Guided Visits to Palau de la Música Catalana

The visit begins in the Rehearsal Hall of the Orfeó Català, the location of the foundation stone laid in the building in 1905.

The Palau de la Música Catalana was designed by the Barcelona architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner, one of the major figures in Catalan modernism. Constructed in the early years of the 20th century, it is one of the city's iconic buildings and has become one of its most popular tourist attractions. It is, without doubt, one of the architectural gems of the country and a must-see for any visitor to Barcelona, together with the iconic works of Antoni Gaudí.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1977, the Palau hosts performances of the world's finest classical and contemporary music and can now be explored on a guided visit. The visits begin in the Rehearsal Hall of the Orfeó Català, which is the location of the building's foundation stone, which was laid in 1905, and which, more than 100 years later, is still used for rehearsals by the Orfeó Català choir. The tour then proceeds through the Palau's halls, such as Sala Lluís Millet and the main Concert Hall, accompanied by the music of the Palau organ. The guided tour can be booked every day from 10am to 3.30pm until 31 May. More information is available here.
