Tour was informative. Beautiful! Next time I’d book a concert. Not bad price as all the tours in Barcelona seemed a bit high.

This is a beautiful Hall, and worth a visit, either for a program, or a paid tour during the day. We saw a unique Guitar Orchestra concert with about 35 guitars and guest dancers. Such international luminaries as Jonas Kauffman also perform here. Well worth...More

I can only speak of the guided tour in English, which was excellent. It enabled us to appreciate the splendour & beauty of this theatre, learn about its history, and we were lucky enough to be able to listen to 10 minutes of rehearsal. There...More

Lovely place to tour. Acoustics are great. Organ powerful. Guide was so so. I felt she was more smug/tired of tourist (or maybe the lame jokes) but still worth it.

A Spectacular place to visit. Would recommend seeing what concerts are on during your stay as tickets are around the same price as a guided tour.

This place is absolutely stunning. We were lucky enough to be there during the rehearsal for Peter and the Wolf. We were able to enjoy a bit of the concert while they practiced. We left with our hearts full.

Toured the music hall on recent trip to Barcelona. Very beautiful music hall. Went to the top to see it all. Great sound as well!

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
