With only 3 days in the city, we almost didn't visit the Palau. What a mistake that would have been, as it turns out it was one of our favorite tours. Only wish we had time to take in a performance.

It's a beautiful building full of art in every corner. Don't miss it if you're visiting Barcelona! Only seeing it from outside is already amazing.

Stopped by the first floor loby for drinks/tapas on a walking tapas tour of Barcelona at a small free standing area (like something in a US mall) with lobby seating. Good wine. Nice tapas Recommended Slanche!

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

When there is a concert the building is open so don't hesitate and walk around. As you sit for the concert, the whole concert hall surrounding is full with Modernista decorations.

By the way, there are always stands serving Cava out door, before entering the hall. You don't need a pre-reservation.
