Milà House, known as La Pedrera, is located in the Ensanche district, on the Paseo de Gracia. Its construction took place between 1906 and 1910. It is another of the great emblematic works of the brilliant architect Antonio Gaudí and is one of the most visited in all of Spain.
This magnificent building, measuring 34 x 56 meters and covering more than 1,800 square meters, was commissioned by Milà Segimon and his wife and is distributed over six floors around an oval and circular patio, as well as an attic and a roof terrace.
The architectural complex consists of two independently attached buildings, each with a main door and a patio connected only to the ground floor. However, the façade of both buildings is common and unitary, with a load-bearing structure made up of a stone colonnade and solid brick.
This building is part of Gaudí's best creative moment during the so-called Naturalist Stage, a period characterized by a very personal and unique style in which organic shapes encompassed the entire design, breaking with conventional rigidity and showing unprecedented creative freedom.
Starting in 1987, this splendid building opened its doors to the public. Since then, it has received more than 20 million visits, making Milà House one of the 10 most visited places in all of Barcelona. In 2016, it received more than 1.2 million visits, making it the eighth most visited architectural monument in all of Spain.
Since 2013, Milà House has been part of the Catalunya-La Pedrera Foundation, which is in charge of organizing activities, visits and exhibitions.
