"Palau de la Música Catalana" (Music Palace), is a concert hall designed by the architec Lluís Domènech i Montaner and opened in 1908.This building is the headquarters of "Orfeó Catala", a prestigious institution grounded in the year 1891 to support Catalan music and culture. This is why the decoration of building shows some representations of the "quatre barres" (which is the Catalan coat of arms).
Inside all the scene is an sculpture representing in one side the "Ride of Walkiries" and in the other side, the figure of Beethoven, sculpted by Pau Gargallo and Dídac Massana.The splendid central glass light on the roof was made by Rigalt and Granell. The façade is made in red brick and decorated with mosaics from Lluís Bru.
The Palau de la Música Catalana organises daily guided tours of the Modernist Concert hall and, when available, Lluís Millet Hall and the Chamber Music Hall.
