Not as well known as Gaudi buildings/structures but built around the same era. The tour was 1 hour long. Included lots of information. Stage decor is amazingly beautiful bas relief angels playing all the different instruments. The rest of the hall has beautiful tile decorations...More

I loved all the glass and flowered columns; signs of Gaudi's influence. The sculptured horses and glass ceiling the best

I visited during one of the daytime guided tours. The inside of the building was spectacular, but the tour left a lot to be desired. The tour was only an hour long, and the first 10-15 minutes were wasted watching a promotional video for the...More

We thoroughly enjoyed taking in the breathtaking beauty of the Palau de la Musica Orfeo Catala. The only complaint would be that the tour guide did not speak loud enough and several tours (in different languages) were taking place simultaneously. The beauty of the place...More

This is a must see. It is jaw dropping beautiful. The tour was excellent and we saw a short performance by several musicians which really added to the experience.

The locals seem to downplay the Palau. Perhaps it is because the outside belies the real treat within. The design was done by Antoni Gaudi's teacher, Lluís Domènech i Montaner. It becomes obvious where Gaudi got much of his inspiration. The interior, as I have...More

Palau de Musica is An enchanting structure, both the interior and the exterior are covered in exquisite details. If I had to select one of the most impressive details, it would be the central chandelier. It must be seen to be appreciated. My only misgiving...More

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 neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
