  • Explore the only concert hall that also happens to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site, including the grand Concert Hall
  • Take in Lluís Domènech i Montaner's richly detailed Art Nouveau masterpiece (yes, a stunningly ornate Barcelona building not designed by Gaudí!)
  • At the end of the tour, hear a musical selection played on the organ overlooking the grand Concert Hall

The Palau de la Música Catalana is a luxurious Catalan Art Nouveau masterpiece. It unites the decorative arts of sculpture, mosaic, stained glass and ironwork to provide an uplifting setting for the concerts that are regularly held there. This guided tour takes you deep into this jewel of Barcelonan Modernism.

If you thought Gaudí was Barcelona's favorite architect, you're right. But he's certainly not the only individual to have made contributions to the Catalan capital. The Palau de la Música, by Lluís Domènech i Montaner, is just as fanciful and rich in detail as anything by the more-famous Gaudí.

Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1997, the Palau de la Música is as important as a bastion of Catalonian culture as it is for its architecture. And that's really saying something, because it's an architectural masterpiece. It uses natural light to illuminate the interior stained glass and mosaics. The effect is like being inside a music box (especially if you're here for a concert).

Tour highlights include the Rehearsal Hall, the Lluís Millet Hall, and the grand finale: a musical sampling on the organ in the spectacular Concert Hall.

Unique museum like concert hall. Wonderful to learn about the artistic details on the tour. Came back for a concert - acoustics and the view from the first balcony were great.

the reason we rated the visit as good and not excellent is not because of the palau itself which is magnificent and really worth the effort.the problem was the guide.we opted for a guided tour but were disappointed from the quality of the guidance.one of the very characteristics of the place is its acoustics and it requires some explanation.when a guide says she can't talk abut it since she is not n expert-it is disappointing.
one piece of music was played on a remote controlled organ and it was fabulous.no matter how much we pleaded for another piece-we were turned down despite the fact that the tour ended earlier than tendered and there was time for 3 more minutes.
otherwise as i said this is a fabulous place and the entrance arrangements via advance ordering is also very good.
don't miss it but prepare yr homework before as you may not get all the info required.
