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
The buses were frequent and the staff extra friendly. I took the same tour in London and this was by far better!
Amazing trip. Unfortunately the cabriolet mini was not available but as it was bit of gloomy day it was probably for the better. Picked this trip as there is not much walking involved. The helicopter ride is amazing and really do recomend doing it well worth the money. You will have a small walk through the museum and got to a bar Down la rambla and then off on the boat. It was a great experience you will not being disappointed
and then plan what you want to stop and see in more detail. Plenty of buses operating so easy to get on and off at will. Useful commentary in choice of language, bit too much unnecessary music too loud on some of the audio tape, I would rather have had silence in between information bites, personally.
The skip the line audio tour was the perfect way to visit Casa Mila at your own pace. You select your language preference and it provides an opportunity to pause, rewind and review any item you might miss during a live guided tour. Purchasing online is easy and the wait line was much shorter than queuing for ticket purchase on site; plus by the time you wait to buy tickets on site, there is a real chance that they will be sold out. I highly recommend purchasing through Get Your Guide to secure a tour spot and time. Be sure to confirm with uniformed staff the appropriate waiting line upon arrival to Casa Mila.
Some confusion at the beginning as there are two different buses marketed by Get Your Guide, but they both run often and catching the right bus is not a problem. Bus stops are clearly marked, the earpiece commentary is available in many languages and sound quality was clear. Be sure to dress for the weather - layers are good - and probably best to do your research about the stops on each route so you know where you want to get off and how much time to spend so your day is most efficient.
