Hard to add new insights, but this really is a must see (ironically every Gaudi building we passed has queues round the block, where this is much quieter). The tour is not cheap but can be easily booked up online. The english speaking guide that we had was excellent, and took the time to describe the importance of the building... More

Our friends told us not to miss Palau de la Musica Catalana. It was incredible. You either have to see a concert or go on a tour to see the interior which is the work of Lluís Domènech i Montaner who lived around Gaudi's time but also influenced the architecture of Barcelona.

Amazing building! Instead of coming here to do a tour, we came for a show and it was perfect. Check their website for show information/times/prices. I think this is the best way to see the building and will be an experience you will remember!

Definately worth seeing the ceiling and the feel of the place. Not worth paying too much to get in, better to get cheap seats in one of the concerts and look at the ceilings to the music - and then leave when you are bored!

Ive heard from a friend that its not very popular among tourists and decided to see it. It came out to be one of the best places I ve visited in BCN. Shame I didnt take any pictures as its not allowed.

Guided tour in a very special building, colors and architecture that we have never seen before. Recommend seeing it, and perhaps attend a concert (matines on wednesdays at a reasonable price).
