A cool place to come and see. I would recommend seeing Casa Mila and Casa Batllo on the same day as they are down the street from one another. It took us probably 1 hour to wander through the entire Casa. At the top of the structure you have a terrace like patio with awesome views of the city.
This is a nice place to visit, I particularly liked the flat roof. The audio guide was informative and there were videos inside the house that compared the various works of Gaudi, highlighting the similarities and his distinct style. The displays and videos really helped me understand his architecture better.
Great visit! The attic was very well done, with lots of interesting information about design and architecture. The roof is beautiful. The audio guide was a nice touch in the attic and in the apartment, but the descriptions on the roof weren’t too informative, and you’d be better off just enjoying the beauty around you :)
Beautiful building. Glad we toured the inside. It’s extremely unique and well done. You won’t see this anywhere else. The rooftop is stunning with so many curves. Everything flows so naturally. It’s hard to describe in words but this place can definitely evoke feelings! Goes without saying that it was packed with tourists - kind of takes away from the beauty a little.
I think the audio guide is what kept things very interesting for us. It provided a lot of necessary information to keep tours like this interesting. I recommend this place to whomever visits Barcelona.
Good tour, well done with the audio guide. Price was a bit much but really handy location. They really need to remove the first floor tour, just skip it as it doesn't fit the theme at all and is a really awkward end to the whole experience, that was the main reason for not getting 5 stars, almost took away 2 for that reason alone.
Liked the interior of the building and seeing how it would of worked with cars coming in and out. Layout of the 'show flat' was good too. The current photo exhibition (July 2018) was brilliant too!
I recommend that you partake in this sight in the evening to maximally enjoy the lights and cooler weather. As the hot Spanish sun sets, the full colors of Catalan modernism alight to all walks of passersby. It is possible to enjoy a tour within however advance ticket purchase is recommended. It is best to enjoy the sight from the street as Gaudí originally envisioned.
It's summer so they should put the air-conditioning in full blast. Everyone, even the staff of Casa Mila was perspiring. Elevator going up was too slow so standing in line in the heat was unbearable. You are given a stub & are told you can have a free photo. Then, you read it properly & it says that you need to buy something first to avail of the free photo. When staff of the photo taking is asked, you are told that it's not necessary to buy anything to get your free photo. When you claim said photo where you are told to claim it, they show you 3 of your photos & say that it is a buy one take one for €10,00. You do not need to proceed with the purchase, but what a scam! If you are old, have a bad back or cannot walk long distances, going down back to the lobby is just too many steps to take. Earphones & recording device don't work properly Lastly, the woman at the area where you put back the earphones is very rude.
To be honest it really didn't seem like much when we checked it out on the web but it sure proved us wrong. Boy is it a wonder to look at. The villagers apparently call it "la Pedrera" (=the stone) because it's literally ALL STONE. Given the beautiful architectural sense in the building and progressive vision it honestly makes you wonder how well ahead of time Gaudi was with this one. Word of advice. Definitely go here. Go inside or not. But at least stand outside and marvel at it.
Can't get enough Gaudi. Incredible what he can do architecturally. Tour includes roof and 2 floors below. Lots to see and marvel at. Includes the audio guide. Buy tickets online for 22 euro or 25 on site
Very special old building. You can book a late evening arrangement with champagne at the end with a guided tour. The old elevator is interesting and the show on the roof gives beautiful pictures but takes a lot of time. Definitely Gaudi
This is the first one of Gaudí’s buildings that we toured and it was a great experience. We went there mid afternoon (around 3pm) on Easter Sunday and it was quite busy without being overly crowded. The roof is a definite standouts with the chimneys designed to look like Gaudís own unique kind of giants looking over the house and city. Some of them have cool features/sound effects such as water, air, and the chimneys reciting poems about giants in both English and Catalan. We stayed on the roof for quite awhile as it offers beautiful views of the city as well as some awesome ornate detailing. The house itself was also very cool. We loved learning about the unique doorknobs and furniture (all hand formed to perfectly fit the body), as well as the historical information. Some tips; make sure to read the fine print on the “free picture” slip you get. It’s only free with a purchase, so not free. We didn’t read that and had to turn down the sales pitch of 10€ for two already printed prints. Bad for the environment! Overall a very cool building and a definite must while in Barcelona.
If you're going to do one thing in Barcelona, make it a visit of this Gaudi house. It captures the essence of his art perfectly - it's a style in of itself. The inside is kept intact of the time period with rooms decorated with furnishings (early 1900s). I particularly enjoyed the dollhouses with detailed and delicate doll furnishings.
Incredible experience. Highly recommend doing the premium tour. Comes with self guided audio tour of the starting on the roof and then working your way down the attic, apartments, and ground floor. Great views of the city as well. I went in the evening and it was beautiful the way the undulating roof caught the light in different ways
Absolute marvel of a structure and design. A must see in Barcelona. We took some incredible photos on the terrace as well as within. Also our tour guide, Robert was fantastic!
Of course a landmark to visit... Did the night tour and liked it; NOT because of the light show (I found it too general and not that interesting), but the guided tour and seeing the colours inside at night was worth it! (We were told there is no guided tour during the day!?) And also at night, not a lot of visitors roaming around.
Can't recommend Casa Mila enough. Really friendly staff and just a lovely place to visit. A real gem. Roof top is excellent, the audio guide takes you round every floor of this beautiful building.
I love Gaudi's work, and this happened to be the first place we visited. I would say, if you're short on time or money, you can skip this particular destination. Don't get me wrong it's beautiful but it's quite expensive for what you get. It was $25 euros per person and basically you get get access to the roof, which is visible from the street. The interior was cool, but definitely not worth the price. You can see the way the building is built and the roof top from the street and that's good enough.
A gorgeous way to spend a few hours in Barcelona. Take your time and really look around - start at the top and work your way down. If you don’t like elevators, take the stairs because they are really small. A really gorgeous experience!
Stay more than the usual 25 minutes. Stare at it from the outside. People have been walking around this place for years and years without staring at it. You do it. Stay and walk around. Picture Gaudi next to you looking at it.
The house outside is beautiful! Its curves and organic ornaments are astonishing. I didn't go inside because will find €25 entrance way too much to visit a house.
This place truly blew me away. Definitely worth going to and the view is amazing! I definitely recommend this place if you're a Star Wars fan.
Great lunch place! Pretty big, pretty busy. And pretty hip, but not in an excluding way. The food is not cheap, but being so tasty and well presented as it is, it still comes out as good value. And creative. Or how many times have you had charcoal black or pink bread for your burger? The juicery produces drinks like Virus killer and Forever young. They are really good, but somehow a bit toned down, so don't worry about the ginger being to strong or whatever. It's not. You can come to Flax&Kale with all your allergies and diets as they have developed a comprehensive marking system covering every meal and drink on the menu. You can even use at table at the back of the menu to answer the question "what can I have if I'm a vegan and don't eat soy". Enjoy!
