PALAU DE LA MUSICA CATALANA

Palau de la Musica Catalana by Bed and Breakfast in BarcelonaNot strictly within the borders of La Ribera but north of the Calle Princesa in the Santa Catarina i Sant Pere district, the Palau de la Música is, for many, the most outstanding contribution of the modernist movement.

Declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1997, it was designed by Lluis Domènech i Montaner, a contemporary of Gaudí‘s also responsible for the magnificent Hospital Sant Pau. A riot of symbolism, the Palau de la Música Catalana, constructed between 1905 and 1908, is a feast for the senses.In 2003 local architect Oscar Tusquets completed his sensitive extension of El Palau, providing extra rehearsal space, a library, and another, underground auditorium.

It is worth checking their program when in town; concerts range from international orchestras and soloists to jazz and sometimes world music. Tickets for local acts are often very reasonably priced. If not, there are daily tours of the building . Advance purchase for these is recommended.

A wonderful place to spend a Sunday morning listening to wonderful music surrounded by incredible architecture, also, from the Casa Maca Guest House you can be there in just a few metro stops!

Address: Career de Sant Francesc de Paula 2, Barcelona
