Palau de la Música Catalana (www.palaumusica.org)


Built between the years 1905 and 1908, this is one of the most outstanding buildings with one of the best architectural designs of Barcelona.

This building is located between the Calle Sant Pere Mes Alt and the Plaça Lluís Millet. It has a ground floor, a further three floors, and a capacity of two thousand.

Most of the decorative elements are concentrated on the stage where we find the famous organ pipes of the Palau, the mosaic of the coat of arms of Catalonia (original by Lluís Bru) and the eighteen muses with instruments by the sculptor Eusebi Arnau. The sculptures by the famous sculptor Pablo Gargallo should also be mentioned.

In 1983 the structures of the Palau were restored, and it was expanded to include administrative offices and cultural entities.
