La Pedrera by day, an essential visit for understanding Gaudí
A visit to Casa Milà, popularly known as ‘La Pedrera’ (the stone quarry), a building that is a reference point in world architecture, allows you to understand and gain a deep knowledge of the work of Antoni Gaudí and, in particular, his last civil work, La Pedrera.
A visit to La Pedrera by day covers to different museum areas – the Espai Gaudí and the Pedrera Apartment – which, together with the Provença and Passeig de Gràcia Courtyard, the Exhibition Room and the Roof-Terrace, make up the tour of the building. The Espai Gaudí, in the attic, offers a broad view of his work, showing the most basic traits of his clearly visual and empirical way of understanding architecture through models, audiovisuals and objects. The route around the space is divided into seven areas, one of which is devoted entirely to La Pedrera. The Pedrera Apartment recreates the home and life of a Barcelona bourgeois family of the first third of the twentieth century. It is also possible to visit the former residence of the Milà family, which houses the Temporary Exhibition Room, as long as there is an exhibition.
Casa Milà is the only Gaudí interpretation centre in Barcelona devoted to providing an understanding of the work of this architectural genius. A total of 4,500 m2 can be visited, spread over five floors. The only areas that cannot be visited are the private homes and offices that remain in the building.

La Pedrera, a masterpiece of nature
To contemplate nature and all its details is to discover a fantastic world. La Pedrera is not a building made of columns, staircases, walls and ceilings, it is a natural creation, with landscapes inhabited in other times by prehistoric creatures and leafy plants. Every corner of the building conceals a living past which we can still enjoy today.
Accompanied by a guide from La Pedrera, you will follow a route around the building with other eyes, playing at discovering the things that inspired Antoni Gaudí to create this architectural treasure. The visit includes all the areas open to the public: the Courtyards, the Roof-terrace, the Espai Gaudí (located in the attic) and the La Pedrera Apartment.
A unique chance to discover the way Gaudí’s supreme work was created.
