    What to Expect
    Select a departure time to suit your schedule then greet your accomplished guide outside the Palau de la Música Catalana. Hailed as one of the country’s most exquisite examples of Art Nouveau architecture, the pristine Palau de la Música Catalana is a UNESCO World Heritage-listed structure that demands attention. 

    Sail past the crowds at the entrance hall with your skip-the-line ticket and immediately begin your tour in the remarkable Rehearsal Hall. Watch a captivating 15-minute clip that provides historical context then feast your eyes upon the elaborate staircases that ascend to the second floor. 

    Run your hand over lavish marble banisters as you climb the staircase and pass intricately decorated tiles. Gasp at the natural illumination in Lluís Millet Hall and gaze out of the interminable windows that stretch from floor to ceiling. Wander past pillars smothered in delicate mosaics of flowers then become mesmerized by the architectural allure of the Concert Hall, a room considered the structure’s centerpiece. 

    Marvel at the ecclesiastical panels of stained glass and gape at the dazzling dome that functions as an incandescent skylight. Gain insight into the inspiring architects responsible for the construction of the Palau de la Música Catalana from your guide, hearing tales of Pau Gargallo and Lluís Bru. 

    Upgrade your tour to include a 20-minute mini organ concert in the prestigious musical venue: take a plush seat in the auditorium and delight in the melodies of the organ and the excellent acoustics of the theater.

    After an hour of enriching exploration, bid farewell to your guide at the exit of the building.

    Whatever you do don't walk past this place! That would be easy to do as it's tucked away in the Gothic quarter but you'd be missing a real gem. Take the 1hr guided tour for the full background on the Palau. Enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides and, if you're very lucky, you

    Truly a beautiful music venue. Enjoyed the short tour, and wish we could have seen a concert there. I would definitely recommend this as a must-see in Barcelona.

    First, before anything, be SURE you have selected a tour timeslot that will be presented in YOUR language. I simply selected a timeslot but found out later it would be presented in Spanish. I could've selected an English slot for 30 minutes later but I didn't notice what

    Beautiful building, seats slightly uncomfortable but not to dissimilar to those in the UK, worth it for the music.
