Palau de la Musica Catalana

Print

Palau de la Musica CatalanaThe Palau de la Musica Catalana (Palace of Music), opened in 1908, is one of the most important works of Barcelona art nouveau. The architect commissioned for the job was Lluis Domenech i Montaner, one of the greatest exponents of Catalan Modernismo. The construction, decorated with scultures, mosaics and stained glass by the finest artists and artisans of the time, is perhaps the best example of the synthesis between architecture and decorative arts that characterised this artistic movement.

Since the concert hall was designed for a site between other buildings, it was dificult to provide it with a truly exceptional exterior, so the architect chose to dazzle the visitor inside, immersing all who enter in a world of colour and fantasy.

The Palau, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site, was recently given an extension and a thorough facelift, in which some blocks of flats blocking the view of the Palace were demolished.
