Palau de la Música Catalana

One of Barcelona’s most impressive architectural feats, presiding over the streets of La Ribera, the Palau de la Música Catalana is one of the city’s most popular concert halls, renowned for its spectacularly ornate interiors. Built in 1908 to designs by Catalan modernista architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner, the concert hall was initially built to house the Orfeó Català choir and remains an important venue for a range of traditional Catalan folk music.

A striking Modernista redbrick façade marks the entrance to the Palau de la Música Catalana, characterized by its intricate mosaics, colorful pillars and ornamental balcony. The interiors are even more impressive, with the 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 the era’s most prominent Catalan architects – a sumptuous museum including ceramic mosaics and relief busts by Eusebi Arnau, a stone arch by Pau Gargallo, vibrant mosaics by Lluís Bru and stained glasswork by Antoni Rigalt.

Although the concert hall is not renowned for its acoustics, the Palau provides a suitably glittering backdrop to performances, making attending a concert at the venue a rich audio-visual experience. The 2000-seat auditorium regularly sells out, so book tickets well in advance or opt for a guided tour of the auditorium to fully appreciate the architectural marvel.
