Palace of Catalan Music
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Palau de la Música Catalana welcomes an estimated 500,000 people a year to over 300 musical performances of various types: symphony, chamber, choral, instrumental, jazz and flamenco. It's also used for social functions and conferences. Leaders of the Orfeó Català choral society commissioned modernist architect Lluís Domenec i Muntaner to design the building in 1891. He gave free reign to his creative imagination, and the result is a masterpiece. The concert hall seats 1970 people, it's perfectly proportioned, and the acoustics are exceptionally fine. The stunning interior decor changes continually according to the amount of light that streams through the huge skylight and the stained-glass windows.
One of the things that makes Barcelona so interesting is of course the amazing modernista architecture that graces every guidebook and postcard of this fabulous city. So don't miss out on getting a closer look at one of more famous (and rightfully so) examples of the movement. Drop in first to book your appointment (you may have to reserve a day in advance to get an English-speaking tour guide) and then show up at the appointed time. The tour is very interesting and informative, and the interior is really breathtaking. My bf & I loved seeing this beautiful, historic building.
