La Pedrera Tickets and Tips

La Pedrera Tickets and Tips

Tips for before, during and after your visit to Casa Milà in Barcelona.

Casa Milà, also known as la Pedrera, has been visited by over 20 million people from all over the world since 1996. On average 3,000 people visit the attraction every day. Clearly this is not an attraction to be missed when visiting Barcelona, so keep reading this article to find out everything you need to know for before, during and after your visit. You will also find out about the opening times, the different tours available, ticket prices, where to buy them and how to get there.

If you’re planning to visit this breathtaking Gaudí building, you will need somewhere to stay. Take a look at our list of central apartments in Barcelona and stay near this Gaudí masterpiece.

La Pedrera Tickets

Firstly, I am going to talk about the different types of Casa Milà tickets you can buy. There are 6 types of ticket in total. Personally, I did the La Pedrera Day and Night Tour. I loved my experience, however I don't think you need to do both the day and night tour. I didn't learn anything new on the night tour and the tour felt a little rushed. Although the rooftop was very impressive at night and the light show was wonderful to watch, I don't believe the night tour is worth double the price of the day tour alone. 

Therefore, I would recommend the day ticket alone, as you can walk around at your own pace, listen to the free audioguide as many times as you want and learn more information about the history of the building and the creator - Antoni Gaudí. You will be able to see a lot more of the building on the day tour, such as the rooftop, attic, the apartment and the exhibition area. On the night tour, you will only get a short tour of the inner courtyard on the ground floor, one part of the attic and the rooftop.

However, this is just my personal opinion! Take a look at all the tickets available so you can make your own mind up!

Casa Milà Interior and Exterior

Before you get ahead of yourself, I would suggest reading a bit about the Gaudí work before your visit. If you go with a little prior knowledge, you are sure to get more out of your visit. If you want to be prepared, read the following article and educate yourself on the architecture and of La Pedrera.

Skip the Queue

I strongly recommend that you buy your tickets online. By doing this rather than purchasing them at the ticket office, you will:

  • Avoid long waits and queuing
  • Avoid processing fees (€3/ticket)

What is the best time to visit La Pedrera?

Generally the least busy times are in the early morning (between 9:00 h and 10:00 h) and in the afternoon (after 16:00 h). If you can, it’s better to go when it’s quieter as you can take a more relaxed tour of the building with better photo opportunities.

Contact Details

You can contact La Pedrera Monday to Friday from 9am - 6pm and on weekends and holidays from 10am - 2pm.

During Your Visit

No matter what ticket you decide to go for, you will be provided with an audioguide and free wifi to provide you with an invaluable experience. You will learn about things you won’t be able to find on the Internet, so taking a tour is definitely recommended!

Services

Carrying around a lot of stuff? Don’t worry, La Pedrera has a luggage room where you can leave any belongings that you don’t want to drag around on the tour. Things you can leave here include backpacks, suitcases, prams, etc. The building is equipped with lifts to make the tour more comfortable.

Accessibility

Apart from the roof, the rest of the building has been adapted and made accessible to wheelchairs. Unfortunately, the roof terrace is not suitable for wheelchairs as Gaudí built it with constantly changing levels and lots of steps. However, so you don’t miss out completely, a platform has been built at the lift exit so you can still view the rooftop. If you have any queries about this, you can send an email to: accessibilitat@fcatalunyalapedrera.com

There is also a free wheelchair loan service for people with reduced mobility. You will need to book this in advance by emailing: accessibilitat@fcatalunyalapedrera.com

The audioguide is available in 11 languages: Catalan, Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.
