Casa Mila

Biomorphic mansion on the Passeig de Gracia

Built as a vast private residence for wealthy developer Pere Mila and his even-more-minted missus, Rosario Segimon, Casa Mila is Gaudi’s second most famous structure after La Sagrada Familia church.

The house’s cliff-like walls immediately earned it the nickname La Pedrera, or ‘The Quarry’, amongst locals; and, although some may have scoffed in the past, this rocky undulating facade has become one of the most recognisable anywhere in the world. Indeed it’s one of the seven UNESCO listed works by Gaudi in Barcelona.

It’s well worth the ticket admission to take a look inside the Casa Mila with its two beautiful internal courtyards, the reconstructed ‘La Pedrera apartment’ and – best of all – access to the rooftop with its surreal chimneys (typical Gaudi!) and views over Barcelona.

Opening Hours

The house is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 6pm, and Saturdays and Sundays (plus holidays) from 10am to 2pm.

Latest Reviews of Casa Mila

  • "Architectural rollercoaster ride" - by Reece
    Like all of Gaudi's buildings it's a mindboggling architectural rollercoaster ride. I prefer the colours and inventiveness of Casa Batllo but this boasts a more impressive scale

  • "My favourite Gaudi experience" - by James S.
    The Casa Mila is probably my favourite of the Gaudi experiences in Barcelona because you really get a feel of what apartments would like during the Modernista era. The interior of the flat which visitors are shown into is really well preserved and offers a fascinating glimpse into the past. On the roof you can get up close to Gaudi's chimneys and there is also one floor devoted to the architect's models etc. for a more technical insight into his work.

  • "Phenomenal building" - by Tristan
    Phenomenal building. The outside of La Pedrera is a little grey but the curves are an amazing slap in the face to conventional architecture. We had to queue for about an hour to get in but it was worth it as the views from the roof over the Passeig de Gracia are tremendous.
