We toured te Palau and was pleasantly surprised, It is inexpensive tour and we learned about the music of Catalana! We were lucky to have the opportunity to listen to the orchestra practicing with the choir for the evening show as well.

Amazing. Not to be missed. I thought a tour of a theatre would be okay, but it is more like a tour of a modernista museum. Even our 12 & 14 year old boys liked it. I have never seen anything quite like it. Beautiful.

The theater is breathtaking and unlike any other performance space I've seen. It is also quite intimate, which made the concert experience all the more enjoyable. We saw the Barcelona 4 Guitars performance and they presented a beautiful, accessible, and entertaining show. They are very talented and performed arrangements of familiar orchestral works, with some humorous touches as well. A... More

I went to visit a Flamenco Opera, which is only € 10,- more than doing a tour there. Not only were the performances top notch, the entire building itself is a celebration of Gaudi's magnificence, both inside and out.

We caught a wonderful flamenco guitar and dance show on good friday. Fabulous to have experienced an authentic show in such beautiful, ornate and plush surroundings. I wasnt able to take any photos inside because it was a show but all the more reason to catch a glimpse while you are in Barcelona.

Make sure you check the time schedule for guided tours beforehand! You can only visit this place with guided tours and only one such tour start every half hour. However, with tours in four different languages it means that there is two hours between every tour in your choosen languages. We missed the tour in English, partly due to us... More

Like us, one can plan to visit this place with the Gothic Quarter (Barri Gotic) tour. We didn't go for a musical show, but had taken the English audio guided tour and it was worth it. There was so much information to be soaked in stating from choir music in Catalunia to building this opera and world-famous musicians performing here.... More

so lucky to have been able to see and hear a performance of local folk stories for small children while we were visiting and will ensure we properly book ahead for a concert next time we visit to truly experience the magnificent and unique lighting and glasswork etc - not to be missed
