“Pretty!”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

From outside, it's very pretty. From inside, it's even prettier. If you have spare money and time, there are few shows held in this building. I watched the Flamenco show, pretty good. There is a guided tour as well, which is 17 euro and lasts for about 1 hour

“See a Performance!”
Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

The outside of this building is beautiful, the inside is beautiful but it makes the whole experience amazing if you see a performance here! We paid a little more than the price of the tour to see a concert here and it was fantastic!

“Beautiful Building”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

We loved our visit to this building. Again like some many places in Barcelona worth a visit. You can only visit if you book a tour (approx an hour) but well worth it. Tickets can be booked online in advance - worth doing.

“Fantastic experience!”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

First of all, the building is beautiful - inside and out. The performance my friends and I experienced was a Spanish guitar player who was fantastically talented as well as entertaining.
The only drawback was that there is no air conditioning inside the building and as it was a warm and sticky day, we were slightly uncomfortable.
All in all, a lovely evening that we will never forget!

“Must see!”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

This is our third visit to the Palau: 1 tour and two performances. An incredible building that you must see. Incredibly ornate and worth the time and small cost of the guided tour. Also, if you like music, as we do, the smaller performances are excellent and in a venue you will forget.
