This is NOT an opera house...this is a music theater "for all". There really is no way to describe the beautifully coordinated tiles, stained glass, wood, and textiles...the intermission area is ELEGANT. It's so visually encaptivating, I'm not sure I'd hear the music being performed.

What an amazingly beautiful building from top to bottom! Both at night and in daytime this building sparkles with its own style and beauty. Even the tiny box office windows are stunning in their finish. It's a must see in Barcelona. Recommend you see it...More

Well worth the ticket price for 50 minute tour and look around this gem of a building and its entrance hall and side rooms. Not to be missed.

We visited this after the Opera House and the contrast is stunning. The tour starts with a short film before entering the theatre which is so bright as the walls are mainly glass. We had the added benefit of one of our group being a...More

I took the non-concert tour of this place and it was well worth it, a rewarding hour. First there is a 10 minute video which is informative but nothing special. The tour itself, however, was excellent. The guide was charming and interesting, and the building...More

We had the pleasure of taking a guided tour with a mini piano concert. This building was the most stunning building we saw during our week in Barcelona. Not only is it beautiful, but it is an acoustic masterpiece. One not to be missed!!!!

We attended a concert at this beautiful music concert hall on the 12th of September. The music and flamenco dancing was extraordinary. Well worth a visit.

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

Yes, you can visit the Café in the back and still enjoy the architecture but if you want to see the actual main hall with the signature glass drop, you do have to get a guided tour or see a show. Definitely worth visiting... More

When there is a concert the building is open so don't hesitate and walk around. As you sit for the concert, the whole concert hall surrounding is full with Modernista decorations.

By the way, there are always stands serving Cava out door, before entering the hall. You don't need a pre-reservation.
