What to see at the Palau de la Música Catalana

The Palau de la Música Catalana is much more than an auditorium with spectacular acoustics and where important concerts are held, but it is also one of the most representative Catalan monuments of modernism and one of the most beautiful in Barcelona.

The Palau de la Música was built between 1905 and 1908 to house the Orfeón Catalán and is currently a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

It is possible to visit the Palau de la Música Catalana and here we are going to tell you how to do it.

Barcelona - Palau Musica - StageThe Palau de la Musica can be visited in a guided way in a tour that will take you through all its corners while giving you details about the building and its uses.

When you get to the Palau, its exterior will captivate you in a very special way, because modernist art reaches its highest point here.

The Main Old Facade is impressive.

The facade is on the corner of two streets and on that corner there is a spectacular sculpture called The Catalan Popular Song.

Facade of the Palau de la MúsicaSaint George and different groups that represent the entire Catalan population, from peasants to high society, are represented in this sculpture, since it was considered that the Palau was built for the entire town.

On the façade, its arches and balconies must also be highlighted, as well as its columns and the busts of different musicians.

Its façade is probably the best thing about the Palau de la Música Catalana, but its interior should not be forgotten either. And that is why we recommend you enter and enjoy a building that will not leave you indifferent.
