The magnificent Casa Milà (also known as La Pedrera) is a building designed by the Catalan genius - architect Antoni Gaudí and built during the years 1905–1910, officially completed in 1912. Fascinating is not only the special facade with wavy balconies but also interior. The most extraordinary is the unique rooftop with surrealistic chimneys looking like warriors from a scifi movie.

Cable car to Montjuïc hill

Avenida Miramar 30, 08038, Barcelona


The Barcelona cable car crossing the harbour from Barceloneta (Torre de Sant Sebastià) to the hillside park Montjuïc is a great way to discover a beauty of this city from air. But be patient because there can be a very long queue. It is open daily from 10 am to 5 pm (from 2 to 3 pm is closed). Once you arrive at Montjuïc you can enjoy a stroll in the gardens and the views over the harbour and the city.
