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.

This is a super touristy experience, but everyone should visit once. I have been to two different performances here. One featured a solo Spanish guitarist, who was great. The second was a weird combination of Flamenco and opera. The Flamenco dancing was first class but I would not say traditional as the accompanying instruments included a cello and violin; the...

The tour only lasts an hour but it's a great way to see the building. The tours are in various languages through out the day so plan/book in advance. I appreciated the beauty of the building. Somewhere worth a visit especially if you've had enough of Gaudi.

The facility was amazing. We actually were wowed more with our surrounding than the Flamenco. That said, it was a nice evening.

I enjoyed and appreciated the history of the building. The show we saw was a Flamenco / Opera and the sound and show was great.

The place is beutifull and well worth buying a concert ticket to some local music, or flamenco dance.

Excellent - you must book the tour (in your choice of language) in advance - we did it online the morning we wanted to go. The tour lasted an hour and the tour guide spoke super English and gave us a very interesting behind the scenes tour of this superb Catalan Art Nouveau building.

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.
