Palau de la Música

The Palau de la Musica Orfeo Catala is a luxurious Catalan Art Nouveau masterpiece. Built between 1905 and 1908, the building unites the decorative arts of sculpture, mosaic, stained glass and ironwork. Surprisingly it wasn't designed by Gaudí. It was dreamed up by another Catalan architect: Lluís Domènech i Montaner.

The Palau was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.

This building is not to be missed! It's sheer opulence and scale, created by an unending imagination, is inspiring and unforgettable.
If you like modernisme and want to see beyond the works of Gaudi, then this tour is unmissable.. trust me.
The staff were also wonderful. Our tour guide (english) was knowledgeable and passionate about this magical place.
Enjoy.. you won't get it.

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.
