This is a great tour. The guide was knowledgeable and charming. The set-up is professional with a useful introductory video in the rehearsal room prior to the tour of the building, which really is a unique treasure! We teamed this with a flamenco performance at the venue subsequently which allowed us to see the building in action, this complemented the tour perfectly. Highly recommend.

Don't miss this tour. The Palau is spectacular. A special treat awaits as they electronically trigger the organ to replay a former performance.

Gorgeous building! This was a lot of fun, and a great tour. Loved seeing this up-close. My only regret is that I didn't get to see an actual performance here while in Barcelona. Next time!
