Everyone is welcome at Casa Mila. Catalunya La Pedrera Foundation recognises visitors’ diverse capacities and needs and offers a varied range of programmes and services to ensure that La Pedrera is accessible to everyone.
Assistance dogs are welcome throughout the entire building.
Below you can find everything you need to know our range of services and accessibility resources to visit La Pedrera without obstacles:
Accessibility for people with physical disabilities
The tour of Casa Milà (La Pedrera) is accessible to people who use wheelchairs. There are lifts and ramps that connect the various floors.
The courtyards, the Pedrera Apartment (Period Apartment) and the Espai Gaudí (situated in the Attic) can all be visited without difficulty.
The Roof-terrace has many changes in level but is open to all visitors thanks to the lift and a platform next to the exit. There is an impressive sweeping view of the rooftop from this point.
The exhibition rooms are reached by a lift from the entrance in the Passeig de Gràcia courtyard. Inside the rooms, there is a stairlift to take you to the reception lobby.
As a new feature, starting with William Klein's upcoming exhibition, we will have a new accessibility resource available to support people with reduced mobility: the walking sticks. It is a support for visits to exhibitions that can be requested on a loan basis, and free of charge, to the customer service staff of the exhibition hall.
The Laie book and gift shop is accessed via a ramp inside the building.
The Auditorium and the Gaudí Room are easily accessible via a broad ramp.
There are disabled toilet facilities on the ground floor, in the Pedrera Apartment (fourth floor) and in the exhibition rooms (main floor).
The characteristics and forms of the building make it advisable for people with disabilities to visit it with a companion. Wheelchair users are accompanied by La Pedrera staff when using the adapted lifts.
We have a wheelchair loan service to make it easier for people with reduced or limited mobility to visit the building. This service is subject to availability.
Wheelchairs must be booked in advance by sending an email to email@example.com
Accessibility for people with impaired vision or hearing
Casa Milà (La Pedrera) offers a range of sensory resources intended to make it easier to understand the exhibits and to ensure access for all audiences.
Thanks to the “Accessible La Pedrera” programme, increasing numbers of sensory resources have been introduced in the museum and gallery spaces and also in the contents of the programme of cultural events and activities. These include interpreting in Catalan Sign Language (LSC) and live subtitling (SPS) at various events, as well as audio descriptions of shows for audience members who are blind or partially sighted.
In this way, the Catalunya La Pedrera Foundation works to achieve its goal of guaranteeing access for all to cultural material.
Tours of the building:
• Audio guides: We have a range of different audio guides that are available in a number of languages to meet visitors’ needs. You can request them free of charge at the audio guide desk, next to the ticket office.
For people with impaired vision, we have a descriptive audio guide. For people with impaired hearing able to lip read, we have audio guides transcribed into text. We also have individual magnetic neckloops for use with the audio guide device.
• Tactile spaces: to make La Pedrera more accessible, we have situated tactile spaces along the entire route of the tour, including models of architectural and sculptural details of both the interior and exterior. There is a model of the whole building in the courtyard off Carrer Provença, where the tour begins, and models of particular features in the Pedrera Apartment (on the fourth floor).
• Tactile plans: on every floor open to visitors, there is a visual and tactile plan that indicates the itinerary of the tour. These 3D plans have legends in three languages in ink, relief and Braille. They are to be found on the ground floor (Provença courtyard), on the Rooftop-terrace, in the Attic (Espai Gaudí) and on the fourth floor (the Pedrera Apartment).
• Accessible tours: People with impaired hearing able to use sign language can request a guided tour of the building with a sign language interpreter by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Visit to temporary exhibitions:
• For the blind and partially sighted: Leaflet in braille and in large print in a single document, tactile reproductions or images in high relief (depending on the exhibition) and guided tours.

Accessibility for people with learning disabilities
The foundation has taken a further step to support groups of people with cognitive impairment and who need help to understand because of this.
Many of the resources and services provided by the foundation are designed to improve the quality of life of people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.
In the temporary exhibitions at La Pedrera, we offer a range of cognitive stimulation visits and activities that encourage socialising with others and which stimulate the memory before, during and after a visit to the building. In partnership with neuropsychologists, who are familiar with these groups and their needs, we select pieces or themes likely to prove particularly attractive as a means to work on language, orientation, reminiscences, etc.
These resources, created by the participants of the REMS program of the Foundation, are also made available to associations and carers or relatives of people with Alzheimer's, as well as foundations working in the field of cognitive decline that manage day centres and homes that run socialisation programmes to facilitate inclusion and the creative use of leisure time.
