Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Catalonia / Province of Barcelona / Barcelona / Palau de la Musica Catalana
Each year more than half a million people enjoy the musical performances at Palau de la Musica Catalana, 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. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Palau de la Musica Catalana and many more Barcelona attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Barcelona trip planner .

As much of my aunts commented that in photo it looked bigger, but, well, that's a more subjective subject.
The tour was a great way to learn more about the history, see the stunning details of the concert hall and sit and absorb some of the magic of the space. more »
It's. Just. So. Beautiful. I've lived in Barcelona for nearly 5 years now, and I went inside for the first time BECAUSE I'M STINGY and didn't feel like paying the entrance fee (which I can now assure you is worth it). We went to see the Vivaldi Strings concert, and I just felt like I was in another era. My tip as a local - wait to go to a concert and take a tour yourself. The acoustics are all natural (at least the concert I went to), and this way you don't have to pay the steep entrance fee. It was the best birthday present I've had in a long time and I'm already planning on going to another concert soon.
What a feast for the eyes! It's a short tour for €20 but so worth it. The stained glass, the sculptures, the sheer beauty! We were lucky in that there were some people practicing for a concert so we got to experience the acoustics too. If we return to Barcelona we will definitely try to go see/hear a concert here.
