You cannot even hear what you think, as the place is over crowded with screaming kids. The volume is so high that it is unbearable, as there were thousands of school kids queuing up and entering the building.

If you want the elaborate decor, be sure you go to the large auditorium. The small auditorium has great acoustics too, but not the ambiance.

Clearly, if possible, go to Palau de la Musica to see a performance, but even if you can't do that, it's a very interesting building and definitely worth the time to see. You must take one of the paid tours, but that's the good news...More

We went here to see a flamenco performance, which ended up costing about the same as the tickets to just visit. It is a must-see, beautiful building. Experiencing it in use was the frosting. To see it filled to the top with people was amazing.

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

I think tour is obligatory. At the door they told us to wait for the guide before we enter. I think that's good because it guarantees the protection of the monument. It's also a very pleasant guided tour. Every hour they... More
