Palace of Catalan Music (Palau de la Música Catalana) Tours

star-5
3 Reviews
Palace of Catalan Music (Palau de la Música Catalana)
One of Barcelona’s most impressive architectural feats and renowned for its spectacularly ornate interiors, the Palace of Catalan Music (Palau de la Música Catalana) is one of the city’s most popular concert halls. Built in 1908 by Catalan art nouveau architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner, the venue hosts a range of traditional Catalan folk music performances. 

The Basics
A striking redbrick façade marks the entrance to the Palace of Catalan Music, which also boasts an ornamental balcony, intricate mosaics, and colorful pillars. The interiors are even more impressive, with a lavishly decorated auditorium centered around an eye-catching stained-glass skylight. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997, the concert hall features décor by some of Spain’s most prominent Catalan architects. 

Although not renowned for its acoustics, the palace provides a suitably glittering backdrop to musical performances, making attending a concert here a rich audio-visual experience. The 2,000-seat auditorium regularly sells out, so book tickets well in advance or opt for a guided tour to fully appreciate the architecture. Tours of the concert hall can be combined with an opera or flamenco performance at the nearby Teatre Paliorama.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Palace of Catalan Music is a must-see for architecture buffs and music lovers.
  • Choose between a live performance or guided tour of the concert hall; guided tours last about 55 minutes.
  • Be sure to book tickets ahead of time to avoid disappointment.
  • Photography of any kind is prohibited during concerts.
  • The venue is wheelchair accessible.

How to Get There
The music hall is well connected to public transportation. Take the Barcelona Metro to Urquinaona, or take buses V15, V17, or 45 to the venue. 

When to Get There
The palace is open daily throughout the year, with tours every half hour except during scheduled performances. Tours and concerts tend to sell out early, particularly during the summer high season (June to August).

A Modernist Architecture Tour of Barcelona
The Palace of Catalan Music is one of many modernist monuments in Barcelona—perhaps the most famous not built by Antoni Gaudi. To get a feel for the work of this period, make sure to visit Josep Puig i Cadafalch’s Casa Amatller, as well as Gaudi’s iconic Sagrada Familia, Park Güell, Casa Batllo, and Casa Mila.
