Your Palau De La Musica Experience
If you’re looking for a bit of history, culture, and beauty during your stay in Barcelona, a guided tour to the Palau de la Musica is just the thing for you! Visit the only concert hall to be declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. Located on a narrow unassuming street in the Ribera district of the city, the building represents the unique and distinct modernista style of architecture. Step into the hall and you will be stunned by the aesthetic blend of sculpture, mosaic, stained glass and wrought iron on the facades of this unique modern building.
There are two ways to enter the building, the first being the newer entrance located adjacent to the foyer of the building which provides a much needed meeting place and, as the best meeting places are, is open to the public every day. The second entrance is through the lobby which is set between two lamps, representative of an era long gone by.
The concert hall is home to the Orfeó Català choir and is funded entirely by public donations, making it just as much a part of the cultural, architectural and musical fabric of the city's history. You can make your to the choir's rehearsal room where you can watch a 15-minute audio-visual presentation on the history of the Palau de la Musica and the thriving society of the early 20th century. The central part of the structure is, of course, the concert hall itself, a vast, lavishly decorated space that is flooded with light, courtesy of a central skylight, Enjoy the opportunity of walking on to the stage itself and looking out at the hall, viewing the audience the way the performers do.
Lastly, you will get to visit the Sala Lluís Millet, named after the founder of the Orfeó Català choir to end your tour. The giant stained glass windows of the room divulge the unique columns decorating the balcony of the building.
