Went on a tour of the theatre hosted by a highly energetic and amusing chap - informative, and interesting. Later the same day bought tickets for a Flamenco evening at the theatre - superb.

If you're a music love, don't miss this place. Is a small concert hall, mostly for choirs because a full orchestra barely fits. But it's the most beautiful building I have ever seen. They have guided tours in various languages (the most common ones are in English, if you don't want to wait for one in your language). I think... More

We took the tour of the Palau de la Musica Catalana. It lasts about 45 minutes and lets you experience the magnificence of the interior of this building. You also learn a bit about the history of Catalana, which helps you understand the political divisions in Spain. They even play the organ to let you experience the wonderful acoustics.

This is a gorgeous venue which enhances the concert experience. There is a very pleasant restaurant where a pre or post small meal or drink may be purchased.

The building itself is worth a visit even if only for an espresso. I've visited for a flamenco concert but spent extra 20 minutes walking around the building, admiring its style

We didn't have the chance to go inside, but the building has a very interesting design. The location is also good and easy to access.

We attended both the tour of the palace as well as a symphony concert here. I would highly recommend attending a concert here-it is an amazing venue. For the price of the tour, we felt afterwards like we did not need to do it since we were attending a show there. However, if you are not able to attend a... More

The interior is very nice with huge vitro windows. Apart from that 18euros per person seem a lot for it.
