Palau de la Música Catalana.

The Palau de la Música Catalana (Catalan Music Palace) is one of the select monuments deemed an official UNESCO World Heritage Site and still widely accessible to the citizens of the world. Today, the masterpiece by modernist architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner stands out among the world’s most prestigious concert halls.

Built between 1905 and 1908, the hall has now turned 100 and is still as alive as it was on day one. The recent renovation and the addition the Petit Palau demonstrated how the building could be elegantly refurbished to meet the needs of the modern music scene.

The Palau de la Música Catalana is an artistic wonder built in deference to music, and remains to this day an active center of social and artistic works, constituting a perfect blend of business and pleasure, stylishly couched in the modernist ideology. Locals and tourists alike are awed by its rich décor, skylight details, stained glass windows, busts of famous composers, floral colonnade, and the ever-present synthesis of bare brickwork and ceramic ornaments. Domènech i Montaner’s work was designed for the Orfeó Català.

The symbolic nature of the Palau de la Música makes it indispensable for the Catalans; its splendor makes it unforgettable for music-lovers; and its artistic and architectural legacy makes it dear to all of humanity. It is a remarkable representation of the immense talent of an architect inspired by curvilinear drawing, iron structures, mosaics, and polychrome glass.
