Casa Mila is a treat for Gaudi fans. Gaudi’s architectural prowess gets reflected in this modernist masterpiece.
Casa Mila attracts more than a million tourists every year. That’s almost 3000 tourists every day.
To avoid the crowd, it makes sense to buy your Casa Mila tickets online. There is one more advantage of buying your Casa Mila tickets online – you don’t have to pay the window surcharge, thus saving 3 Euros on every ticket.
Unfortunately, when you try to buy Casa Mila tickets, the numerous ticket options are sure to confuse you.
A confused traveler is confounded with questions such as “Should I get the open date tickets?” or ‘Should I get the fixed time and date tickets?”
We have been there, and know that the decision to buy the right ticket isn’t easy.
Let’s now look at the different types of Casa Mila tickets available. For each type of ticket, we have also provided our recommendation.
Note: Casa Mila was the original name of this building but since the locals thought it looked like a ‘stone quarry,’ they started calling it ‘La Pedrera’ in Spanish. Over the years the nickname has stuck. Since both Casa Mila and La Pedrera refer to the same building we have used the names interchangeably in this article.
Casa Mila tickets
Tickets for Casa Mila are available at the venue. However, to avoid the risk of not getting a ticket – as they only sell a limited number of tickets in a day – we suggest buying the tickets online.

They cited lack of motivation as their reason.

Casa Mila tickets in advance?
Should tourists buy their Casa Mila tickets in advance? The short answer is yes, they should.
Buying tickets in advance saves you from two situations which you have no control over.
Situation 1: With more than 3000 tourists visiting La Pedrera daily, it can get crowded. The more the number of tourists wanting to get in, the longer the lines. By booking your tickets in advance, you avoid waiting in these lines and walk right in.
Situation 2: Casa Mila tickets are timed – in half hour slots. You can enter Casa Mila only at the time mentioned on your ticket. A tourist who doesn’t buy their Casa Mila ticket in advance, may reach the ticketing window at the venue and find out that tickets for the next three hours are sold out. In such a situation he/she will have to wait for 3 more hours (with a ticket in hand) to enter Casa Mila.
Besides, when you buy the Casa Mila tickets in advance you also save 3 Euros per ticket.
