Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Catalonia / Province of Barcelona / Barcelona / Palau de la Musica Catalana
Each year more than half a million people enjoy the musical performances at Palau de la Musica Catalana, which was placed on the World Heritage List in 1997. Designed by architect Domenech i Montaner, this exquisitely ornamented structure was built between 1905 and 1908, and originally served as home to the Orfeo Catalá musical society. Widely regarded as a masterpiece of Catalan architecture, the building is a fine example of the Modernist style, featuring elements made of tiles, stones, and bricks. Try to attend a concert, but at the very least arrange to join a guided tour of the site’s famous auditorium, known for its blue-gold stained glass skylight and the sculpture of Wagner’s Valkyries. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Palau de la Musica Catalana and many more Barcelona attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Barcelona trip planner .

Palau de la Musica Catalana Reviews
割引があったので、あらかじめ英語ツアーを予約して参加しました。ちょうどピアノ演奏のリハーサルを見ることができ、雰囲気も良かったです。初めに音楽堂の歴史や演奏家が紹介をしてくれるビデオを見て、それからツアーが始まります。やはり圧巻は天井のステンドグラスです。 more »Because there was a discount, I booked an English tour beforehand and participated. I was able to watch the rehearsal of the piano performance, and the atmosphere was good. First, we watched a video of the history of the music hall and the performers introducing us, and then the tour begins. After all, the best is stained glass of the ceiling.

We went to a flamenco music show, with excellent dancers and cantores, amazing the young dancer. Very good
It's. Just. So. Beautiful. I've lived in Barcelona for nearly 5 years now, and I went inside for the first time BECAUSE I'M STINGY and didn't feel like paying the entrance fee (which I can now assure you is worth it). We went to see the Vivaldi Strings concert, and I just felt like I was in another era. My tip as a local - wait to go to a concert and take a tour yourself. The acoustics are all natural (at least the concert I went to), and this way you don't have to pay the steep entrance fee. It was the best birthday present I've had in a long time and I'm already planning on going to another concert soon.
What a feast for the eyes! It's a short tour for €20 but so worth it. The stained glass, the sculptures, the sheer beauty! We were lucky in that there were some people practicing for a concert so we got to experience the acoustics too. If we return to Barcelona we will definitely try to go see/hear a concert here.
