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.

  • Went to see a concert here while in Barcelona. Was absolutely blown away by this place- so beautiful. The amount of time and care that went into creating this is astounding. Be prepared for lots of stairs if you're in the upper level like I was, but absolutely worth it as you are so close to that spectacular glass dome. Not a bad seat in the house, intimate, beautiful!
  • Absolutely worth a visit in Barcelona! It is beautiful inside and out from floor to ceiling. The entrance is 11 euros which is totally worth it and you can easily access an audio guide online - bring headphones - which tells you all about what you're seeing in each room. There are also in-person guided tours available. I believe they host shows too which I did not attend. Very pretty and impressive location!
