La Pedrera 

92, Passeig de Gràcia

Barcelona, Spain


Wheelchair access is limited. There is direct access to the ground floor courtyard, which is well worth a visit. The roof can be reached by a relatively spacious elevator, but once on the roof, wheelchair users are confined to a very, very small section of the rooftop. Access to the Apartment is via the original elevator, which is quite spacious. Sadly, the entry doors are not. The doors to enter and exit the elevator are roughly 69cm/27 inches wide.
