The area
Address
Neighbourhood: El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.

The tour starts with a 10-minute video about the history of the building, the choir that first owned the building, the architect, and brief statements from a handful of musicians and singers who have been guest performers. Then you move on to the actual guided tour, which lasted 30 min at most. The guide was pleasant. The 15€ tour overall was a bit lacking and brief. After the tour, you are free to wonder the building and take photos. The concert hall is beautiful.

There is a café in the building. Food and drinks are overpriced and average.

Fabulous building! Under restoration during our visit however we were still able to appreciate the details. We booked an English guided tour which started off with a ~ 10 min video and then a tour. Good cafe and clean toilets. Went with our 8 year old at 3pm and the tour lasted an hour max which was perfect for our needs - kept cool and entertained.

You don't know where to look at first when you enter the Palace. I took the visit without a guide, the audio guide was included. It was well worth it! Next time in Barça, I will try to book a concert there.

We attended a guitar concert with flamenco dancers. It was a most enjoyable evening. The building is an architectural delight. Ticket prices were very reasonable.

We went early morning and the place was very quiet. We booked the day before to make sure.
Every now and then they play piped music in the theatre, make sure you find a comfortable seat and enjoy the moment.

A wonderful way to finish my birthday in Barcelona. The last time we were in the city, we only admired the building from the outside. As we were visiting Barcelona again, I thought I'd see what shows would be played during our time there.
A wonderful play of colours. Such amazing details.

A lovely building with a lot of history to it, especially once you hit the music hall itself, although the admission fee is too expensive for what is eventually uncovered. Despite this, the vibe allows for some excellent photographing opportunities that are possibly more exciting than a trip to the local pavillion.
