This music hall is amazing! Normally, we do not go on guided tours, but the guide here was very entertaining, friendly and informative. Because we were on the very first tour of the day, we were a group of less than 10 people which made...More

Tucked away, this hidden gem is definitely worth a visit! You can enter the main lobby/cafe area of the building for free but you need to book a tour if you wish to see the auditorium and other rooms. I was lucky enough to be...More

The Palau de Musica is stunning. I enjoyed seeing and learning about it more that Gaudi's Casa Batlo and Park Guell. It's a remarkable building with wonderful history that will resonate with many ages. Even my 15 year old daughter was impressed!

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants

Treat it like any other concert or show and arrive in plenty of time. There is a great little tapas place directly opposite the ticket window - it looks like an old pub but it had the best tapas we'd eaten all week. To be... More
