Pedrera Building

The Pedrera building is a listed UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Antoni Gaudi’s most impressive pieces of work. Also known as Casa Mila the modernist building was the last private residence to be designed by Gaudi before he devoted the final years of his life to the construction of the Sagrada Familia.

Gaudi Architecture

Located in the Eixample district of the city this five-floor house was built between 1906 and 1912 and boasts an unusual façade that resembles a rock face (‘la Pedrera’ means ‘the quarry house’ in Spanish). The interior is just as ground-breaking as the exterior as inside you’ll find an array of architectural shapes that blend seamlessly into the decor, head to the attic for a look at Gaudi’s best work.

Guided Tour

Both guided, and audio tours are available around the building and explore the Espai Gaudi, the Pedrera Apartment, the Provenca, Passeig de Gracia Courtyard and the exhibition room. Tours last around 1.5 hours, but self-guided tours give you the flexibility of staying for as long or as little as you like.
