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.

Great night of Flamenco at the Palau de la Musica Orfeo Catalana

This is an amazingly beautiful venue and I would recommend going to see a Flamenco show or any concert here. It's stunning, take your time to observe it in detail. Enjoy!

Don't miss this! Truly a music hall that you will always remember. The ceiling inside is as astounding as the acoustics.

went to see Gran Gala Flamenco. The venue is beautiful, we had box seats, front row, on lower level. I highly recommend this - front row especially.

The eye candy both outside and in is just remarkable. It is the only classical concert venue that I've been to where during intermission, the bulk of the audience spent the time wandering around snapping photos. The acoustics were great as was the brass group that saw.

I live in Barcelona and have been to the Palau de la Musica many times and have never been disappointed. Last Saturday night was no exception. We went to see Quatro Guitaras and there performance was fantastic.

Went to a Flamenco/opera concert. Wonderfull acoustics, atmosphere. Only disturbing thing was people not respecting the no mobile policy so the audience hosts had to run around from time to time and flash people in the face for filming and photographing.

How unusual to find a concert venue that allows the light of the outside to penetrate the interior. The stunning central skylight represents the sun and with its three dimensional drop into the space it seems like a portal to another dimension, akin to music for many. So unique, I cannot even imagine what it must feel like to be... More

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.
