Palace of Catalan Music of Barcelona
The Palace of Catalan Music (Palau de la Musica Catalana, in Catalan) is a music auditorium designed by Barcelona architect Lluis Domenech Montaner, one of the top representatives of Catalan modernism.
The construction was carried out between the years 1905 and 1908, with well-advanced solutions in the structure with the implementation of large glass walls and the integration of all the arts, sculpture, mosaics, stained glass and wrought iron. The building, headquarters of the "Orfeón Catalan," was paid for by industrial and financial Catalans and music lovers.
In 1997 UNESCO included the building in their list of World Heritage sites.
Daily guided tours are organized to the Palau de la Música. Places are limited so it is recommended to purchase tickets in advance. The visit lasts about an hour and the price is 12 €.
