Owner description: The Palau, an icon of modernist architecture in downtown Barcelona The Palau de la Música Catalana is one of the most representative monuments of the city and It is one of the most recommended tourist attractions of Barcelona. Built between 1905 and 1908 by the great architect Lluis Domènech i Montaner, the Palau de la Música Catalana is an architectural jewel of Catalonia and essential part of any visit to the city, as any of the most fascinating Gaudi buildings. This historical building, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1997, offers an experience so magical that visitors fall in love with it. From the hand of experienced guides, the wonders of this architectural pearl discovered and visitors into a fantasy world full of details and references to the characteristic nature of modernist architecture. An essential visit in the list of top 10 things to see in Barcelona.

We made reservations for a classical concert and were delighted we did! What a wonderful way to see and truly enjoy this beautiful Palace of Music! A must see, must do in Barcelona.

It is hard to belive it took only three years to build -- 100 years ago. Beautiful glass and tile work everywhere.

At times, Barcelona can feel crowded, hot and confusing for a tourist; but this place is an island of sanity in the midst of it all. We walked to the box office and bought tickets a day or two before the show; they weren't in the best location in the theatre but we had no problems seeing the stage. I'd recommend going, no matter what is playing. Before the concert or during intermission, walk to the centre of the theatre and look up and around you. What you'll see is one of the most breathtaking theatres in all of Europe (and I've been to a number of them). It, and whatever is playing, will be worth the price of admission.

Even if you don't have time to do the tour (which is highly recommended) DO go have an excellent coffee and snack in the truly beautiful coffee shop....sit inside, and soak in the richness of the colours and shapes.....SUCH a treat!

We wanted to visit the Palace of the Catalan Music and we had read on this site that the best way to do it was to buy tickets for a concert , so this is what we did ! We listen to a Choral from Russia sing some operas from Verdi and Hayden but most importantly we did it in this unique concert hall for 2 hours and a half ! The accoustics are great but the views are even more impressive ! Both the architecture and the decoration are exceptionnal ! This is a Marvel !
The cost of a ticket was 24 euros on a Friday ( Good Friday ) and since the Palace was only half-full , we were able to change seats and have different perspectives !
