    The Concerts are nice, no doubt. But the tour is short (50 mins) and expensive with 20 euros. The option with an additional concert can also be visited for free in the Lobby.

    Instead of paying for the Tour, go to a Flamenco performance! You can experience the building and it's acoustics while enjoying some culture (trio de flamenco is really good!!)

    Best to see a concert of flamenco or Catalán music and visit by yourself rather than pay for a tour... Double your pleasure for a few € extra 😉

    Incredible experience for the eyes and the hears. Far from the touristic musts of Barcelona, this niche theatre has been an amazing surprise.

    A must see! And have a drink or snack in the cafe, or better yet watch a concert. But before you go in, walk around the building and be amazed by this work of art!

    A gorgeous, absolutely over the top space. There’s way more detail here than the pictures can show. Catch a classical concert, if you can

    You can take a tour for 15 euro or 11 with a discount from touristic bus. Also at approximately the same price there are concert tickets where you can enjoy the show and see the beautiful interiors.

    We enjoyed the visit so much that we booked our tickets for P J Gonzalez (guitarra espanyola). Amazing building, scene and acoustic. One of the best experiences here in Barcelona. Go, go, go !

    Just gorgeous. Attended a flamenco thing. Barcelona might not be the “right” place for flamenco, but the show here beat the pants off the flamenco I saw in Sevilla, by a mile.

    Must! Must! Must! Great example of “modernisme catala” by the architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner. Go to any of the concerts just to appreciate the interior and the sound!

    Did the tour 4 years ago, it was great! We had a tour above the ceiling and we had a demonstration of the organ. Today, we did the tour again, but the tour was not as good as then and boring! No demo!

    This place is just beautiful. The sound goes through the whole building and it resonates in beautiful way. Plus any educational event here seems to be really inspiring. Full of great things!

    Been here 10+ times
    Spring for good seats; being in the middle of that beautiful hall is more than worth the price of admission. This is the kind of tourist trap you can happily wander into.

    16 euros for the self guided tour is a bit too much. Have a look at the entrance take some pictures have a beer or churros with the 16 euros you saved.

    Excellent concert hall. Saw the Orquestra Guitarres de Barcelona. Acoustics were very good. Great Architecture

    The skylight represents a sun that expands in all directions and bathes with its water nymphs that seem to sing in the water, a lake that contrasts with the warmth of the centre of the structure.

    Beautiful concert hall. Take the tour and then enjoy a cocktail on the terrace outside. Sometimes the tour fee includes a reduced concert ticket price.

    Amazing building. It is a shame the streets are so small so you can't see the whole building at once (but maybe that's a bit of it's charm as well).

    Must-see concert hall for music lovers! A composer close to our heart? Francisco Tárrega who lived in Barcelona during the building's construction. Nokia Tune ringtone is based on his work, Gran Vals.

    Even locals dress up to attend their notorious flamenco shows with excellent dancing. A truly unique cultural experience unlike any other that is worth the late-night excursion.

    Beautiful building. You don't have to go see a show to look at the inside. There are several tours in English every day.

    Catalonia became increasingly rich at the end of the 19th century. And this new wealth needed symbols. It was a choral group which asked Lluís Domenech i Muntaner to build a prestigious concert hall. Read more
