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).

We purchased tickets for a guided tour--the guide was lovely, enthusiastic and interesting, and the hour long tour passed quickly without us feeling like herded animals. Even my kids--ages 10 and 12--commented on how much they enjoyed the tour. They enjoyed the visit as much as I did!

Ushers let us move closer to the Flamenco show we watched. The theatre was gorgeous. The outdoor patio made nice drinks and waiters were kind and personable.
