I came here for a concert and have not done the tour, so I cannot say anything about that. The interior is so beautiful and well maintained. It is a very special building and there are concerts almost every night, so if you are in the city it will be well worth to check out if there is something that... More

We wanted to see the building and decided it would be more fun to attend a concert rather than just take a tour of the building. We purchased tickets for a classic piano concert prior to our trip. The building is absolutely beautiful and a "must see". It was fun to also be there for a concert. Check the calendar... More

You are entering a theater, so you can only access the facility through a tour. Easy to see Modernista site. Incredible that a private organization pulled this together.

Palau de la Musica Catalana is a lovely auditorium. The building itself is very attractive. I am not sure of the seating, but it feels quite intimate. We heard a concert by Manuel Gonzalez, solo Spanish guitar. The sound was good. We were in the stalls, and felt quite close. I think any seats in the house would be fine.... More

What a performance we saw in Barcelona - a flamenco opera. The theater is amazing and the talented case performed their heart out. Careful as the upper balcony has limited viewing. The show cost around $20Euro/pp.

A must see inside this magnificent music hall. The ceiling is an enormous stained glass masterpiece used as the cover for many art books on the subject. Go to a concert if you can. But at the very least, take the one hour tour of the interior.

I was very lucky that I just happened to be able to join an English tour without waiting for too long. The guide speaks good English (after the nightmare at Sagrada familia) and she makes the tour very interesting. Best of all, it happened to have a TV shoot at the stage with a choir and 'human tower' so it... More
