On Sunday 26 November, this iconic Catalan modernist concert hall is going to host its traditional morning session of free visits, with access to little-explored spaces.
The Palau de la Música is one of the treasures of Barcelona that everyone must see at least once in a lifetime. Doing so is very simple: you just have to go to a concert. But if we're caught up in the music we may miss the details that are hidden in Domènech i Montaner's masterpiece: the shape of the columns, the variety of colours in the stained glass windows, the climbing stairs, busts and floral designs. And, in addition, there are many hidden-away spaces in the building to which we don't usually have access. For this reason, once a year, the Palau organizes an Open Day, which will be on 26 November this year, during which we will have five hours, from 10am to 3pm, to explore the Palau's little-known spaces.
What can we see that's a little special? In addition to the concert hall and the Lluís Millet Hall, where people spend the remission during concerts, and that even has a bar, you can access the balcony, which opens up on a garden containing columns all of different colours, and visit the Documentation Centre of the Orfeó Català, which is on the fifth floor and conserves documents that date back to the 12th century. Another less-explored space is the Orfeó Català rehearsal room, where a special choral choir workshop will be held. Everything that you buy at the Palau will have a discount during this day: in the souvenir shop, at the bar- restaurant and also at the box office, since the price of tickets for four upcoming concerts will be reduced by 50%.
