Select a departure time to suit your schedule then greet your accomplished guide outside the Palau de la Música Catalana. Hailed as one of the country’s most exquisite examples of Art Nouveau architecture, the pristine Palau de la Música Catalana is a UNESCO World Heritage-listed structure that demands attention.
Sail past the crowds at the entrance hall with your skip-the-line ticket and immediately begin your tour in the remarkable Rehearsal Hall. Watch a captivating 15-minute clip that provides historical context then feast your eyes upon the elaborate staircases that ascend to the second floor.
Run your hand over lavish marble banisters as you climb the staircase and pass intricately decorated tiles. Gasp at the natural illumination in Lluís Millet Hall and gaze out of the interminable windows that stretch from floor to ceiling. Wander past pillars smothered in delicate mosaics of flowers then become mesmerized by the architectural allure of the Concert Hall, a room considered the structure’s centerpiece.
Marvel at the ecclesiastical panels of stained glass and gape at the dazzling dome that functions as an incandescent skylight. Gain insight into the inspiring architects responsible for the construction of the Palau de la Música Catalana from your guide, hearing tales of Pau Gargallo and Lluís Bru.
Upgrade your tour to include a 20-minute mini organ concert in the prestigious musical venue: take a plush seat in the auditorium and delight in the melodies of the organ and the excellent acoustics of the theater.
After an hour of enriching exploration, bid farewell to your guide at the exit of the building.
