What You Can Expect

Gaudí’s La Pedrera at Night: A Behind-Closed-Doors Tour in Barcelona

Admire Gaudi's La Pedrera by night on a magical audiovisual experience

Designed by Spain’s modernista architect Antoni Gaudí in the early 1900s, the UNESCO-listed La Pedrera stands testament to his genius. Still largely made up of private apartments, its architecture reflects his love of flowing lines.

It takes on an extra magic at night. See for yourself during The Gaudí Pedrera: The Origins, an evening event that brings the architecture alive with dazzling audiovisuals and a soundtrack that charts Gaudí’s obsession with natural forms. The group is limited allowing you to experience the building free from daytime crowds.

You'll quickly appreciate this when you arrive and head for the Passeig de Gracia patio, one of La Pedrera’s inner courtyards. Admire the fairytale-like surroundings highlighted by the audiovisuals before heading to the upper story, where a museum reveals more about the architect.

Enjoy the displays, innovative design, and more special effects, and then visit the roof terrace. Here, marvel at an otherworldly show projected on his famous spiraling chimneys. When you want a touch of reality, look out at Barcelona’s sparkling skyline.

End your experience on the Provenca patio, admiring its murals, mosaics and stairway over a glass of Cava — the perfect finale!

Amazing architecture, wonderful laser show at the end and of course having champagne in the court yard of one of Gaudi's masterpieces is priceless! Highly recommend!!!

It was a good tour. The home is gorgeous and was beautiful to see under the stars.

We loved this tour. Going at night was so much less crowded and cooler than going during the summer day. Also, seeing it at night with lights kept my children interested and attentive to the tour guide. The tour guide was very good.

Fantastic, loved the evening

Excellent experience. I highly recommend it as it was one of the highlights of my trip to Barcelona. The only thing to be careful of is that Viator tells you that the tour starts at 8pm but in the summer months when the sun goes down much later, the time is changed to 9pm. The tour operator said that they would have communicated it to Viator but the information was not passed on to me so I arrived way too early. I would recommend getting there a bit earlier though if you're interested in buying some Gaudi souvenirs as the shop will be shut by the time the night tour ends.

This tour was amazing You need to book as it was booked out by a week. Being inside without other tours gave you time to wander around. The guide was a bonus as he gave you an insight only an expert has.
