Palau de la Música Catalana
Palau de la Música Catalana Review
Barcelona's most spectacular concert hall is a Moderniste masterpiece in the Ciutat Vella, off the Barri Gòtic. Performances run year-round, with 11 am Sunday concerts a popular tradition. The calendar here is packed—everyone from Madredeus to the Buena Vista Social Club has performed here, while the house troupe, the Orfeó Catalá, holds choral concerts several times a year. Tickets range from €6 (for concerts in the small hall) all the way to €190, and are best purchased well in advance. The ticket office is open weekdays 11 am–1 pm and 5 pm–8 pm, Saturday 5 pm–8 pm only. Tours in English of this Art Nouveau masterpiece (€17) are offered daily, on the hour, from 10 am to 3 pm (to 6 pm April–September).
