The Palau was beautiful.Amazing stained glass and architecture. The guide was able to have a computer play the organ so we could hear the acoustics in the hall. Well worth the visit.

The music hall is magnificent! We were fortunate to tour during a rehearsal, it's too bad that we did not have time that evening to attend the show, I'm sure it was amazing!

This was a wonderful tour! The building is stunning outside, but if thats all you see, you're missing out. My elderly mother was able to use an elevator to move between floors and the staff were very friendly with her and a lady with a baby buggy who also needed the elevator. We had plenty of time to take photos during the tour, and the group was a good size to be able to hear the guide and also get photos without other people in them. We also liked the gift shop which had good quality merchandise and a range of prices. We arrived early enough to have morning tea there, and the cafe service and food was also good.
