Very interesting building to see inside. You have to take a tour and English ones only run at certain times. We wandered in on spec and were told the next one was in an hour. We wished we had booked at that point as, when...More
We went on a whim while killing time and it ended up being a highlight of the trip. Amazing color and light. Modernism may not be your thing, but you should give this a look. Tour is just under and hour and the guide was...More
Full disclosure: my wife and I didn't go into the concert hall, which I'm sure is spectacular, but I'm writing this review because of the seemingly exorbitant price to visit this building which was why we didn't visit.
The price we were told at the...More

An enjoyable tour around a stunning building; designed by Gaudi's teacher (Lluís Domènech i Montaner). The sculptures, glasswork & mosaics are fantastic. The Auditorium is amazing, so much to see. The hour long guided tour is well worth doing and I recommend it.
Lovely building and concert hall. It takes awhile to notice all the details. Book a concert if schedule allows. Okay to save money with cheap seats- it's a small venue and all seats have interesting views plus you can arrive early to walk around. If...More
A hidden jewel in Barcelona. The concert hall in amazing inside. It is worth 50 minutes to see all the incredible detail inside this great place for concerts. It’s impressive and beautiful. Book a concert if you have time!
A unique experience to hear an opera in this beautiful building-rich in history and color-heard Mozart’s magic flute and it is still reverberating in my soul-a real privilege-don’t do the tour-experience the concerts in their own venue and buy a ticket to whatever is playing...More
The building is fantastic, but I recommend you see it as it was intended, while listening to music. We pre-ordered tickets for a performance, and it was lovely to have the music and be able to examine all the wonderful details during the concert.
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.
Does anyone know if you can go and look around here without taking a guided tour? How much is it if so? I'm thinking I'd love to look, but with a 3 year old in tow i don't want to put her through a long guided tour (nor ruin it for others)

You can't visit it on your own. You need a guided tour. However, why not after the visit you can go with your children to Granja Dulcinea and have a BIG ENOURMOUS hot chocolate (spanish style, it is very thick) with churros? I'm sure that they will love it!

Palau de la Musica Orfeo Catala (6 Replies)
Hi, Is it worth getting a ticket to a guitar or flamenco show here or are there more authentic/traditional shows elsewhere in Barcelona? I heard that it is mainly tourists that attend here but I don't know if that is correct or not. Thanks in advance!

Guitar show, Flamenco show, Dog & Cat show...go, go, go. Whatever concert you sit back and enjoy in this wonderful arena will prove to be a memorable experience. An evening concert under that amazing roof is a treat for the senses. I would not pass up the opportunity if the concert appeals. Anthony
Palau de la musica orfeo Catala which option? (3 Replies)
I see that the Palau de la musica orfeo catala is highly recommended to visit. Can anyone suggest which option would provide the best experience as I see that when I visit in September I could choose a guided tour with piano mini concert, Gran gala flamenco. Los Farruco y Los Anaya or Opera y flamenco. Advice is greatly appreciated

I am not familiar with the three full-scale performances, but I am partial to the guided tour and mini-concert. The tour provides a lot of information you would not get by going to a regular performance, the stained glass in the hall is at its most spectacular during the day, and the mini-concert gives you something to listen to and an idea of the acoustics. If there is a full-scale performance that you would want to see on its own merits, by all means, do both.
