The Palau de la Música Catalana is an exquisite Modernist tribute to Cataluña. Built by Lluís Doménech i Montaner between 1905 and 1908, the Palace opened on February 9th 1908 and was heralded as a triumph of Cataluñan Modernista Style. The building was originally created as the residence of the Orfeó Catalana, an important choral society dedicated to the preservation of native Catalan folk music, and now hosts concerts of all genres and styles as well as conferences, congresses and exhibitions.

The interior of the building is an opulent sanctuary of stained glass, mosaics and sculpted stone, a feast of light and colour. In 1997 it was added to the UNESCO World Heritage Site list and remains an essential must-see for anyone interested in the cultural and social history of Barcelona. Concert tickets are all available to purchase online and highly recommended as an evening of stunning classical entertainment.

A guided tour is also a wonderful way to thoroughly appreciate the historical settings and details easily missed on a fleeting visit. Admission for visits to the hall is limited to 55 people per visit and tickets go on sale one week before the day of entrance.
