  • Grab one of the guided tours and see all of the above, as well as the fabulous Círculo del Liceo - an exclusive English-style club

Choose between a live guided visit or an audio guide and take a tour of the biggest horseshoe-shaped opera theater in Europe, and the second biggest in the world. Uncover the majestic world of the Catalan bourgeoisie and see the home of the exclusive club still operating today!

The Gran Teatre del Liceu stands as a symbol of Barcelona's cultural and artistic history. It was opened in 1847 and has since survived two fires and an anarchist bombing! Originally founded by private shareholders it also has no royal box.

Take an audio-guided tour of the Historic Vestibule, the intriguing Hall of Mirrors, the Main Auditorium, and the Foyer. Soak up the neobaroque details and the history that permeates this spectacular symbol of Catalan culture.

On weekdays your tour includes the Círculo del Liceo. This English-style private club is one of the oldest and most prestigious in Barcelona. Here you can also see one of Catalonia’s most important Catalan Art Nouveau collections.

A trip here and you'll come away with a new appreciation for Catalan Art Nouveau, opera, and for exactly how much old buildings can put up with before they crack!

We had paid for audio guide visit, but had a guided tour instead. A place worth seeing and a nice guide, too!

We enjoyed the tour of the opera house. The tour guide was very thorough and was able to answer questions. I would recommend going to Liceu Opera house.

The theater was exquisite. The lovely guide was pleasant and very thorough at explaining in detail the history and current status of the theater. She spoke in both Catalan and English. Great visit!!!

De todos es conocido que en el ultimo incendio del Teatro del Liceu se perdío absolutamente todo el interior del patio de butacas, palcos y escenario. La reconstrucción se ha hecho cuidando todos los detalles, y francamente es precioso de ver, asi como la sala donde los espectadores salen durante los entreactos, o hall principal donde no llegó el fuego y que se matiene intacto. Pero hubo un detalle que no pude evitar observar y fueron los pasillos que dan acceso a los palcos. Pasillos modernos, minimalistas. Me extraña muchisimo que antaño esos accesos a los palcos y esos pasillos fueran asi. Ya puestos se podrían haber reconstruido los accesos y pasillos de igual manera que el interior. Esto me chocó bastante.

Sympathique culturel et une guide enthousiaste. Audioguide très bien. Dommage que certaines salles soient fermées.

me gusto mucho pero faltaba información.
la primera señorita que nos atendió hablaba demasiado rápido y después nos atendió su compañera. La sensación es de falta de organización e información.
muy interesante por la visita al Cercle . perola visita al teatro muy mejorable
