Top sights in Barcelona
Designed for the wealthy businessman Pere Milà, Antoni Gaudí's modernist oddity in the center of Barcelona has become one of the city's most famous buildings. Rich with phantasmagorical features to explore, here are five interesting tidbits to start your tour!
Casa Milà's nickname – La Pedrera – arose from its similarity to a single limestone precipice. A controversial building in its time, the term wasn't always used so affectionately!
The design was heavily inspired by Gaudí's Catholic faith. He almost walked off the project when a planned statuary of the Virgin Mary was blocked by local building codes!
The rooftop terrace offers spectacular views over Barcelona and Gaudí's famous as-yet-unfinished Sagrada Familia. In summer, an open-air bar provides drinks and live music too!
The roof terrace offers plenty more to quell your curiosity than the views alone. The Medieval knights among its surreal sculptures keep cool air flowing through the building.
Gaudí wanted the building's residents to know each other. Elevators serve just every second floor, encouraging friendly encounters in the stairwells and landing!
Casa Milà's opening times are 9:00AM to 8:00PM daily from March 1st to November 3rd, and 9:00AM to 6.30PM the rest of the year (closed December 25th and January 13th to 19th). La Predrera is also worth seeing at night, though. The rooftop bar is open until midnight throughout the summer months, and there are also occasional nighttime tours and exhibitions worth keeping an eye out for.
Book tickets in advance to beat the queues, especially during peak season. Standard tickets cost upwards of €20 (audio guide included), with some special exhibitions costing more. Note that concessions are incredibly generous so bring anything that might qualify you! Children under six can go for free.
Casa Milà can be accessed by buses 7,16,17, 22, 24 and V17, or by taking the Metro lines 3 or 5 to the station Diagonal.

What people are saying about Casa Mila
We saw Sagrada Familia from the outside on our first visit to Barcelona, so we wan to go inside of this monumental church as well as other famous Gaudi buildings and this tour did not disappoint. Our guide for the Sagrada Familia tour was well versed in its history and spoke clearly and kept our fairly large group together and on schedule (not an easy task). Our second guide for the tour of Park Guill and other Gaudi Buildings was also was very well versed in the subject and spoke excellent English, but because that part of the tour was given in both English and Spanish, it was a bit more confusing at times to understand. After touring Park Guill, the last part of the tour involves walking on the outside of two of Gaudi's downtown buildings. While that is interesting, if you don't take the extra tour of the inside of at least one of the buildings (we did), the time and energy spent to see the outside may not be worth the effort. Be advised, there is a LOT of walking on this tour!
HAd a wonderful guided tour of Barcelona and whether it was just bby the bus, walking or actually being in each spot of this well rounded tour, the details were awesome and the hidden gems like Eg. the Lift at the Columbus column, the Barcelona kiss etc that were shared really were true (I asked other friends abt some of these and they didnt know!). The skip the line worked exactly like it is supposed to and adequate time provided. The small bus was perfect and service was awesome. Miguel, our tour guide is the best, funny and wants to spread all info he has. I later took a tour of my own across all the places that we had to see just by the bus, but again Miguel's guidance helped. Overall you don't feel tired at the end of it and return with a great experience.
Go in comfortable clothing for you will be walking and going up steps. Overall the audio was helpful in understanding the history of the house & design. View at the top is amazing! You can buy the tickets the day of but buy it on the app and select the closest time you will arrive for if you get there too early , you have to wait until the selected time. Mobile app ticket que is shorter than the regular line. Very close (walkable distance) from Casa Batllo. I went to Casa Batllo first and got the Casa Pedrera tickets while walking to the house.
I was really very nice surprised how it works. I especially appreciated the warning of the system about comming activity and the possibility of downloading the voucher to the mobile phone. Perfect overview, maps, contacts. All info in one click! I strongly recommend to all active travellers.
Monsterrat was amazing ! Beautiful scenery , church interesting history ! The tour to Sagrada Família was very interesting but lots of standing , which after the Monsterrat tour was tiring ! Better to do them separately ! Tour guides were great very knowledgeable
