La Casa Milà or Pedrera - Information and skip-the-line tickets

is modernist and unconventional building, the work of the master architect Antoni Gaudi, was commissioned by the wealthy industrialist Pere Milà in 1906.


It is commonly known as The stone ("Stone quarry"), both names can be used.


The building presents a unique limestone facade, fully self-sufficient and has a constant curve due to Gaudí's refusal to use straight lines.

In fact, they are two different buildings structured around two bright patios. If you look at it from aerial photographs, you will see that it has an asymmetrical shape of 8.

Ceiling

There is nothing like that! The photo above doesn't do it justice. My only advice is to get your cameras ready, it's like entering another dimension.

The highlight is the wavy floors that crawl up the walls, giving way to 28 fireplaces that look like carnival masks, from Darth Vader to Grim Reaper.



From here, look out onto the patio to see Gaudí's constant vision in the curves - strangely, the curves give the building a look of shaking jelly.


The view of the city from the roof of La Pedrera it is spectacular.

Recess

Although they are built as two individual buildings, it is in the courtyards that the buildings intersect, or almost merge like two waves.


The interior is dotted with murals to floral patterns that light up perfectly throughout the day. You will spend a lot of time looking at the shapes and taking photos; after the roof, it is the most photographed place in the entire building.

The Attic

The attic originally housed the building's laundry room.

Tourists love it for 270 arcs supporting the roof. They give you a slight feeling of claustrophobie and an air of catacombs. One reader described it as a ride inside a billowing whale skeleton.

The area is now home toGaudi space, a museum of the great architect. Here you will find plastic models of his other famous works, artworks, videos, as well as a great explanation of how Gaudí let nature influence his work.



The place is divided into seven different spaces, including one entirely dedicated to La Pedrera.

Apartment

There is also the famous La Pedrera apartment where Pere Milà lived with his family. The interior remains exactly as it was the day you moved in, it is a large window in the life of the gentry (Yes, this stove in the photo is high-end!) At the beginning of the last century.
