About Casa Mila aka La Pedrera Modernist House

Views: 638. Updated: Sep 15, 2021 by: Barcelona Travel Hacks

Casa Mila is locally known as La Pedrera which translates to the rock or stone quarry because of the undulating rough cut appearance of the facade. It is another house in Paseo de Gracia 500 metres from Casa Batllo and was the last private residence built by Gaudi.

The house was commisioned by a wealthy couple. Pere Mila was a developer and his wife, Roser Segimon, the widow of a coffee plantation owner in Guatamala. Construction began in 1906 with the demolition of the existing house and gardens on the plot. Construction was completed in 1910 and from 1912 the first floor flat was inhabited by the Mila's.

The building was sold to Josep Ballve i Pellise in 1940 when Pere Mila died, his widow Roser remained in the first floor flat until her death in 1964. The building was also used as office space, it contained a bingo hall and each floor was also subdivided into many flats. By the 1970s the building was quite delapidated.

A history of the building can be found on the official website.

Visiting Casa Mila aka La Pedrera Modernist House

In 1984 the building became part of a World Heritage Site encompassing some of Gaudi's works. Caixa Catalunya, A large Catalan bank, bought the building in 1986 and extensive renovation work was done to the main facade. The main floor, former mila residence, was restored to an exhibition and museum space. The arched loft space and roof terrace are also open as museum space.

As per Casa Batllo, this museum is oversubscribed, especially in summer and I strongly recommend buying the ticket online booking in advance. The multiple types of ticket are well explained. When I visited, I used a general 24.00 euro ticket which gave access to all areas of the museum including the Attic arches and roof terrace. Note that in particularly bad weather the roof terrace may be closed for visits for safety reasons.

I advise 1 to 2 hours to fully explore this museum and of course arrive a little before the stated start time of the visit you book online.

Tip: Take headphones for the audio guide.
