Instead of a guided visit, we bought a concert ticket and had the privilege of listening to a symphony orchestra in this amazing concert hall. You can have a nice glass of wine before the concert since the café is very inviting but be sure to arrive there early to admire the lovely architecture.

Acoustic quality was awesome as was the decor of the hall. We sat above the stage and had a view of the entire concert hall.

This was not on my "must see" list, but it ought to have been. Slightly tricky to find as it's tucked away, just ask a local when you think you're close. Group tours only so check times and languages offered. Others have said everything I wish to, but to hear Bach's organ music in this magnificent setting was emotional for... More

We saw a mediocre concert of the Black Heritage Choir here last month - the real star was the room - get there early so you can walk around and check all of the features of this magnificent music hall.

My review is strictly of the building itself and the tour, as I did not attend any concerts or musical performances which may have altered my rating. To start with, the building itself is something to behold, even if you can't make it out well through the glass wall exterior around the outside. Once inside, you'll see just how ornate... More

Even if you cannot get tickets to a concert, which are often sold out at peak tourist periods, take one of the guided tour to learn the history of this gorgeous facility and the Art Nouveau movement.

Neighbourhood Profile
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 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.
