Beautiful!

The best is to see a concert there, but the the building is special enough to visit! Highly recommended!

The architecture is amazing. We took the English tour which is every hour and lasts about 50 minutes. It starts with an audiovisual explaining the history of the building. We were then shown around and spent 10 minutes listening to the orchestra performing a concert for children. Well worth a visit. We did the bus tour so had a 20%... More

This place is truly amazing!!! I have never seen anything like it. The four of us fell in love with it from our tour and cut another tour short so we could attend a concert in it during our five days in Barcelona. It was so good. You won't regret it.

For our first night we were lucky enough to enjoy Gala Flamenca. The space is more than beautiful, deserves a visit!

We went there for New Year concerts, and was beyond what we had ever imagined. Strauss Festival Orchestra made our experience truly magical!

Take a guided tour! Or enjoy a concert. The architecture is stunning, with so much detail. I bought a book to take home so I can look at it again and again. There is also a lovely cafeteria.

the place is beautiful, worth going to a concert just to see it. had dinner at their restaurant, fixed menu but very good. prices for the organ concert were very modest (12 Euro)

This place is over the top when it comes to ornamentation. We got tickets and saw a performance. Both inside and out were something to look at! It was fun to see and the music and ballet were a nice addition to our trip.

The online ticket prices seemed a bit high so I went onto a local web site in Spanish (atrapalo.com with Google-translate to read it in English) and found the local price to be less than 2/3 the English prices (some of the tourist English web sites had...

This is an amazing place, a UNESCO honoree and worthy of the honor. The architecture, history and acoustics and top-notch. Visit it even if there's no concert going on. there are tours but it's best to just attend an event
