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
It was a fun way to see the city. The bus was in good condition and even on the weekend the bus wasn't too crowded. Staff is nice and there's always someone available. Too bad we could barely use it on Sunday, since the protesters were blocking a few stops.
Easy to find, easy to board and get off. An ideal way to have a good overview of the City! Great way to start your visit!
This was a wonderful way to see the city. We got off at major sights to take pictures before the crowds and even had an awesome seafood lunch overseeing the beach. Very professional service. Highly reccomend it.
It was easy to get on the first bus with the voucher. The two routes covered most of the most popular tourist areas. We used the red and green routes and were satisfied with the information given and the places we saw.
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.
