My daughter picked to go here and so we paid for the tour and we are super glad that we did. It was an hour but very informative and overall the whole family was really happy with the choice

I read that it is a great peace of catalan history, and if you're into old music you will probably agree, but it was not for me.

We had some extra time on our last day so went here. You can only see by guided tour and it was boring, boring, boring. A waste of an hour.

The Palau should be on every tourist plans. Magnificent building. Don't miss the indoor. There are guided tours which are a must. Make sure to check for evening concerts and local flamenco shows. One of the best!

Regardless of what is being presented during your visit - get tickets to see something in this historic building! We had the good fortune to see a Flamenco Gala, but I would have been happy to see an opera or concert as the acoustics here...More

Over the top glorious magnificence! Took the tour which was really informative and lasted an hour.You are free to stay after the tour which most people did. This building and its beauty demands the same reverence as the basilica of the sagrada famila. Just Stunning.

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

I wish we had chance to see a performance but agree with the reviewer who said ‘ go in the day’ all the wonderful colours and lights, glass and ceilings I can only imagine are best seen this way... it is truly beautiful

There are no self-guided tours. You will need to commit to a timed, conducted tour. You won't see backstage, but otherwise you'll get a good idea of the rest of the building - foyer, circle and stalls, with time to wander a... More

I think that the seats have their number, so you must choose the seats before the payment.
