 Casa Milà (La Pedrera) is considered one of the most outstanding buildings of the 20th century because of its spectacular façade and unique rooftop. An iconic Barcelona landmark, it's one of the finest examples of the great architect Antoni Gaudí’s work. Enjoy its revolutionary design, both from the inside and outside.

The last residential building designed by Gaudí was so ahead of its time that when it was completed in 1910 it was ridiculed by bourgeois neighbors, who feared it would lower the price of land in the area. Now a Unesco World Heritage Site and top sightseeing destination, the building seems to defy the concept of a straight line. It ripples around the corner of Passeig de Gracia and Carrer Provença, distinctive ironwork twisting across the tops of its balconies. Limestone from local areas was used to build the undulating self-standing facade and locals began calling the building la Pedrera, or stone quarry.

Designed to let in as much natural light as possible, Casa Milà is built around two courtyards. True to character, Gaudí gave as much attention to detail to the inside as the outside of the house, focusing not only on structure but also on decoration and furniture. You can get a glimpse of what life was like in this modernist masterpiece by visiting the restored apartment of original owners Pere Milà and Roser Segimon. The attic, former laundry and drying area, now houses Espai Gaudí and offers a view into the master architect’s mind, using models and audiovisuals to portray his methods.

The crowning jewel is the rooftop. Gaudí cleverly disguised practical aspects of the building, such as vents, stairway exits and water tanks, as sculptures made of limestone, tiles, broken glass, and even bottoms of champagne bottles. It is known as the “Garden of Warriors” due to the chimneys resembling medieval warriors. The roof offers some of the best views in the posh neighborhood of the Eixample.

A visit to Casa Milà is essential for understanding Gaudí. It is a reference point for architects and one of Barcelona’s most beloved buildings.
