This is a beautiful theater with a stunning façade, centrally located on the Rambla. We visited the theater in the evening, when it was dramatically lit.

I booked for the tour that took in the private club, the reception room and the theatre itself. I was the only person on the tour so I had a very personalised experience. the Seniors price of 12€ was well worth it for the experience.
