La Pedrera by day
The pinnacle of Gaudí’s work
When Antoni Gaudí was at the peak of his career, he designed La Pedrera, his last residential building. This is one of his most innovative landmarks and has become a work of art in its own right. The Casa Milà, popularly known as La Pedrera (Catalan for quarry), is a unique building designed by Antoni Gaudí (1852-1926) and built between 1906 and 1912. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984.
- La Pedrera is considered one of the most outstanding buildings of the 20th century because of its spectacular façade and unique rooftop. An iconic Barcelona landmark, it is one of the finest examples of the work of the great architect, Antoni Gaudí.
- The visit includes four of the building’s most significant areas:
- The rooftop: with its sinuous forms and changes in level, this is one of Gaudí’s most groundbreaking spaces. The stairwells and magically shaped chimneys are the most eye-catching features and have become iconic symbols of Gaudí and Barcelona.
- The Espai Gaudí: located in one of the most distinctive spaces designed by Gaudí: the attic in La Pedrera. It houses the only exhibition dedicated to Gaudí’s life and work which showcases the architect’s creations through models and plans, objects and designs, photographs and videos.
- The Pedrera period apartment: a recreation of an early-20th century bourgeois family apartment which gives us an insight into the way they lived, with period furniture and household equipment of the period and decorative elements designed by Gaudí.
- The courtyards: which showcase Gaudí’s innovations, show how nature inspired the entire building.
- The building is currently the headquarters of the Fundació Catalunya- La Pedrera and is home to one of the city’s main cultural facilities which hosts a wide range of activities and contains different exhibition spaces that are open to the public.
