My husband and I had seen photos of the opulent Palau de Musica concert hall online, and prior to traveling, we decided that we wanted to experience a concert in this incredible venue, so we pre-ordered tickets for a Spanish guitar concert. It was an...More

Such an amazing and underrated monument in a city awash with things to do. Small queues, a thoughtful and interesting tour and simply stunning building/interior. One off the beaten path, when compared to the Gaudi houses and Sagrada Familia but spectacular in it's decoration and...More

To really appreciate this incredible beautiful and ornate building, try to see a concert here. If you don’t have time, take a guided tour (book online) and discover the colourful, ornate interior, designed by Gaudi’s professor Domènech di Montaner. The ceiling glass is unique and...More

One of the most amazingly beautiful interiors that I've ever seen. One would think all of the various decorative elements would be too much, but it all works together. Of special note, the amazing stained glass skylight and the muse figure on the back wall...More

Gorgeous building, well worth the tour, especially if you enjoy architecture and the Modernista style. Tours are timed, so make a reservation for a certain date and time and language. Takes about an hour, with a short video, then two stops in the music hall...More

Take the guided tour to see it all. Stunning interior which is masked by the modern exterior. An undiscovered gem if you like architecture.

We booked the guitar concert but it was cancelled due to the general strike after the referendum. We booked for a tour the next day instead. Beautiful place. There was somebody rehearsing the organ at the time, so that was an extra treat! Good chance...More

We went to a guitar concert there, pretty much on pure chance. I ordered the tickets on-line from abroad, and crossed my fingers in hope. We got there a little early and enjoyed a coffee in the pleasant cafe at the entrance, and easily picked...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

Yes, you can visit the Café in the back and still enjoy the architecture but if you want to see the actual main hall with the signature glass drop, you do have to get a guided tour or see a show. Definitely worth visiting... More

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.
