Was really excited to go to Palau de la Musica, after reading up on it before my Barcelona trip! Can be described as a glass concert/music box! I was mind blown by the details at this place - the glass ceiling, floral adorned walls and...More

We watched a great flamenco performance and the concert hall was beautiful. There were amazing mosaic walls and asymmetrical statues on each side of the stage. The seats were comfy and the amount of legroom was sufficient. The flamenco was professional and the music was...More

We had to attend an organ mini-concert to see the place. The architecture is interesting but nothing extraordinary. Our Guide ( I wish I knew his name) though was passionate.

This music hall is amazing! Normally, we do not go on guided tours, but the guide here was very entertaining, friendly and informative. Because we were on the very first tour of the day, we were a group of less than 10 people which made...More

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
