| 0 comments

With over 1 million visitors going inside Casa Mila (aka La Pedrera) every year, it’s one of Barcelona’s top attractions, hands down.

But is it worth going inside Casa Mila? And is La Pedrera worth it?

Let’s take a deeper look at what’s on the menu to see if it’s worth buying a ticket.

Make sure to read to the end for my Pedrera video preview, it just might sway you!

Is it Worth it to Go inside La Pedrera?

Most visitors have at least an outside visit pencilled into their Barcelona itinerary plans, though it’s often a tough decision between Casa Mila and its sister mansion Casa Batllo.

⚠️  2024 Warning ⚠️: It’s strongly suggested to book your La Pedrera tickets in advance.

Sell outs are very common and lines on site can take 20-30 minutes.

Also: booking online is €3.00 cheaper per ticket – it’s just common sense.

In using the links above, you also get free-cancellation tickets to lock in your dates risk free.

It’s in the top five paid attractions in Barcelona – so let’s take a look at the prices first so we can start figuring out if it’s worth it:

La Pedrera Essential (+Audio Guide)Online Price
Adults€28.00
Senior (65+)€19.00
Students€19.00
Youth (7 – 12)€12.50
Children (0 – 6)Free

Right off the bat, La Pedrera sticks out as being considerably cheaper than Casa Batllo and Sagrada Familia, especially if you buy your Casa Mila tickets in advance online.

Of course, €25.00 isn’t chump change to many (myself included), so let’s go a bit deeper.

What’s Included in Casa Mila Tickets

I’ll start by saying that this €25.00 can easily be spent having a couple of beers and some classic Barcelona tapas on a terrace, so if you’re here for that and nothing else, that’s fine.

But of course, you would be missing out on an amazing building, so let’s break down the pros and cons here:

 ✔️ Pros

  • You get to see the inside of one of the most unique apartment blocks in the world 
  • The inside visit transports you back in time to the way aristocrats lived 100 years ago
  • The Garden of Warriors rooftop has been voted the best rooftop in the world
  • It’s got a 4.8 rating on nearly 5,000 Casa Mila Reviews
  • Arguably the best museum on Gaudi’s early work is found in the attic
  • The audio guide gives incredible detail to learn Barcelona’s history
  • It’s a World Heritage site by UNESCO
  • There are amazing summer events on the rooftop

 Cons

  • Given its popularity, the inside staircases can get crowded
  • There are so many Antoni Gaudi buildings that it’s tough to choose

So there it is: this is a wow-factor apartment block which gives you access to arguably the best rooftop in the world.

And yes, I understand that tickets aren’t the cheapest. But for me – if I come all the way to a city, I want to get my hand on the pulse at all costs, and La Pedrera is a great way to do it.

Regarding the rooftop, you can’t really put a price on a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and if it was, it certainly wouldn’t be €25.00!

And about the crowds?

At any rate, ensure that you book your La Pedrera tickets in advance as capacity is low, and especially during the high season, the mandatory time slots are usually full.

So Is Casa Mila Worth It?

Based on my experience and the reviews of almost 5,000 visitors, I can say that visiting Casa Mila is a unique, unforgettable way to spend an afternoon.
