I'd liked to see the evening show but it was impossible for me. Ceramic tile mosaics decorate columns and walls. Stained glass windows decorated with floral designs.

The Flamenco show was outstanding -- we developed an appreciation for the music as well as the challenging dance moves. It was a truly professional show. On top of it, the architectural details of the Palau are eye-popping. I couldn't get enough photos!

Went to see a concert here of classical guitar. It was wonderful from the setting itself which is amazing to the great music in a very intimate setting for a concert hall.

That is really nice. The Palau de la Música Catalana is an architectural jewel of Catalan Art Nouveau. And it is also one of UNESCO World Heritage sites. And if you want to visit one Art Nouveau building. This it should be it. It is the best..

Went to one of the guitar solo concerts and although I suspect that they are largely attended by tourists, it was an excellent performance. A large part of the reason for going was the chance to see the wonderful interior of the concert hall; fantastic art-deco stained glass ceiling combined with a ceramic "rose" decor on the wall which makes...

We booked a Flamenco show through our hotel here and firstly, the venue is absolutely gorgeous! The building itself is a little hidden, but it's a gem! The show itself was just amazing!!! I recommend everyone see it if they are in Barcelona!! The music, the dancers, the atmosphere had my mouth agape most of the time. It's sad that... More

We entered through a small street and saw the Palau on the long side. Nice but nothing more. But wait until you continue and take a left to see the front facade of the Palau. A true jewel to enjoy for minutes and minutes. Don't pass by on Via Laetanea without jumping into the street and check out this facade.

Walking through the area it's in, you would never expect to find something like this. But once you walk in you feel like you've never seen anything like it before. The sculpture work and stained glass artwork is amazing. But it really comes to life during a performance. The lighting and acoustics really enhance it's beauty and gives you a... More

Why just take a tour when you can see a performance? The inside is beautiful. It's a great place to see and hear some Spanish culture and to see the lovely interior. Go early and walk around the neighborhood.
