Taking the tour was one way to see this gorgeous Moderniste interior, but maybe not the best way. It is quite pricey while many of the concerts presented are quite reasonable and would add the acoustic dimension. Our guide was very knowledgeable, as an architect...More

A beautiful building conceived by the tutor of Gaudi, with fabulous acoustics and natural light, modernista in style and with a very interesting history both in terms of funding and construction. The English language tour was 18 euro ppn and the guide knowledge and personable....More

We enjoyed a 9pm flamenco performance on a hot night in June. This is a gorgeous venue with its grand staircase decorated with flowers leading into the concert hall full of colour and art.

I am from New Mexico where flamenco is also part of our culture. I have watched many flamenco dancers,. but none can hold a candle to Gran Gala Flamenc. The setting is also miraculously beautiful. The best of Barcelona.

Just seeing inside was worth the price of the show. The guitar Masters were amazing, and seeing them hear was a special treat.

Luckily we read the previous reviews and skipped the tour and paid just a few euros more for a wonderful concert. The symphony was amazing and the ambience was even better! It is so ornate and beautiful! An absolute must do in Barcelona! There is...More

It just so happened that the symphony was playing Mozart while I was in town and there were a few seats left in the upper rows. The architecture and design of this facility is amazing but the cooling system (if such exists) failed miserably. It...More

I have been here a couple of times for various shows. For me the building in itself is a big attraction and I like to admire its decor and the glass ceiling and design.

I've shown friends to and just inside this building many times, yet only once attended a concert; only once stayed to enjoy the experience of sitting in the lounge bar. Do both of these. You won't ever forget the luxury of all that surrounds you.

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

Treat it like any other concert or show and arrive in plenty of time. There is a great little tapas place directly opposite the ticket window - it looks like an old pub but it had the best tapas we'd eaten all week. To be... More

I am not sure you can get an advance time reservation. I believe that you have to buy an online ticket if you want to book your visit in advance. Be wise though that guided tours may be altered or cancellations from the... More
