This summer, you can join an unusual night tour of La Pedrera. Known as The Origins, this tour spends some time in the vaulted laundry area, beneath the roof terrace, where you can learn about the structure of Gaudi’s building and see some of the furniture that he designed for it. After that you make your way up to the roof for a spectacular sound and light show, with vivid images projected onto the chimneys; flowers, frogs, butterflies and flames all feature.
I was up there on a very wet night in May – they provided us with umbrellas but it was tricky to take photos while hanging onto the umbrella, and the steps get pretty slippery in the wet. Hopefully you’ll be luckier with the weather.
As I was there off-season it wasn’t at all busy, but in summer I would suggest pre-booking online.
