UNESCO World Heritage Sites are often Cathedrals and monuments thought for grand occasions. La Pedrera was created to live in. But is it practical to live in Gaudí’s Modernista style, with no straight lines? – Where will I put my piano? – Asked Mrs Milà. You should learn to play the violin, answered Gaudí.
La Pedrera has refurbished an apartment, so you can see that every detail was thought through, from the handle bars, the cupboards and chairs. You will see some models of Gaudí’s buildings in the attic. And enjoy the views in between the chimney stacks of the roof terrace.

What’s not included
What will I see?
Casa Milà, was named by the Barcelona citizens as La Pedrera (the Quarry), which is how little they thought about it when it was finished in 1911. Gaudí built this residential building for the Milà family. Its sculptured form has made it a reference piece and it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The highlight of the visit is the roof terrace with its famous chimney stacks. You have views of the whole city and even a frame built by Gaudí around the view of the Sagrada Família. You will walk into the attic and feel you’re walking into the belly of a whale. In there you will find an exhibition called Espai Gaudí which has models and technical explanations of his most famous buildings.
The most interesting and unique about la Pedrera is that you can see how people used to live in these art nouveau buildings. An apartment has been restored and fully furnished in its original style, an example of how the well-to-do lived at the beginning of the 20th century.
The tour will end in Passeig de Gràcia, one of Barcelona’s most recognized boulevards. If you’re a bit of a shopper (or even an avid people-watcher), you’ll love the high-end shops and boutiques. It’s the height of international fashion.
Be sure to ask your tour guide for recommendations for the best cafes and restaurants for lunch!
