We went for a concert and paid premium price for the pit seats.If you booked online,there is a service fee of 1 Euro more. However,if you want the view rather than the music you can pay for second floor of third floor seats which are much cheaper and let you marvel at the ceiling more as you are closer to... More

More than worthwhile to visit as a building on its own. Even better to go to a concert. The locals know how to show their appreciation. Wide range of artists from clasical to american soul.

Palau de la Música Catalana is the most extraordinary concert hall. Beautifully decorated of the time it was built, it is a must to see. We took the English tour which is every hour and lasts about 50 minutes. It starts with an audiovisual explaining the history of the building. We were then shown around and spent 10 minutes watching... More

As the guide explained, the hall was built with the idea of maximizing the light through the stain glass windows, and concerts were often planned for afternoons to take advantage of the light....

This was one of the highlights of our Barcelona experience. The building is incredibly impressive, probably the only concert hall of its kind, filled with natural light from stained glass on the roof and sides. It is also the beneficiary of a sensitive restoration and expansion, with space created on both sides allowing the light to stream in. If you're... More

This theater is just spectacular! It is so beautiful and so detailed - you could spend hours just looking around. We also saw a concert there - one of the highlights of our trip! The concert was of traditional Catalan music. It was just amazing! The music was wonderful, and even though all the explanations were in Catalan, we still... More

Love this place, we've visited Barcelona a few times and always try to book tickets to see a performance here. It's also worth doing the guided tour to see the venue in daylight. Simply stunning.
