Barcelona’s Palau de la Música

 

One of Barcelona’s hidden treasures, quite often not discovered by the usual tourist is the Palau de la Música, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, located in the heart of city, minutes away from Placa Catalunya.

Palau de la musica

The breathtaking architecture full of colour and natural light is a magnificent example of Modernist architecture.

It was built built between 1905 and 1908 as a place where music could be enjoyed at its most, and it is still today a major site hosting festivals and music concerts.

The breathtaking architecture full of colour and natural light is a magnificent example of Modernist architecture, designed by Lluis Domenech i Montaner, a contemporary of Gaudi.

The interior design, made of mosaïcs, sculpted stones and numerous impressive stained glasses, is absolutely stunning and well worth a visit.

The best way to enjoy the Palau is to go to an actual concert, but there are also daily tours taking place in English, Catalan and Spanish. Visit: http://www.palaumusica.org/ for more information.
