Description: The Palau de la Musica Catalana is one of the most representative...
The Palau de la Musica Catalana is one of the most representative monuments of Art Nouveau architecture. An emblematic building of the Catalan Modernism, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1997. Built between 1905 and 1908 by the great architect Lluis Domenech i Montaner, the Palau de la Musica Catalana is an architectural jewel of Barcelona and essential part of any visit to the city, as any of the most fascinating Gaudi buildings.

Very beautiful place. The guided tour is very interesting. A little bit expensive, but when you know that it helps to maintain the building, it is OK.

Go online and get tickets to anything you can during your visit. Most during season tend to be flamenco or classical music. During summer, they rent out to other groups, so you may find more variety and lower prices. We even got a Groupon for a show that was the same price as just a tour. Excellent experience.

Another must see in Barcelona. It is an amazing building, with tons of photo ops. The one hour guided tour is amazing and worth every cent. The place gets touristy, but is stunning nevertheless!

This is a gorgeous building but expensive to visit as it seems are many Barcelona attractions especially if you have a family with you . For not much more than the guided tour we booked to hear a group of tenors ,sopranos etc perform a collection of 80's hits. The performance was ok with very talented singers ,the music choice...

Beautiful building known affectionately as "the people's concert hall". Stunning design - simple, ornate and beautiful all at the same time. A real tribute to music especially to choral groups. The organ rises above the seats and is majestic and fully intact having escaped any ravages of World War II experienced in other European cities. A site worth the time... More

Took a tour of this music hall. Very impressive and definitely worth it. The stained glass ceiling dome and the art around the stage is beautiful. The pipe organ demo was a nice touch.

An incredible experience overall. What a beautiful place, even if you're not "in" to art, architecture, or music. It's stunning! And the tour is well-done and not too long. I would do this again, and I can't believe I lived here two years before I saw it!

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
