Enjoyed a wonderful flamenco shoe. We bought last minute and it was completely worth it. Truly cultural unique experience in an incredibly beautiful theatre.

Everyone talks about Gaudi all over Barcelona, but it is the moderniste period that should be celebrated. We went to visit the St Paul hospital with its wonderful history and were thoroughly overwhelmed with the architecture by Montaner. We went to see the Palau De...More

It sure has quality but it's a small thing but they charge pretty heavy. If you're rich or if you just love this kind of thing, go, otherwise, don't go.

Try to see a performance at night and enjoy the building as it should be enjoyed. We saw a remarkable flamenco dance and music performance and thrilled to the whole experience.

We took the tour and bought tickets to the Flamenco Opera the same night. To us this was a don't miss experience.

One of Barcelona's gems of Modernism. I had previously gone on a tour and, on this trip, was able to attend an opera. The small stage creates constraints for sets but these were addressed very well by creative minimalist staging. The intimacy of the small...More

A 9:30pm showing of Flemenco in this amazing theatre is worth every penny...and you do not need to buy the expensive tickets the 30euro tickets give a great view. The interior alone is quite spectacular...but the Flamenco and music itself is an intense and very...More

We recently visited this venue, which is stunning inside and out. We attended a classical guitar concert in this lovely setting, which was perfect. I can recommend this venue as a wonderful palace of Music and is not to be missed.

If you can, and the season allows, you should buy concert tickets instead of visiting tickets. The acoustic is perfect as is all the ambience. The concert hall is marvellous and something you should definitely see.

The Palau de la Musica Orfeo Catala is simply breathtaking and well worth a visit. We had booked the first tour of the day, which has the advantage of being less crowded. It was a rainy, cloudy morning, and the stained glass windows were still...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

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.
