In Barcelona, go inside one of Antoni Gaudi’s most celebrated buildings, La Pedrera, at night for a 1.5-hour multimedia event. The experience, known as Gaudí’s Pedrera: The Origins, takes you on a colorful journey through the landmark, culminating in a rooftop show where neon lights and projections transform his spiraling rooftop chimneys into giant candy-colored clouds or a galaxy of stars. Top off the evening with sweeping views of Barcelona as it twinkles below you, and a glass of Cava.
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!
