Create an itinerary including Palace of Catalan Music
Each year more than half a million people enjoy the musical performances at Palace of Catalan Music, which was placed on the World Heritage List in 1997. Designed by architect Domenech i Montaner, this exquisitely ornamented structure was built between 1905 and 1908, and originally served as home to the Orfeo Catalá musical society. Widely regarded as a masterpiece of Catalan architecture, the building is a fine example of the Modernist style, featuring elements made of tiles, stones, and bricks. Try to attend a concert, but at the very least arrange to join a guided tour of the site’s famous auditorium, known for its blue-gold stained glass skylight and the sculpture of Wagner’s Valkyries.

  • Not here for a concert but enjoyed a cup of coffee and admire the building! It is amazing! I was speechless! So much detail to discover, so many little things to appreciate! The coffee shop serves very nice coffee and meal! The shop itself also have lots to appreciate Besides the churches here in Barcelona you needed to go and see! This music hall are not to be missed!
  • I wish I had been able to see a concert here! It's an amazing venue and I thought it was worth the cost of the visit. Be sure to bring your earphones so you can use the audio guide on your phone. There is also a cute cafe where you can get a quick bite inside too.
