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.

Booked on line from US via a very friendly web site. Easy walk to hall from Placa Catalunya. Pleasant bar for drinks, coffee etc. Enjoyed it so much we added another concert and a flamenco performance. Building is beautiful and worth a visit in its own right.

Absolute must see in terms of architecture, there're no words needed to convince anybody. BUT was there twice for concerts and was completely disappointed by organization! I can understand it's touristic but Bolshoy is also touristic and absolutely different quality. I'm not judging the skills of performers (have no expertise to do so), but I can not understand letting people... More

This incredibly beautiful building is almost hidden in a residential street. Book in for either a concert or a guided tour. This is the only place you will see balustrade struts made of coloured glass. The tiling, the carving, the stained glass - it is ornate and colourful, yet posesses light and air, like a fairy tale, and is not... More

We happened into the Palau de la Musica a few minutes before an English language tour was to begin. What luck. This is a beautiful building, rich in history. The tour was very informative. The thing that interested me the most, besides the sheer beauty of the building, was that the building was designed by Lluís Domènech i Montaner, who... More

My son and I attended a piano recital at the Palau de la Musica Catalana during our trip. The performance was wonderful, and the evening was greatly enhanced by the stunning beauty of the ornate and unusual building. It was also a chance to mingle with a more cultured part of Barcelona society, which was quite an eye-opener. The ticket... More

This building is gorgeous! It is art nouveau in style and definitely should be seen if you enjoy this type of architecture. We decided to actually go to a concert instead of doing a tour. I'm glad we did. It is a great venue to see a performance and it didn't look like there was a bad seat in the... More

I took a guided tour of the Palau in mid November. By chance, there was a concert for children on at the same time - it was lovely to hear the music at the same time as admiring the beautiful stain glass. I bought my tickets online. As you can only visit by guided tour, I recommend that you purchase... More

Smashing Conference was held at Palau de la Musica Catalana in October and I really loved the venue. It was very nice indeed and really enjoyed the 2 days of the conference. There are many places around to eat and the location was awesome. couldn't have been better. The only negative thing is that we were no allowed to go... More

We caught a concert celebrating Spanish music and dance at the Palau de la Musica and sat in awe of the beauty surrounding us. The price for our seats was incredible, just 20 euro for a fantastic show as well as the privilege of seeing in a UNSECO world heritage site. Simply wonderful.

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.
