regular daytime tour and Gaudi's La Pedrera: The Origins special night time tour.
A regular adult daytime ticket to visit Casa Mila is €22.00 if purchased online. If purchased in person at the box office tickets are €25.00.
