Built between 1906 and 1912 by Gaudí as a private home, today the Casa Mila is a popular museum as well as a renowned arts venue where many exhibitions are held – it has also been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since the 1980s. Located in Eixample, to the north of the city centre, the building is nicknamed La Pedrera, or ‘The Quarry’ in English, thanks to the shape and form of its rough exterior.
During your visit to the house, you’ll see both the interiors and the exterior façade designed in keeping with Gaudí’s traditional style. Its curved lines, elaborate sculptures and intricate details all catch the eye. You can explore its courtyard, attic, ground floor, roof, as well as the La Pedrera apartment, all of which are open to view and where you will learn more about Gaudí’s style.
As you arrive, check out the face of the building as it appears from the street. Queues can be long, and there’s an entry fee, but you can of course book tickets in advance from the official La Pedrera website, which will mean you can jump to the front of the line. When inside, pick up an audio guide for a small fee, and explore the building properly, discovering otherwise hidden details well worth looking out for.
Head up to the roof from which you can enjoy stunning views of the surrounding area. There are also special touches to look out for like its spiralling chimneys. In the attic, there’s a museum which explores Gaudí’s work, including drawings, plans and videos.
Inside the 18th century apartment, there are interesting historic artworks and furniture, which are in keeping with the style of the space. Even the doorknobs are original works! The ground floor meanwhile is now used as an exhibition space, and hosts regular exhibits by both local as well as global artists.
The museum is open daily and can be accessed by public transport. A short walk down the Passeig de Gràcia to Casa Mila will also take you past four major Gaudí buildings including the Casa Batllo.
You could comfortably spend an entire afternoon at Casa Mila. The list below contains a nice selection of the things you can do here:
