BUT IT WAS ABSOLUTELY MAGNIFICENT!!The whole building looks like a sugar-cane,all shiny consisted of bigger or smaller candies in any colour one can imagine. The only chance we could visit it inside was when we asked for a wc and unfortunately they didn't let us check the inner rooms as well..But you might be luckier!Eitherway,it's worth a shot ;D

Wow - what an incredible evening! The theatre itself is mind blowing with leaded glass dome roof and windows. The show was incredible. the tenor and soprano singing Carmen were amazing and were the Flamenco dancers. A definite must see for anyone travelling to Barcelona

tickets give you entry with a tour guide who will share the history of the building, architecture and the music. Beautiful building with so many beautiful features and stained glass. They also have a restaurant in the lobby. Catalan people have a strong history in Spain and this Music Palace is another symbol of there independence.

Beautiful places, especially the auditorium and staircase. The color and design was impressive. We also watched a show, Four Guitars, and really enjoyed the music and ambiance. Perfect memory.

one of the most beautiful buildings in Barcelona. Buy a ticket to the concert and enjoy Palau de la Música Catalana. Even better then Goudi buildings

Three flamenco guitarists had the audience on their feet cheering for more. The love affair of the audience started before the musicians walked on stage. The hall sparkles, an architectural experience standing on its own. The acoustics are superb. The seating feels close and intimate. The mellifluous tones of the artists and the flawless flamenco melodies brought it all together.
