5 architectural facts about the Casa Milà

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!

Its nickname means "The Quarry"

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!

It was intended to be religiously symbolic

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!

Visitors can see the Sagrada Família from the roof

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!

Even the air-conditioning is worth seeing!

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.

Elevator access is limited for the best reason

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 Mila: Our Tips

When to visit?

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.

Booking tickets

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.

How to get there?

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

Interesting building to see - nice to skip the line

Buying a ticket in advance really helps. The queue to buy a ticket was very long (aug 2017). The Casa Mila has only one apartment one can visit plus you can see an exhibition over Gaudi in the attic. The roof top is however open for visits and it is a thrilling walk, up and down. Nothing for people that are scared of hights though.

Very efficient way to see everything you need to see in barcelona!

It was very easy to get around and pick the only stops you wish to see. Buses really come about 10mins from each other so no need to worry about running after the bus thats about to leave. Make sure to pre-book tickets to attractions way in advance, sagrada familia and park guell were sold out and only way to get in is through expensive group tours.
