Do you want to visit Casa Milà before anyone else? Would you like to walk on La Pedrera’s Roof-terrace on your own? From 1 June you will be able to do it in the guided visit “The awakening of La Pedrera”.
La Pedrera wakes up every day and gets ready to welcome thousands of people who want to discover the secrets of this unique building.
First thing in the morning, while the preparations are being made to open the house to the public, the natural features in each area awaken: flowers, trees, marine animals...
La Pedrera is a creation of nature that wakes with the first rays of sunlight.
We offer you a tour of the building before it opens to the public and in a small group. As well as discovering the different areas of the house, you will find out what inspired Antoni Gaudí to create this architectural treasure.
“The awakening of La Pedrera” includes the whole building (Roof-terrace, Espai Gaudí (the attic), The Apartment and Courtyards), as well as some areas which are not on the normal tour.
Casa Milà, popularly known as «La Pedrera» (the stone quarry), an ironic allusion to the resemblance of its façade to an open quarry, was constructed between 1906 and 1912 by Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926). For its uniqueness, artistic and heritage value has received major recognition and in 1984 was inscribed on UNESCO World Heritage List, for its exceptional universal value. Nowadays is the headquarters of Fundació Catalunya-La Pedrera and houses a cultural centre that is a reference in Barcelona for the range of activities it organises and the different spaces for exhibitions and other public uses it contains.
