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.

From the outside the Palau is beautiful, but that is nothing compared to the inside. Buy tickets to a performance - we saw an amazing flamenco show - so that you can sit and admire this unusual and beautiful theatre.

As others advise instead of paying a high price for a tour, buy tickets for a performance which we did and really enjoyed the Flamenco dancers. All the seats are good and if it is not filled up, you can leave your seat and find an even better seat, which we did not do, I saw others doing it. The building is impressive, but not overly so. We enjoyed a light dinner at the Palace before the show and it was not too pricey. Definitely a must see in Barcelona.

I would say the architecture of this building is very pretty but not amazing. You still have to see it but make sure you pick a date except Monday to see it. Unfortunately for us, the guide in english was a bit too rude. There was a couple with a little baby. Instead of politely pulling them to the side to talk because the baby was crying. He said in front of a big crowd that the should leave if the baby continued to cry.

I would say this is very rude for a paying customer. I was shocked.

Anyway, back to the place. It was good. Go but rather expensive.

This building is an absolute gem, the interior is stunning with a vast array of coloured windows, a wonderful arena and organic forms which make a functional space into a place of beauty

OMG, this is a theatre you just cannot miss. The guided tours are very informative indeed and you get to look around and understand the architecture, the acoustics, sample the music and take as many photographs as you can
