Meet your expert English-speaking guide outside Casa Mila, and enjoy skip-the-line entrance for your private tour of the last private residence designed by Barcelona’s beloved architect, Antonio Gaudi. First admire the incredible self-supporting facade of the building, which gives it the nickname La Pedrera – or ‘quarry’. It is more like a sculptural wave, rising 30 meters high with iron railings molded into abstract sculptures resembling seaweed. The Casa Mila was built between 1906-1912 for the Mila family to live in and rent out other apartments on the exclusively fashionable Passeig de Gracia. This was the most important avenue in Barcelona, popular with the aspirational bourgeoisie, and with the city’s finest theatres, iconic buildings, cinemas, expensive shops, and exclusive restaurants and cafes.
Enter Casa Mila and begin your exploration of this exquisite building filled with bright colors and Modernist eccentricities typical of Gaudi. Your tour covers 4,500 square meters over five floors. You’ll explore the beautiful Flower and Butterfly Courtyards that provide light to the whole building. You’ll wander up the iconic staircases, admiring the rounded walls and bright artistic murals. See the tenant’s apartment and immerse yourself in early twentieth-century daily life, with restored rooms and furniture of the era.
Explore the extraordinary Whale Attic – so called for its whale-bone-like structure with 270 catenary arches. Enjoy the in-depth Guadi exhibition here, to learn all about his incredible contributions to Barcelona, before stepping out onto the piece de resistance: the Warrior Rooftop, with its amazing statues, nicknamed the warriors, and spectacular 360-degree views of the city. With so many displays and exhibitions, your tour ends inside the Casa Mila, so you can continue to explore this fascinating and interactive museum space at your leisure.
