Getting around Barcelona’s must-sees on foot can be tiring and time-consuming, especially in summer’s heat. Check through the attractions with ease and in less time with a 1- or 2-day hop-on hop-off double-decker tour pass, including audio commentary on the sights. Stay aboard for a time-saving city overview, or hop on and off at stops along the two routes to explore further. Upgrade to a 2-day pass to fit your vacation schedule.

We took a 1 hour guided tour, the guide was very knowledgeable and keen to share information. Its easy to miss this place, as its hidden in the Gothic quarter. Fantastic to see the light effects and the glass ceiling is stunning. Certainly worth a visit.

I arrived right when it was opening at 8 am, so the staff was still cleaning and preparing for visitors for the day. While there isn't much information on display for visitors (lack of clarity and help from the workers), it was still a marvelous visit. It's very beautiful and the theater itself is jaw-dropping. From what I can remember, you can only access the top part of the theater, so that's the only view you're going to get.

After visiting the hospital of Sao Pau, the visit to the Palace of Catalan music was a foregone conclusion. The style of Luis Domenech y Montaner does not leave anyone indifferent. UNESCO in 1997 equated it with Gaudi recognizing these two architectural masterpieces as world heritage. There are two ways to visit the Palace: take a ticket to a concert or go on a guided tour. The former is clearly preferable, because the emotional impact of Domenech-y-Montaner interiors with music will certainly be stronger. However, there were no tickets and I had to limit myself to a tour. 50-minute guided tours take place in groups of up to 50 people every 30 minutes. It costs 18 euros. 3 euros more than the Louvre with its 200 thousand square meters. m. Barcelona is not for poor tourists. Already the lobby with a bar in the middle is amazing. Then you are taken to the small hall for an introductory story about the Palace. Admiration builds up on the stairs. The tour culminates in a concert hall. Everything is impressive here, but especially the giant dome curved inwards, made of colored glass mosaic. The colors of the mosaic are chosen in such a way that the audience has the effect of being in the open air, because this is the only concert hall in Europe with natural light. In the center of the dome, the Golden mosaic represents the Sun, and the blue shades used around it represent the sky. Wide arcades soar above the rows of seats in the upper gallery, and intricate moldings frame the stage, 18 statues symbolizing the Greek muses, and Wagner's Valkyries are located here. The organ pipes on the wall symbolize masculinity. The hall can accommodate 2,200 people, but as I mentioned, it is not easy to get into their number.

The Palace of music in Barcelona is a concert hall. His first goal is to host choral concert, symphonic music and recitals. The palace houses a big concert hall with beautiful sculptures on two floors. What I prefer there is the architecture. Mosaic colums are very beautiful and colorful and the magnificent stained glass skyligh is the real star of the building. Furthermore, the district is a very good place to visit too. I loved visiting this monument and my journey in Barcelona was wonderful and very fun!
