We had read about the Palau de la Musica in Michener's Iberia. It was easy to find and the tour took less than an hour. We were extremely impressed with both the architecture and the story behind the facility. Highly recommended. It is only a five minute walk from Plaza Catalunya or the Ramblas.

This beautiful Palace of Music is in beautiful condition and has great acoustics. The outside of the building has been modernized, but the inside has retained its beauty with plaster paintings, sculptures in the architecture. We attended a guitar concert here and thoroughly enjoyed the small feel to this music hall.

Without being redundant - yes, the theater is gorgeous and a must see for even moderate theater enthusiasts! I highly advise seeing a show, any show, to experience the theater. You will have plenty of time to take pictures on all levels before the show begins, assuming you get there a few minutes early. I have not seen any other... More

Worth the trip just for the mosaics,stained glass and the ornamentation. We saw three fantastic guitarists on May 30, playing quality Spanish music who we later found were appearing individually in the local churches. The price was worth it even before a discount from one of the tourist books. Check the schedule of performances and save the $$ for Flamenco... More

This is another "don't miss" if you are a lover of the Modernisme styles. The tour is the only way to see it unless you attend a concert here.

I pre-booked the English tour of this music hall and it was well worth the money. Beautiful building with ample opportunity to take photos. The introductory video was very informative also.

Booked a concert here 3 months before we arrived in Barcelona. Excellent call. Wonderful way to experience the amazing work of Gaudi. Accoustics and ambiance made for a memorable evening. Enjoy tapas and beverage in the on site cafe.

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.
