We went here by mistake - intending to go to the Palace of Music - but really, really glad we did. An escorted tour with just 4 people was amazing. The history of the building is very interesting but it is the design, décor and...More

The opera itself is beautiful and interesting but we were able to listen in on rehearsals for Il Travatore and although I'm not a big fan of opera music in general, it was wonderful to hear the voices and see the performers perfecting their craft.

Wished for many years to have the opportunity to visit inside this opera house. I found the opportunity to spend less than one hour in a guided tour, very nice; friendly guide; quite expensive.

Rigoletto. Brilliantly played, sung, acted and produced. The set was flexible. The red robes swirled.

I was able to attend the express tour (30 minutes, €6) and it was excellent! The opera house has an interesting history, and you hear lots of stories on the tour. Inside the theatre is so beautiful, well worth a quick trip inside!

I used to live in Barcelona, and had for several years a subscription to El Liceu, so I know this venue very well. The opera house was rebuilt after a fire in the 90s. It caused much controversy because some folks believed the fire was...More

La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry
riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-metre boulevard,
and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La
Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll
past impressive human statues and artists while others
take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at
one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic
Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and
