Casa Milá – La Pedrera

Casa Milá – La Pedrera

A visit to Casa Milà, popularly known as ‘La Pedrera’ (the stone quarry), a building that is a reference point in world architecture, allows you to understand and gain a deep knowledge of the work of Antoni Gaudí and, in particular, his last civil work, La Pedrera.
A visit to La Pedrera by day covers different museum areas – the Espai Gaudí and the Pedrera Apartment – which, together with the Provença and Passeig de Gràcia Courtyard, the Exhibition Room and the Roof-Terrace, make up the tour of the building. The Espai Gaudí, in the attic, offers a broad view of his work, showing the most basic traits of his clearly visual and empirical way of understanding architecture through models, audiovisuals and objects. The route around the space is divided into seven areas, one of which is devoted entirely to La Pedrera. The Pedrera Apartment recreates the home and life of a Barcelona bourgeois family of the first third of the twentieth century. It is also possible to visit the former residence of the Milà family, which houses the Temporary Exhibition Room, as long as there is an exhibition.

Casa Milà is the only Gaudí interpretation centre in Barcelona devoted to providing an understanding of the work of this architectural genius. A total of 4,500 m2 can be visited, spread over five floors. The only areas that cannot be visited are the private homes and offices that remain in the building.

Gaudí believed that nature is like a large open book; one we should make the effort to read and interpret. With this tour you will experience an unforgettable journey through different areas of the building: Passeig de Gràcia and Provença Courtyards, Espai Gaudí (the attic) and the Roof-Terrace (The Apartment not included), in which the highlight will be a videomapping at the Roof-Terrace of La Pedrera. We use the unique architecture of this space to present a magnificient audiovisual show which allows to make an unforgettable journey to the origins of life, the essence of Gaudí’s architecture, with multiple projections in the “badalots” (stairwells), special lighting and a soundtrack that will accompany it all.

Enjoy the Gaudi’s city and come to visit Barcelona!
