Casa Mila (La Pedrera)

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by Jehcekah on January 31, 2003

Gaudi's Apartment Building

Entrance Fee: Eight Euro

The apartment building is arranged into three sections: the museum, the rooftop, and the apartments.

The museum highlights all of Gaudi's major works and touches little on the life of the man behind the mosaics and crazy architecture. The most impressive part of the tour is the rooftop, which allows you to get many panoramic views of the city. The chimneys and sunlight make for some interesting photographs up there.

Next you go into the apartments, which are split by half museum and half representation of life in the 1920's in Spain. The rooms are very small and the corridors can get quite crowded with visitors. There are many stairs which lead to the rooftop, but the climb isn't impossible. There is a gift shop on the lower level, and you are required to leave any bags at the coat-check.
