Architecturally, this is an iconic modernist building with tons of small details and great craftmantship. The concert hall is a breathtaking experience with a ceiling you will never forget. You can find really good concerts and events all year round from Classical music, to Jazz, small ensembles, Flamenco. If you come to Barcelona to sample its fine culture this is... More

We had the opportunity to attend a flamingo concert there. We were late and they allowed us to enter at a discount (quite nice!). The concert hall is very beautiful.

We decided to get tickets to a show rather than do a guided tour. We attended a Flamenco concert which was outstanding with the talent of the dancers, the musicians' gentle humor and wonderful acoustics in a stunning setting. The architecture is spectacular, arrive in time to have a drink and leisurely take in the history and beauty of the... More

With a singular architecture, is the most atractive Concert Hall in Barcelona. You can do a guided tour in many languages or you can enjoy the amazing acoustic!!! Worthy in all senses. Obligated visit in Barcelona.

This place is a little off the tourist path in that it's not the first thing that springs to mind when you think Barcelona, but definitely worth it. Tour was really interesting and the concert tickets we'd booked there afterwards were even better. If you have time would definitely recommend.

Instead of a guided visit, we bought a concert ticket and had the privilege of listening to a symphony orchestra in this amazing concert hall. You can have a nice glass of wine before the concert since the café is very inviting but be sure to arrive there early to admire the lovely architecture.

Acoustic quality was awesome as was the decor of the hall. We sat above the stage and had a view of the entire concert hall.

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.
